Even today, the radio tape recorder occupies an important place in many car dealerships. Years go by, technology is improving, cassettes are inferior to disks, disks - to "flash drives", "flash drives" - to Wi-Fi connection. The main thing remains unchanged: driving in a car without music is somehow boring. At the same time, not every driver is aware of the fact that replacing the audio system in a car may result in a fine, or even deprivation of rights.
What other action in relation to the design of the car could be more harmless than replacing the radio tape recorder? However, from the point of view of the letter of the law, even such a modification of a favorite vehicle can go into the category of illegal changes in the design of the car. If a car with such a "revision" without appropriate documents is caught by law enforcement officers, then the driver cannot avoid problems. First of all, material.
The violation is qualified in accordance with part 1 of article 12.5 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation "Driving a vehicle in the presence of malfunctions." In the easiest cases, for violation of this article, a warning is provided to the driver with the requirement to eliminate the violation. However, more often law enforcement officers resort to fines of 500 rubles with the requirement to return the vehicle to its original state within the next 10 days. In the event of a relapse, the traffic police has the right to simply suspend the registration of the car. In turn, driving a car without registration is fraught with a fine of 500-800 rubles and (or) deprivation of a driver's license for a period of 1 to 3 months.
Of course, if you just replace the radio tape recorder itself, then the traffic police will not find fault (most likely no one will even notice). This is strictly a full-scale improvement or replacement of the entire audio system when additional speakers and subwoofers appear in the vehicle. Audio devices that are too large or too powerful can be dangerous for both the motorist and other road users. Therefore, when performing major improvements, such changes must also be verified and registered.
