A new Motor Vehicle Act is now in India where Fines for breaking Rules is beyond limit.

You can target particular people for not following rules.
But who want to be resposible in India ?

Bureaucrats ?

Political Bosses ?
Never ?

What else can be expected from Indian Public ?

First make Government Bodies responsible then make all follow rules.

OPINION | Why Should a Fine be Affordable? If You’re Callous Enough to Violate Law, You Deserve to Pay the Price

Given the loss of innocent lives every day on account of someone else breaking the law, the amended Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill should rightly be welcomed by one and all.

Starting September 1, penalties have been hiked to curb road accidents following the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill 2019, which was passed in the Parliament more than a month ago. The fines are much higher than what they used to be, clearly intended to act as a deterrent for on-road negligence. Given the loss of innocent lives every day on account of someone else breaking the law, this amended bill to make our roads safer should rightly be welcomed by one and all.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t quite work like that in politics. Opposition-ruled states like West Bengal and Rajasthan have chosen not to implement it and surprisingly, Gujarat, ruled by the BJP, has also followed suit seeking a report from the RTO. The reasons cited are that the fines are too steep and therefore unaffordable. Since many cannot pay them, it will lead to more corruption. Such an argument not just defies logic, it is bizarre. Why should a fine be affordable? It is meant to act as a deterrent. Making it affordable will negate the objective.



Let’s be clear. A fine needs to be paid only if one breaks the law. It is not a mandatory tax for all. No one will force a fine on you if you follow road rules while driving. If you are callous enough to violate the law, you deserve to pay the price. Why empathise with the law-breaker instead of worrying about the safety of innocent lives?
The focus of our ruling class should be to make roads safe, prevent loss of innocent lives caused by drunken driving. Or accidents on account of drivers engaging with their mobile phones behind the wheel. Or violating traffic signals. Or speeding beyond the prescribed limit. All of which can lead to accidents causing loss of limb or life. For a family which loses a loved one or which lives with a member incapacitated by an accident, their life changes forever. It is irreversible. Nothing can be more painful. Now, when the law has finally been amended to check such violations by enforcing higher penalties, it is a much needed change which, frankly, should have been implemented earlier.
Why bring politics into areas which involve public safety? If the government of the day is not able to do the right thing, the courts need to step in soon and set things right. It is about life and limb, no politics here, please.

Aday after the newly amended Motor Vehicles Act came into effect, a Delhi-based man was fined Rs 23,000 in Gurugram on Monday.
The Gurugram Police impounded Dinesh Madan’s Activa and fined him under the new traffic Act.
Madan, a resident of Geeta Colony in East Delhi, was driving without basic documents, including a driving licence, registration certificate, pollution certificate, police said.
"He didn’t have third-party insurance as well," police said, adding that Madan was not even wearing a helmet.
The traffic police personnel had challaned Madan near the Gurugram court on Monday around 1 pm.
The Motor Vehicles Amendment Act, which came into force on September 1, aims at stricter punishment for violation of traffic regulations.

According to the Act, driving without a seat belt, drunk driving, jumping traffic signals, speeding, driving without insurance and overloading vehicles will attract heftier fines.
Driving under the influence of alcohol, not giving way to ambulances or fire brigade will attract a penalty of Rs 10,000 or imprisonment under the Act.
Also, if a person has been caught driving without a registration certificate or a driving licence, it would attract a penalty of Rs 5,000 each. If two-wheeler owners are caught riding without helmets, they will not only have to pay a fine of Rs 1,000 but could have their licences suspended for the next three months.
Experts believe that higher penalties will help in reducing cases of accidents and traffic violations significantly.

The Motor Vehicles Amendment Act, aimed to increase road awareness among citizens, comes into force starting September 1. Violating traffic rules will now attract harsher penalty the newly amended Motor Vehicles Act comes into force. Driving under the influence of alcohol, not giving way to ambulances or fire brigade will attract a penalty of Rs 10,000 or imprisonment starting September 1. In some cases, an individual violating laws could end up paying the fine and going to jail. The Motor Vehicles Amendment Act, which was approved by President Ram Nath Kovind last month aims at stricter punishment for violation of traffic regulations. Besides, the amended rules include several other stringent measures to increase awareness and road behaviour. Not wearing seat belt, drunk and dangerous driving, over-speeding, jumping red lights, driving without insurance and overloading vehicles will also attract higher penalties. Meanwhile, if two-wheeler owners are caught riding without helmets, they will not only have to pay a fine of Rs 1,000 but could have their licences suspended for the next three months.


Reactions:

1.
किस-किस को लगता है कि पुलिस और ट्रैफिक पुलिस को बॉडी कैमरा अपनी यूनिफॉर्म में कंपलसरी करना चाहिए जिससे कि करप्शन और फेंक चार्जेस में कमी आए और कई बार पकड़े जाने पर जो लोग झूठे इल्जाम लगाना स्टार्ट कर देते है या धमकियां देना स्टार्ट कर देते हैं उनके खिलाफ भी कार्रवाई हो सके।

Make compulsory having running Camera on Traffic Police Uniform to stop corruption and manipulating people & police both at same time.

2.
Policemen will take very advantages of making money from public instead of control of road accident . This bill can not be make road safety but if so build good road infrastructure to reduces accident.

3.
20 to 30% of the Truck drivers are illegal, and they have fake licence with them but they are all surviving because of these traffic police and local police as well, by taking regular bribes.. and the truck drivers are the most dangerous ppl as they carry the heaviest vehicles on road! and 80% of the people die when they meet an accident with such heavy trucks and there is no any chance of surviving when they are crushed under those truck tyres.. Here the law has their own hand in accidents rather directly i would say, and on the other hand 50% of the Roads in india are damaged with lots of potholes and also narrower.. which causes accidents of smaller vehicles on a regular basis. SO first of all there are lack of law enforcements and facilities.. secondly there is government error in maintenance, and then after that there is normal public error which is drunk and drive, or rash driving carelessly and so on.. But to enforce the rules and huge amounts of tax on public, they should first eradicate their own corruption, they should provide public with neat and safe roads, they should take immediate action on illegal truck drivers, they should suspend the corrupt bribe taking officers, and after that when they have adequately done their job, they should impose taxes and rules..
