How do I report to Traffic Police?

 
As I strolled down the street, I suddenly came across an improperly parked car. What can I do in this case? Can I report to the Traffic Police? Is it safe for me?
 
What do I need to know before reporting to the Traffic Police?
Control of road transport - in other words, traffic police. The Office is subordinate to the Ministry of the Interior and its main function is to control the movement of road vehicles.
 
Police authorities can collect information with my help, but the decision on voluntary cooperation belongs entirely to me.
 
How can I report to the Traffic Police?
One way to alert the traffic police is through a telephone call to a special emergency number 112. In this case, the call will be addressed to the National Police Service. Since I am very likely to be unaware of what service to turn to, I am entitled to call 112 for information that is not considered as malicious.
Another way to alert the traffic police is by electronic means. It is possible to do this by e-mail at: 112-rc-sofia@mvr.bg, (Regional Center 112); pr.press112@mvr.bg (Ministry of Interior Press Office).
It is possible to send an electronic signal through a special mobile application.
What are the terms for reporting?
What do I need to know if I want to alert 112?
 
I can not be denied access to it
I can also call to report a traffic violation - for example, an incorrectly parked car. The information I must provide to a 112 center in this case includes my names, a contact telephone, an exact address, a point of reference for the place of the offense, and whether it represents a danger to the population.
Calling 112 is free of charge, including street phone booths.
What do I need to know when e-mailing?
 
I can submit a report with a suggestion of actions to the Traffic Police by e-mail. It is good to know that for traffic offenses and crimes that are not directly related to road users, traffic police can send my alert to the service.
Traffickers are required to inform me about the content of the alert.
Anonymous alerts are NOT being considered. Upon clarification of the case, the Traffic Police may request information and documents, but not if their surrender prejudices my dignity or constitutes a danger to me.
Within two months, if they do not surrender the case to a higher authority, the Traffic Police must come up with a decision. Meanwhile, they have to keep me informed of what they are doing. The decision on my alert shall be notified to me in writing within one week of the date of its issue.
The case goes to court and they call me as a witness. It is my civil duty to appear. If, however, I am afraid that the testimony may harm me, I have the right to quit. In this case, I must notify the court in writing, and in my refusal I also state the reasons.
When I play with 112 (I'm kidding, I'm mistaken) I'm responsible! (7.1 of the Rules). The fee may also rise up to BGN 20,000. I am also liable for the damages and losses caused to the emergency services. If I commit a second violation, the fines are doubled.
 
What do I need to know about the mobile app?
 
It is designed to make it easier for citizens to report traffic violations. Through it, I have the opportunity to send information and evidence (photos, videos) to the Ministry of Interior more quickly. Therefore, if I caught an offender on the road (wrong driving), the mobile app would do me a better job.
Signing conditions as well as details about the content are displayed on the page.
Could the offender know about me?
No, as my personal data is protected and only MoI employees and emergency call centers 112 have access to them.
 
The data are recorded in the information centers of the 112 centers. After the expiry of a four-month period, the data are moved, and if not used for up to three years - they are destroyed.
 
If information leaks, the offender learns about me and starts threatening me, I have the right to report to the police. Separately, if the leakage of the data is due to a civil servant, he is responsible, together with the state, for the damages and losses caused to me.
