Reflector, in general, refers to any object and not the source of light that reflects light back in a specific direction when light is projected on it.
Major road accidents due to good carriers without reflectors at night time can take place leaving the person severely injured. In consideration of the possibility of road accidents, the Regional Transport Office, (RTO) will start imposing fine on vehicles without reflectors.
The owner or the driver of the vehicle will be liable to pay a fine of Rs 1000 if the rules are violated.
A fine of Rs 1500 will be imposed if the driver increases the song volume. They will recover a fine of Rs 500 for the first time but then direct fine of Rs 1500 will be needed to pay.
An RTO officer said “it was very much necessary to display reflectors during the passing of a vehicle. Reflectors play a vital role in saving the lives of the people. A driver coming from behind can judge the distance of the vehicle ahead and will take precautionary measures to avoid road accidents. Hence, the vehicle owners should ensure reflectors in white, red, and yellow on their vehicles.”
