How many drivers drive without insurance? Yes, millions of them!

In 2017, the number of fines for driving without a policy of “autocitizen” has grown to 2.8 million, and the Russian Union of motor insurers reported that about 3 million car owners go without “avtograzhdanki” or with fake insurance policies. The increasing cost of compulsory insurance forces car owners to do this, and in fact objectors even more, experts say.

And with each passing year becomes more and more motorists who do not purchase the policy. So, in 2015, there were about 189 thousand fines for this violation, in 2016 this figure amounted to 1.9 million of fines, in 2017 — 2.8 million (+40%), how much he will grow this year?

But the number of contracts is gradually declining, despite a growing fleet. So, according to the publication, in 2013, concluded 42.7 million contracts insurance, in 2014, 42.6 million in 2015 and 39.9 million in 2016-m — 39.1 million in 2017 39.2 million

If refused it will be too much (at least 8-10 million motorists), there may be a crisis of confidence in the CTP, which in a Domino effect will lead to the fact that citizens will massively sabotage insurance is mandatory. The problem could be a decrease insurance fees, but its hardly worth the wait.

In PCA, however, believe that it is necessary to increase the penalties for driving without a policy, but to identify unscrupulous motorists using the same cameras fotovideofiksatsii. This issue is discussed for years, but until the authorities can decide on such innovation.
