OGS and HGS users suffer due to illegal crossings: TÜDER Secretary General Cengiz: - "We expect the devices to be read by the system while passing through bridges and highways and to be notified to drivers in time"
Deniz Cengiz, Secretary General of the Consumers Association, stated that they have recently received many complaints from drivers about the automatic transit system (OGS) and the rapid transit system (HGS) not working properly, and said, "We expect the devices to be read by the system while passing through bridges and highways and to be notified to the drivers on time." .
Cengiz, AA correspondent, said in a few months, especially heavy burden carriers high amounts of penalties, he said.
OGS and HGS users of bridges and motorways passing through the system was not read by the system, without notifying them that they had to pay a very high amount of penalty for paying attention Cengiz, said:
“Vehicle owners who are detected to pass without paying the fee determined for the highways where access control is applied, is fined 10 times the toll for the longest distance of that route. The amount to be paid corresponds to 10 times with the standard toll fee corresponding to the class of the vehicle and 11 times administrative fine. The penalty applied on highways (closed system) is 11 times the fee corresponding to the class of the vehicle, based on the station fee located at the farthest distance from the station where it is passed.
Emphasizing that the penalty should be paid less according to the Misdemeanor Law, Cengiz argued that the drivers were subjected to very high fines without realizing it.
Cengiz completed his speech as follows:
“In this respect, in accordance with the provision in Article 172 of the Constitution, 'The State takes protective and enlightening measures for consumers, encourages consumers to protect themselves', it is very clear that the punishments should be of a deterrent nature rather than corrosive and victimizing. In addition, information is the most important universal consumer right. For this reason, we expect the authorities of the Highways, especially the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, to be sensitive, to ensure that the devices are read by the system while passing through bridges and highways and that the drivers are notified on time.
