The RTO has made the decision to target four-wheeler drivers who are caught listening to loud music while operating their vehicles.
Now, those who put other people’s lives in danger for their own pleasure will be fined Rs 1500 for listening to loud music while driving.
In addition to putting one’s ears at risk, listening to loud music while driving is against the law. The consequences of even a little error can be severe. A driver who commits the offence for the first time will be fined $2500. If he makes this mistake a second time, he will be fined 1,500.
In the city, many autorick- shaw drivers are also seen playing loud musicdriving while driving. The pas- sengers have to suffer due to the noise. Since a rickshaw has no side glasses, the noise also disturbs the others around them. In areas such as Futala, Ambazari, IT Park, London Street, Seminary Hills, and Sadar, youths drive cars in high spirits and play- ing loud songs at night. This is disturbing for not people living in these areas.
