Nowadays, the traffic police are on high alert. They are creating records by collecting hefty amounts of fines from traffic rules violators. Majority of the traffic rules violations are committed by four-wheeler, bike and scooter drivers. Traffic police are mainly identifying the owners of modified vehicles and charging them with heavy fines.
Heavy Fines Imposed According to New Traffic Rules
Modified bikes are easy to spot from a far distance. For them, the Government has imposed fines of up to ₹25,000. Furthermore, as per the intensity of the traffic rules violation, their driving licence can also be revoked and will be serving deserving punishments. So, for you to avoid any inconvenience from traffic police you should avoid having these modifications on your vehicle.
Traffic Rules on Different Types of Vehicle Modifications
Modified Two Wheeler
If you are planning to modify your vehicles or have done some already, then you will be inviting hefty fines as high as up to ₹5,000 for every alteration or six months of jail time.
Modifying the silencer is the best for some people to make their vehicle look cool. But they don’t know that a modified silencer does not comply with BS6 norms, which means it promotes air pollution. The fines can go as high as ₹10,000.
