Hyderabad: The traffic police, with the help of the judiciary, will be conducting a three-day Lok Adalat at Goshamahal stadium from October 5 where defaulters can pay 50 per cent of their pending challan amounts and get the rest waived.
There are over Rs 100-crore worth of pending challans.

Those who were booked for drunken driving can avail of the Lok Adalat too, provided their blood alcohol levels were below 100.

 

DCP (Traffic) Mr A.V. Ranganath said several motorists booked for drunk driving had abandoned their vehicles and skipped paying the fines. “Magistrates usually give jail sentences only if the BAC count is more than 100. So those with less than 100 BAC can avail the Lok Adalat, pay the challan amount and take back their vehicles too,” he said.

Defaulters can approach their nearest traffic police station from Monday to fill up the Lok Adalat forms. However, those paying online will not get the 50 per cent waiver.

Mr Ranganath added that those who failed to pay during the Lok Adalat would face serious consequences in forthcoming special drives and their vehicles would be seized.

 

“This is an opportunity for motorists to pay their pending challans. About 18 magistrates would be offering their services at the Lok Adalat. Motorists can avail the facility from 10.30 am to 5.30 am,” Mr Ranganath said.
