The Russians have become more careful on the roads and paid fewer fines in a year

The Russians began to behave more carefully on the roads: the average check for breaking the rules for the year decreased by 4%, according to a study by Russian Standard Bank, the results of which are available to RIA Novosti.

„The total average bill for traffic violations in January-June 2022 decreased by 4% compared to the same period in 2021 and amounted to 521 rubles,” analysts calculated, having studied the spending of Russians on cards. In addition, they separately provided statistics by category, depending on the amount of fines.

The first category is those with the lowest share of payments for a check of 250 rubles. This could include fines for minor violations, as well as payments totaling 500 rubles, while paid with a 50 percent discount (within 20 days from the date of the decision). Novosibirsk became the leader here with a share of 63%. The second place was shared by Krasnodar, Saratov and Rostov-on-Don with 64%. And the third was in Tver with a share of 65%.

The second category is the cities with the largest share of receipts for traffic violations, paid in the amount of 500 rubles. Novosibirsk and Krasnodar shared the first place out of ten considered regional cities, which accounted for 23% each. The second place belongs to Saratov with a share of 16%. And the third place belongs to Krasnoyarsk with an indicator of 15%.

And, finally, the third category – the cities where the smallest share of fines for serious violations on checks above 3,000 rubles in the total number of payments for traffic violations was noted. As it turned out, not a single such receipt was noted in almost all cities from the top 10 with the largest number of receipts paid for by cards for traffic violations: Kazan, Novosibirsk, Voronezh, Ulyanovsk, Naberezhnye Chelny, Krasnodar, Saratov, Krasnoyarsk, Rostov-na – Don. In Moscow and St. Petersburg, these shares were less than 1% each.
