Specialists of the road supervision Service of the police of the Ministry of internal Affairs of Turkmenistan have introduced a new system for determining the average speed of vehicles in order to improve road safety and prevent road accidents in the territory of Ashgabat.
How this system works:
The average speed of vehicles is calculated using mathematical calculations, taking into account the time that the vehicle moves between two points, when it enters and leaves a given distance, using speedometers installed on the road.
If the speed increases, the vehicle owner will automatically be held responsible.
More specifically, it is allowed to drive at a speed of 60 km/h on N. Andalib street, and if the video surveillance equipment on this street is located at a distance of 1 km, the driver must travel this distance in 60 seconds 24 MS.
If you drove the specified distance faster than the specified time, it means that you exceeded the speed limit between two points.
Among the questions sent to the e-mail of the editorial office of "Turkmenportal", there are 4 most frequently asked questions on this issue:
1. I drove near the radar at the specified speed, but I was fined. Why?
The fact is that some drivers slow down, driving closer to the radar, and then increase the speed again to the next point.
As we have already noted, this system mathematically calculates the average speed of a vehicle. If you received a fine, it means that your average speed exceeded the limit.
2. How do I pay the fine?
- you can pay online using the PÝGG program for mobile devices;
- the official web site of the postal service "Türkmenpoçta"online;
- in information kiosks located at gas stations and other information kiosks;
- PYGG employees use POS terminals that accept Bank cards
3. How do I find out if I have fines?
- you can check on the official website of the postal service "Türkmenpoçta";
- by calling the PYGG service phones.
- on information kiosks located at gas stations and other information kiosks;
4. Last frequently asked question: do video surveillance points only measure speed violations?
Systems installed on roads also detect other traffic violations.
For example, violations of the rules for using seat belts, eating, talking on the phone while driving a vehicle, and so on.
