The city’s traffic department has increased the fine to Rs 1,500 for those who install fancy number displaying plates and unnecessary stickers on their vehicles.
In the city these days, many young people are seen riding bikes and driving cars with flashy numbers and stickers. They also manipulate the numbers so that it is impossible to determine what the actual registration number is.
According to the new orders, the traffic department has increased the fine for vehicles with such licence plates. The Motor Vehicles Act governs all aspects of automobiles. It includes provisions for vehicle registration, such as vehicle size, number plate colour, and number plate colour. Any deviation from the established regulations constitutes a violation of the act.
“The majority of the violations are seen on sporting bikes and cruiser bikes.” The riders creatively stick their names and the names of family members.
The number of violations is less this year compared to last year. Traffic cops deployed at squares across the city have been instructed to recover a fine of 1,500 from each driver violating the rule.”
