Motorcycles and cars make noise
A total of 11 acts under the Road Traffic Act were issued to the drivers of four BMW passenger cars and seven motorcycles for the first two weeks of September, as a result of the active actions of the officers from the “Road Police” sector at the ODMVR – Burgas, engaged in limiting of increased noise levels when moving MVP along the main road arteries of Burgas Municipality.
The police officers carry out constant control of the increased noise during movement, and upon finding the violation of the ZDvP in question, they initiate administrative and criminal proceedings against the violators, applying the foreseen coercive administrative measures.
Since the beginning of September, 11 acts have been drawn up and the administrative-criminal procedures have been launched.
Checks for faulty silencers on motor vehicles or the lack thereof continue at the moment, as the officers of the “Road Police” sector work mainly in the dark part of the day.
In case of detection of technically defective motor vehicles with missing silencers of the exhaust system, acts for establishing the administrative violation, as well as orders for temporary suspension from traffic, are issued and served.
The police officers of the ODMVR – Burgas also carry out checks for changes in the construction of motor vehicles, leading to high noise levels – installation of special noise-amplifying pipes, removal of the catalyst and the silencer. The changes made lead not only to unbearable noise, but also to environmental pollution.
The sanction provided for in the law for this type of violation is a fine of up to BGN 200 and suspension of the vehicle until the malfunction is rectified.
Cars that exceed the noise level due to a technical malfunction are also fined.
The control over motor vehicles moving on the territory of the Burgas Municipality continues to be strengthened even today, and the employees of the “Road Police” sector are uncompromising in finding violations of the Road Safety Act.
