The Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari had already said that Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill, 2019 was passed in Parliament and a decision taken to implement 63 clauses of the Act from the month of September.

Those who do not have a valid driving license could end up paying Rs.5,000 as against the present Rs.500 as per the new bill which has increased penalties steeply for traffic violations. And for those not offering way to an ambulance coming their way, the amended Motor Vehicle Act has now added a new offence and a penalty of Rs.10,000.

Anil Kumar, Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) said, “We are awaiting the official orders and once we receive, the new penalties would be immediately

enforced. In fact, this would improve traffic system as many would follow traffic rules to avoid heavier penalties”.

Penalty on traffic rule violations include over-speeding, drunk driving, driving without helmet, offences by juvenile, provisions pertaining to driving licences, vehicle registration, dangerous driving and without insurance which have been increased by five to 10 times.

On minors, violating the traffic rules, the amended bills said that guardian/owner would be deemed to be guilty along with a penalty of Rs 25,000 with three years of imprisonment and the juvenile would be tried under Juvenile Justice Act. The registration of motor vehicle would also be cancelled.
