This Festive Season, Remember These 5 Things While Driving To Avoid Getting Into Trouble

In this festive season, the government will strictly deal with those who engage in reckless and dangerous driving or violate traffic rules. Fines for violation of traffic rules have been increased after the implementation of the new Motor Vehicles Amendment Act 2019 in the country. Heavy fines will be imposed for dangerous or drunk driving.

According to reports, several changes have been made to the amount of challans and a single mistake on your part can even result in the cancellation of your driver’s license. And so, here are five things to keep in mind when driving this festive season.

Sources say authorities are going to be tough this time on those driving with expired licenses.

The vehicle’s pollution certificate is compulsory. After the modification of the MVA law and with an increasing awareness of the population, the graph of road accidents has dropped sharply.

According to new rules notified by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, if a bus or taxi is found to exceed its capacity if any of its employees misbehaves with passengers, smokes while driving or drives below while being drunk, he will have to be severely punished.

Treating police or traffic officers inappropriately, failing to stop the vehicle, sitting in the cab of the truck will be considered an offence. In such a situation, the driver’s license may be suspended or revoked.

The new vehicle law has also eliminated the hassle of carrying documents. It has also been made mandatory for traffic police and RTO inspectors to register the amount of the fine and the action taken against drivers on the government portal.

However, the law has been criticized by several opposition parties due to the high fines.
