There is no first-aid kit in the car – what fine will the driver pay in Ukraine

There is no first aid kit in the car – what fine will a driver in Ukraine pay< /p>

If there is no first-aid kit in the car, law enforcement officers usually draw up an administrative protocol under Part 1 of Art. 121 KUoAP (Driving with a technical malfunction). The fine under this article is 340 hryvnias.

However, some lawyers note that the lack of a first-aid kit is not a technical malfunction. Therefore, it is correct to qualify this offense under article 125 of the Code of Administrative Offenses – Other violations of traffic rules. The punishment under this article is a warning.

Unfortunately, it is not known whether there were precedents for qualifying the absence of a first-aid kit under article 125 of the Code of Administrative Offenses. Usually, patrol policemen in this case recall Article 121 of the Code of Administrative Offenses.

It should be noted that drivers should not neglect the first-aid kit. It is not a way to “get rid” of the police, but a real chance to save a life, because there can be a variety of unforeseen situations on the road.
