Chisinau, 7 November /MOLDPRES/ - The National Commission for Financial Market (CNPF) has launched a campaign of informing drivers about the conditions for enforcement of the procedure of amicable ascertaining of traffic accidents.   

According to CNPF, more video spots will be broadcast within the campaign, in order to inform drivers involved in minor traffic accidents, without victims and serious damages, that they can reach an amicable agreement, thus avoiding contravention fine and penalty points. 

If the amicable ascertaining is used, the presence of police is no longer necessary on the spot to ascertain the accident and, respectively, drivers resorting to the amicable ascertaining will not be punished with traffic fines. Instead, the drivers guilty of the accident will be punished by insurers based on the bonus-malus system through the increase in the insurance prime for the next year.   

The new procedure has been in force since 8 September. It can be enforced for all traffic accidents occurred in Moldova, in which only two vehicles were involved and which resulted only in insignificant damages, worth 10,000 lei at the most.  

In such cases, both drivers involved in the accidents will fill in a form titled, Amicable accident ascertaining. The form is to be filled in only if both drivers have Motor Civil Liability (RCA) insurance and they establish the person guilty of the accident by common agreement. Otherwise, the accident is to be documented by police bodies.
