According to Eqtesadnews, quoting online news, for more than a month, serious restrictions have been imposed in the country to control and deal with the corona virus, of which traffic is the main part from 9 pm to 4 am; According to the decree, people who drive their vehicles at this time are required to pay a fine.
But in some cases, some citizens may receive text messages about being fined for being in a place they have never been to at that particular time. The response of the traffic police in these cases to the citizens is that an error has occurred and no fine will be imposed on them.
If a text message is sent by the police to a citizen who has had an illegal time and place on this date, this message does not mean that the final notification has been made to the citizen and the fine has been recorded in the system and in the vehicle records.
Colonel Ainullah Jahani, Deputy Minister of Social Affairs and Traffic Culture of Rahvar Police, told Khabar Online: “People whose text is checked for registration should know that this is the primary message, and in the second check made by the operator, all items are checked.” It becomes. In our reviews, our colleagues check the color, model and authenticity of the vehicle, and if there is no match, all these items are automatically deleted and do not remain in the system at all.
Colonel Jahani emphasizes: Dear citizens, rest assured that if a message is sent to them and they are not present, the fine will not be calculated in any way; Fines will be issued to people who have received the second SMS.
However, receiving a text message to issue a fine is not pleasant for anyone, and in addition, many people may not know that sending a text message does not mean the final registration of the fine, and this causes concern for citizens.
Rahvar police advise citizens to know in this case that they do not have to worry about fines until they have received the second text message, but if they want to be sure, go to Rahvar 120 website and see their records there; Or text your vehicle VIN written on the back of the car card to 1102020 and be informed of the amount of their fine.
