Gadkari also had to pay a fine on the Bandra-Worli sea link

The central government has imposed heavy fines for violating traffic rules by amending the Motor Vehicle Act. As the amount of penalty to be levied for violation of rules is a windfall, it is currently under discussion. However, Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari himself had to pay a fine once for violating traffic rules. Gadkari made the remarks while addressing a function in Mumbai on Monday.

Modi government has completed 100 days after coming to power for the second time. An event was organized in Mumbai on Monday to mark the occasion. Speaking on the amendment to the Motor Vehicle Act, Gadkari said, “The amendment to the Motor Vehicle Act is not discriminatory. The passage of this Act is a great achievement for the Central Government. Penalties for violating traffic rules have been increased. This will increase transparency. There will be no corruption, “Gadkari said. Talking about the amount of fine, Gadkari recalled that he himself paid the fine. He said, “I have also paid the fine for speeding on the Bandra-Worli sea link. What’s more, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and General V. K. Singh has also been fined for speeding, “he said.

The central government has drastically increased the amount of traffic fines, saying it has failed to reduce the number of accidents in the country in the last five years. If you do not wear a seat-belt while driving a car or if you do not wear a helmet on your bike, a fine of Rs. A fine of Rs 5,000 instead of Rs 500 has been imposed for speeding, and other fines have been increased for violating other traffic rules. So there are good and bad reactions to this.
