It looks like the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill 2019 will continue to be the topic of news as we are seeing some new reveals every other day. The fines in the new bill for traffic violations fines have been increased so much that the amount is making people scared.
Recently a man from Bikaner, Rajasthan has been issued a challan of a whopping amount Rs 1.4 lakh for overloading his truck and violating several other traffic rules. The challan was issued by the special enforcement team of Delhi Transport Department on 5th September to truck driver Bhagwan Ram. On September 9, the truck driver cleared the challan in Delhi’s Rohini Court.
This is by far the highest challan amount issued by the traffic police after the amendment bill came into force. A week earlier a truck driver from Odisha’s Sambalpur was issued a ticket for Rs. 86,500 but the driver paid Rs. 70,000 after negotiating in the Court.
Well, seems like the new amendment bill is going to keep the people under control from violating traffic rules while creating a hole in your pocket!
