Riding. The word is not just a verb but an
emotion in itself to many, especially youngsters. It’s always special to ride a
bike. The thrill that you get
while riding a two wheeler is something that is unmatched, isn’t it? I am sure
all bikers would agree to this.

But, with the thrill
of riding; follows the responsibility of safe riding. Well, how many of you actually
even have an active two wheeler insurance policy? I’m sure very few hands are
up or very few nodding heads.

However, not only must
you be a safe rider but also ensure that you are riding well with the limits ­-
the limits laid down by law. As for the present, you must know that the penalties
laid down by the central government have just got more stringent than before.
You break one traffic rule, and it will leave a big hole in your pocket.
Seriously!

FACT CHECK: REVISED PENALTY

Seeing the rising toll
of road accidents each year, the central government decided to crack the whip
of traffic violators. The Cabinet recently approved the Motor Vehicle
(Amendment) Bill, 2016. This road safety bill includes penalties in case of all
sorts of traffic violations.

Here are few of the
revised penalties for violating traffic rules & regulations:

These penalties are
set to bring about road discipline.

That is a long list. Isn’t it? I hope you
now know the laws as well as the punishment/penalties also for violating them.
Why spend on traffic tickets, when you can ride responsibly and safely? Makes
sense, doesn’t it? As they say, it always better to be safe than sorry. Life is
precious dear friends.
