Sunroofs are now a standard feature in vehicles made in India by OEMs. Despite being an added convenience, people in India are breaking safety regulations by using them to navigate moving cars. Police departments from numerous states announced that they would begin issuing challans against the criminals in response to the problem.
A video of a girl peeking out of a Jeep Compass’ sunroof was recently posted on social media. Mumbai Police filed a challan against the woman after acting on the video.
It is unclear under which sections the challan has been filed against the woman. Reportedly, the video was shot on the Mumbai Sea Link. In the video, the woman can be seen enjoying herself poking her head through the car’s sunroof. Moreover, the car seems to be moving at high speed on the open road. It is to be noted that doing such a thing can possibly result in a fatal accident and is a violation of road safety norms.
Sunroofs were a standard feature of luxury automobiles only a few years ago. In India today, many inexpensive cars come with sunroofs. The sunroof is a great way to let fresh air inside while also improving the car’s aesthetic value. However, people seem to be misusing the feature.
