BENGALURU: Vehicle drivers beware! Even a petty traffic violation could punch a hole in your pockets, as the fine amounts have been increased substantially. The new fine slabs came into effect from Wednesday.

The traffic police, who on an average book about 16,000 cases of traffic violation cases daily, will be eager to charge traffic offenders with costly receipts.

 

According to traffic police, on the first day of new fine slabs traffic offenders, who were used paying fines in hundreds, were taken aback when they were asked to pay in thousands.

K.V. Jagadish, DCP, Traffic East, maintained that the new fine structure will deter people from violating traffic norms. He said the government’s move is not to burden the people, but to educated them about following traffic rules.

The impact of new fine slab will show positive results in the coming days with fewer violations, he added.

According to traffic police statistics, an amount of Rs 21.12 lakh was collected in the East traffic division alone, on July 23 and 24.

 

As many as 20 vehicle riders have coughed up Rs 1,000 each for parking on footpath. Rs 2.57 lakh was collected for speeding.
