nice! no vehicle, no violation. India should crush vehicles in case of serious violations, as the UAE does

I can''t understand the discussions can ve this immature. It''s like people want one be in the Medevial age only. I understand that we should have good roads but doesn''t mean that not having that gives freedom to public to do what they want. There has to be some civic sense.

strictly implementation of laws are more important than harsh nature of it. Earlier laws were incompetent not because they were not strictly implemented. Now there harsh laws will lead to increse of curruption. in order to avoid official penalty the compromise formula will be accepted. police, politician will benefit from it at the cost of nations benifit

Stringent penalty will reduce traffic violations, also bring in Points system, apart from fine, cut points as well, yearly point system, if drivers exhaust revoke their Drive license and re-do drive test, make test Automated examination, India driver dont have patience, they push into everywhere, no lane disciple, hardly people use Indicators maybe they think their home power bill increase, Driver dont wait for people to cross roads, always rush, I have seen 2 wheelers push into platforms as well. To avoid inconvenience to others, let the driver go (except under Alcohol or Crime), send Tickets to home, if dont pay, revoke their credit, block their social rights. Stringent penalty only can reduce Road accidents.

I don''t see any problem with the fines,Indians only listen when they get hit hard they never seem to follow the rules or the law atleast now they will pay attention to road roles and law, if you want to pay fines follow the rules, what''s the problem you break law you pay and that''s how it should be you go to America Europe or anywhere they have strict laws when it comes to traffic laws And the penalty for breaking them is huge too, follow them and live happily.

Truth

I really don''t understand when people argue that they should fine govt for bad roads, why don''t you follow the rules first then see what happens. are you okay if govt doesn''t fine and let the roads be full if pot holes ? By arguing on behalf of drivers who have to pay hefty fines... you are supporting them. Some one here is worried auto industry if every one uses public transport... what more can we say about people like this. most of the comments seem to be made without any thought.

Prasad

Don''t blame the vehicle or its cost. it is the rider/driver who are flouting the rules. Traffic rules needs to be stringent

Coldflak

Don''t be surprised if you see a post by Bhakts and chaddis that this is a good move by BJP to make up the shortfall in tax revenues. All those who oppose this are anti-nationals and should be deported to Pakistan.

Anjari

Unfortunately, there is no challan for bad road conditions and traffic issues and bad quality workð ¢

Kishore

MR NS WHY ARE YOU CONFUSING THE ISSUES BREAKING RED LIGHT DRIVING ON FOOTPATHS IN OPPOSITE DIRECTION HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH POTHOLES IT IS LIKE MAKING AN EXCUSE FOR MURDERER BECAUSE OF POVERTY.

Kishore

PEOPLE MEETING ACCIDENTS DUE TO TRAFFIC VIOLATION SHOULD FORFEITB ANY PERSONNEL INSURANCE BENEFIT.

Kishore

MANY BIKERS ARE EMPLOYEES OF SWIGGY AND ZOMATO THE CRIME COMMITTEDBY AN EMPLOYEE THE PRINCIPAL EMPLOYER IS ALSO RESPONSIBLE AND SHOULD ALSO BE FINED

Kishore

HOPE MANY MORE FOLLOW THIS GREAT EXAMPLE MOST OF THE BIKES ARE ROBBED AND HENCE THEY. HAVE NO PAPERS BEST WSY TO GET RID OF EVIDENCE OF THEFT IS TO BURN THE EVIDENCE

N

Good example.He is free to set his bike on fire. police has no legal rights to arrest him.For Road safety, 1st government needs to solve potholes, and other road issues.

Ramesh

NEW TRAFFIC OR TERRIBLE NEW RULES IS A QUESTION..... THE RTOS OFFICIALS HAVE SUDDENLY HIT A JACKPOT....!!???THEY MAKE MAXIMUM OUT OF THEIR OTHERWISE A RESPONSIBILITIES........GOD FAVOURS RTO OFFICIALS.....

Sonti

If fines will continue like people go for public transport or bicycle.where the auto industry go?

Sandeep Sharma (Bengaluru) replies to Sonti Svln Sastry

Good for pollution and traffic control.

Mohan

Let this become a case for wide publicity and put this man behind bar.
