Delhi is known for its crazy traffic. The issue is so troublesome that the government had to revise the traffic rules and implement new laws to ensure a smoother traffic flow. The new rule that got implemented on September 1 aims at bringing down the number of traffic rule violators and right on the first day 3900 challans were issued in the city.

Traffic has been one of the biggest issues for people living in the city and to tackle this, the Delhi Government has amended the existing Motor Vehicles Act and introduced a newer version in its stead.

What's the update?

If you have been one of those people who have been driving/riding on the Delhi roads without a care in the world, well, it seems that the time is up for that. With the amended Motor Vehicles Act, Delhi Traffic Police handed out exactly 3,900 challans on its very first day of implementation.

In a bid to promote road safety, Delhi government has chosen 'The stick approach' by implementing stricter rules and levying heavier fines on people who do not follow the traffic rules.

What does this mean for the common commuter?

The amended Motor Vehicles Act advocates for a stricter approach towards rule-breaking, which will be seen in the form of heavier fines and bigger penalties.

In simple words, where you had been able to get off with ₹100 as a no-helmet fine, now you'll have to pay ₹1,000 in its stead. Yes, the figure is 10 times more than what it was before!

Also, if you're found driving sans a license, you may be levied with a fine of ₹5,000 or face 3 months jail time .

Knock Knock

The days where you could simply let your hair fly in the wind while riding a bike or ignore traffic laws just for the heck of it, are done with. With stricter laws in place and bigger penalties to pay now, if you drive on the wrong side of the road, you'll end up on the wrong side of the law.

Make sure to follow traffic rules and steer away from being a daredevil on the road.
