Our reader recorded a police car in Gdynia when he was controlling speed while standing in a stoppage place. Police officers in reflective uniform say they were allowed to stand there because they were doing their duty, which meant that “there was an out-of-court counter-offender for the offense.”
Our reader registered an unregistered police car on Friday morning when traffic policemen controlled the car radar driving down the street. Flyers see the map of Gdynia in Gdynia.
– Do not the police have traffic regulations? – With such a question he sent us a film.
What about the police? – The actions of the uniformed officers of the road traffic department consisted in controlling the speed. Officers had reflective vests and used a tagged police car. Speed control belongs to the statutory tasks of the police, aims to protect life and human health as a priceless good – explains Michal Ruska from Gdynia City Police Headquarters.
He points out that in recent months there have been 19 accidents in the city, caused by excessive speed. One person was killed and 22 others were injured.
– The activities of the police officers should be interpreted as a non-partisan counter-offense in respect of the exercise of their right or duty. The speed control location has been selected in such a way as not to expose the remaining road users to any danger, Ruska explains.
But there is some reflection. The stop sign was set because someone thought stopping at this place was dangerous. Does the parked police car in this place such a danger to traffic does not cause? And would the driver who would be detained by the police in this place also not threaten the traffic? As traffic officials in safety vest say two cars on a stoppage do not pose a threat, then maybe the sign of the ban is unnecessary?
