The courts of Moscow deny the appeals of car owners against the penalties for parking on the grass lawn, imposed through the photos via an application “Moscow’ Assistant”

The penalties, imposed via an application “Moscow’ Assistant” (PAK PM), cannot be cancelled or can be cancelled in a more complicated way.This happened after the Transport Department had issued a revised version of “Moscow’ Assistant” on the occasion of a Plenum of Supreme Court. For example, on October, 4 one of the courts denied a complaint, stating that the explanations of Supreme Court apply to “Infringements in the area of road traffic”, whereas the company was “charged for the infringements in the domain of provision of urban amenities”.

At the same time the experts doubt the statements of judges and the MADI in regard of certificates, received for PAK PM. Thus, the All-Russian Research Institute of Metrological Service clarifies that the issued certificate applies only to the software part of a system, but does not cover the smartphones of the citizens. Besides, the Rosstandart points out that an Institute of physicotechnical measurements had performed an expert examination by the order of an agency in 2017 and has recommended not to refer the PAK PM to the measuring equipment. This conclusion was adopted by the Department of Metrology of Rosstandart and is still valid.
