The use of large tablets on the windshields of cars will not entail prosecution, the head of the State Traffic Inspectorate Mikhail Chernikov said at a briefing. According to him, in such a situation, traffic police officers will recommend motorists to simply outweigh gadgets so that they do not interfere with the review.

«If we see that the tablet is huge on the windshield — this does not mean bringing to justice. This means that the Traffic police officer should say  — «move it to another place ». We all understand that nothing will change from the fact that he will issue a fine. And the administrative penalty does not affect any subsequent actions,” Chernikov explained (quoted by Interfax).

The head of the department also stated that traffic police inspectors do not have the task of increasing administrative practice in this line. Chernikov added that it is always possible to appeal the fine in the prescribed manner, including through the website of the State Traffic Inspectorate.
