Traffic Penalties In Bangalore 2017

Traffic Penalties And RTO Fine List In Bangalore 2017

The Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Sri. Nitin Gadkari introduced the Motor Vehicles Bill 2016 in the Lok Sabha which was passed successfully but the Rajya Sabha is yet to decide on this act. So let’s get a brief idea of what are these new changes in the traffic rules.

A study says that every year 5 lakh road accidents are reported in the country in which 1.5 lakh people lose their lives. It is really an appreciable step taken by the government to reduce the increasing accidents in the country.

Following is the list of penalties that you should know even though you own a vehicle or not:

Rash driving: The fine for driving a two-wheeler carelessly will be increased from Rs 300 to Rs 2,500.

Over-speeding: If someone is found to be driving above the maximum permissible speed limit, he/she will face a fine of Rs 1000 (for motor cycles and two-wheelers) or Rs 1500 (for MMV and HMV).

Driving under the influence: People driving under the influence will have to pay a hefty fine of Rs 5,000 and/or do 50 hours of community service and/or face 6 months’ license suspension.

Allowing unauthorized person to drive: The violators will have to pay a sum of Rs 1,000 and/or face imprisonment for one month (for two-wheelers), and Rs 5,000 and/or jail term of 2 months (for MMV and HMV).

Driving without seatbelt/helmet: These violations will cost the offenders Rs 2,500.

Defective equipment (like silencer, number plate)/shrill horn: The driver will have to pay a fine of Rs 2,500.

Violation of traffic signals: Drivers who are found disobeying traffic signals will have to pay a fine of Rs 2,500.

Hit-and-run: In such cases, the fine will be up to Rs 2 lakh.

Accident fatalities: The Bill proposes that the accused will have to pay a monetary compensation of Rs 10 lakh to the victims family.

Using a no-permit vehicle: Earlier, the Bangalore traffic police would impose a court fine on offenders. However, with the new Bill in the offing, it will be hiked to Rs 1,500 and Rs 5,000 for two-wheelers and MMV/HMV, respectively.

Driving a non-registered vehicle: Anyone driving such a two-wheeler will be penalized Rs 1,500 and the vehicle will be impounded for a month. However, in case of an MMV/HMV, a penalty of Rs 5,000 will be imposed on the driver and the vehicle impounded for two months.

Till the bill is implemented, the Banglore RTO and traffic police have the following penalties in Bangalore. The Bangalore police also implemented the government’s decision to fine pillion riders on two-wheelers without a helmet. So go through all these rules to avoid falling into trouble.
