AGRA: If you are driving a car in Aligarh, don’t forget to wear a helmet. Surprised? The traffic police recently fined a city based businessman Rs 500 for this purpose.

Peeved by the challan, Piyush Varshney chose an innovative way to express his anger. He reached the traffic police office on Saturday, wearing a helmet inside his car. “I was unaware that I had been issued an e-challan for not wearing a helmet in a car. I came to know last night, when I saw a message sent by traffic police on my mobile phone,” he said.

Traffic police sent a message to the owner of Maruti S-Cross that a challan has been issued against vehicle number ‘UP 81 CE 3375’ for a traffic violation of not wearing a helmet and directed the driver to pay Rs 500.

Piyush told TOI that his car is registered in his father’s name, Suresh Chandra Gupta. Showing a copy of the challan, Piyush said, according to this, if the car owner doesn’t pay the fine, legal proceedings would be initiated against him.

Aligarh Traffic SP Azizul Haque said he has received a complaint and the same has been verified. “Sometimes such errors occur while feeding numbers to issue e-challans,” he said. Haque added there are provisions in the software to correct mistakes and it can be cancelled too, if something is found incorrect. “We have corrected many such mistakes earlier too,” he claimed.
