The joy of riding a bike is priceless. If you want to keep it that way, it is important that you follow the rules laid out by the government.
Indian roads witness approximately 400 deaths every day in to road accidents. About 5 lakh road accidents take place where in around 1.5 lakh people die and another 3 lakh get injured. Ignorant riders take the law for granted and end up breaking all traffic rules and regulations. They get into trouble with the law. There is no doubt about that. But the more miserable part is that the rider and the driver of the other vehicle end up losing their life or getting injured gravely.
Though there were stringent rules existing to address and punish traffic violations, accidents and violations were increasing. So the Cabinet recently approved the Motor Vehicle (Amendment) Bill 2016. This bill specifies penalties in case of all sorts of traffic violations. The proposals are based on the recommendations of transport ministers from 18 states.
Let us start with understanding some simple rules and violations:
Here are some of the penalties imposed by law on erring drivers.
|Drunken Driving||Rs. 2,000||Rs. 10,000|
|Dangerous Driving (including speaking on mobile)||Rs. 1,000||Rs. 5,000|
|Overspeeding||Rs. 400||Rs. 1,000|
|Red light violation, not using helmet||Rs. 100||Rs. 1,000 and license banned for three months|
|Driving without license||Rs. 500||Rs. 5,000|
|Driving vehicle without permit||Up to Rs. 5,000||Up to Rs. 10,000|
|Overloading on two-wheelers||Rs. 100||Rs. 2,000 and license banned for three months|
|Driving without insurance||Rs. 100||Rs. 2,000|
It is very important that you follow all these rules and never give a chance to get in a mess with the law. Repeat offenders of certain types of cases will get their licence revoked, so exercise caution. Enjoy your ride, but responsibly.
