What is the new traffic rules in india ?

  1. The past few days have seen a lot of buzz around the updated Motor Vehicles Act as well as the new traffic rules and hefty challans it now includes. The conversation around it further intensified when a Honda Activa owner was slapped with a fine of ₹23,000 for multiple violations — not only is that challan amount massive, but pretty much 50 percent of a new Honda Activa scooter’s cost. So, yes, the country is finally sitting up and taking notice of the traffic laws it has consistently ignored so far.

    Be it fear of getting stuck with a substantial penalty or the general keenest to conform to India’s traffic laws, people are quite curious about what the Motor Vehicles Act 2019 is all about. Well, for now only 63 clauses from the Bill that seeks to amend the original Act have been implemented in India. And these 63 clauses tend to a variety of aspects, including vehicle fitness, protection of Good Samaritan, cab aggregators, driver training, and, of course, road safety.
