By car to the river will not drive up
The new provisions on the water protection zone cause a double impression. It seems that our responsible persons are concerned about the protection of the Russian banks of rivers and lakes from the urban negative impact of civilization, and if you imagine some nuances and consequences of the introduction of these provisions, it becomes uncomfortable. There is a feeling that our lawmakers are only preoccupied with worries about how to poison the life of an ordinary Russian person. By the way, this also applies to innovations in the points of the law on fishing. But first – about the most important pain points of the new provisions on the water protection zone.
So, what follows from the new provisions.
If the length of a stream or river is not more than ten kilometers, then the vehicle can be left at a distance of 50 meters from the reservoir. The same distance for parking a car should be observed on the shore of the reservoir or lake.
When the length of the river is from ten to fifty kilometers, the distance from the shore of the reservoir to the car must be not less than one hundred meters.
If the river bed stretches for fifty kilometers and to infinity, then the water protection zone is already two hundred meters.
In paragraph 4 of the new provisions on the water protection zone, it is stated that now it is impossible to drive up to the reservoir on dirt roads, not to mention the parking on the river bank. This can be done only by special vehicles, probably police cars, ambulance, fire trucks, emergency vehicles, and so on. In paragraphs this is not specified. Drawing conclusions from what was written above, we can say that now you can only drive up to the reservoir along the highway, if it is laid next to a river, lake, pond and reservoir.
By car to the river ..
Now about the impressions and thoughts about these points of the “Water Code of the Russian Federation” of June 2006 with the editorship of August 2018 with changes and additions of January 2019.
Well, first, as some authors comment, they constantly violate the new provisions on the water protection zone, because, moving on a vehicle in Karelia, it is impossible not to break the law, because there are only streams and rivulets around. Secondly, what about those who need to launch their small-sized vessel into the water, and it, for example, is a hull boat like “Kazanka-M”, “Progress”, “Crimea”, “Voronezh” and even a small boat ” Ob-3 “or a boat of PVC, RIB large size, not to mention the boats. There are not asphalt roads everywhere. How usually such small boats are lowered into the water? Driving back up to the water and lowering the boat from the trailer. You don’t take any boat to the water, especially if the car is two hundred meters from the river bank. In addition, it is difficult to imagine how to leave your vehicle two hundred meters from the river, where you fish under a precipice of a river, from where you don’t see or hear what is happening with your car? Especially if there is a large village nearby. And now not only in the city, but in any village there are lovers to profit from someone else’s property. Just “undress” the car, remove the wheels and stuff.
I know for myself how dreary and difficult it is to carry even a not very big PVC boat to the water with many fishing accessories and other things if the machine is far from the water. And this happens not only for reasons of compliance with the law. All this has been tried on its back. And it’s hard to imagine a situation where an elderly person, a disabled person or a person suffering from heart disease, asthma and so on will have to do all this. How do they carry all this for two hundred meters from the river and from the river after the end of fishing? But the fines have grown up here. They now reach 4.5 thousand.
It seems that our deputies and lawmakers live in an unreal world, where there is a lot of free money, you can sleep at Duma meetings, not to go to them. Their cottages are located in water protection zones where they bought plots in violation of the law. The highway approaches directly to their dachas, where there are moorings and boats. First of all, it is necessary to start demolishing all these structures, and only then to accept some provisions that infringe the rights of ordinary citizens.
And one more thing
It turns out that now fords are banned? And if you can get to the place of catching by car only by crossing the river ford?
