After introduction of new penalties violators of traffic regulations provide essential injections in the local budget of Nikolaev and the Nikolaev area. By data on the middle of February, 2009 only the Nikolaev drivers filled up the budget from own pocket more, than on one and a half million hryvnias.
On the second place - Pervomaisk, here the sum of administrative penalties made 243 thousand 288 UAH, on the third - Voznesensk (124 thousand 250 UAH). Drivers of the Arbuzinsky area which violations, as a whole, hardly exceeded 3 thousand UAHappeared the most law-abiding
In total for the account админштрафов the regional budget "recovered" for 2 million 641 thousand 636 UAH
The head of the department of GAI of Ukraine, the general - the militia major Sergey Kolomiyets who has visited Nikolaev on Monday, offered local authorities one of ways of a rational investment of the means which have arrived in local budgets - to get cameras of stationary supervision. But from that half that remains in the local budget, according to Sergey Kolomiyts, a half of the means received for the account of penalties, remains in local budgets, and the second half goes to the state budget.
He noted that on roads, of course, nobody cancelled the state program for installation of surveillance cameras, however because of crisis it is hardly worth hoping for money from the state budget. In any case, for these purposes. And therefore I advised to manage own forces. By the principle "there are more than cameras - more money".
Interestingly, and as local officials will treat such council. Most likely, the answer will be very simple and predicted - something in such spirit: "At us and without your cameras there are a lot of problems which need to be solved. Ourselves will understand, on what to us to spend our budget money …".
