Gujarat slashes Centre’s new traffic fines by up to 90%

The Motor Vehicles Act (MVA) which came into force 10 days back, the fines for some of the traffic offenses have been reduced by the Gujarat government on Tuesday. It has reduced the penalties by 25% to 90%. It has been justified by the state government that it is on humanitarian and compassionate grounds that the penalties have been reduced.

According to the report, with effect from September 16, the new fines will come into force. It can be mentioned that offenses such as jumping traffic lights and drunken driving still remains unchanged. The chief minister Vijay Rupani said that collecting fines is not their priority. The humanitarian and compassionate approach has been taken in order to reduce fines.

According to the new MVA law, penalties cannot be changed by the states for many offenses which included drunken driving and violating traffic lights. There have been widespread protests for which the Gujarat government has reduced the fines, especially in Rajkot. Gujarat has reduced the fine of Rs 1000 to Rs 500 as fine for driving without wearing a helmet.
