As reported, the draft law on Avtodat assumes that vehicle manufacturers and car owners will be obliged to transfer information collected on special equipment without fail, and the government will be able to choose the operator of this system.
“The project provides for the development and subsequent introduction into continuous operation of an information system that provides the formation of an array of statistical and analytical data on wheeled vehicles from the moment of release into circulation until disposal, as well as data on road infrastructure, behavioral patterns of drivers and passengers and other information in the transport sphere “, – said in the explanatory note to the bill (materials are at the disposal of” Interfax “).
It stated that the providers of information to the Avtodata system must include vehicle manufacturers and their representatives, road owners and their users (carriers of passengers and goods), the administrator of the electronic vehicle passports system (EPTS), operators of state and municipal information systems, as well as car owners.
“In theory, a situation may arise in which vehicle owners will be obliged to donate all the required data, including commercial information, and in return will be able to receive only offers of paid services,” a source close to NTI Avtonet told Interfax.
A source close to the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade noted that Avtodata could become a “big brother” for all motorists and with its help it would be possible to issue fines without cameras on the roads based on data from a car, charge cars, ensuring the implementation of a new strategy for the development of transport complex of the Ministry of Transport until 2035 on a “user pays” basis.
The third source noted that “the bill (on Avtodat – IF) is aimed at eliminating a gap in the legislation, in which it is not unequivocally established who is the owner of the data generated on board the vehicle”, and “the theses that sound 28 billion rubles were spent on the creation of Avtodata, they do not correspond to reality. ”
