Devil's advocate argument is that government could be wanting to make wearing a mask a habit among people, and those driving around have a greater responsibility, especially the affluent, in this case cars are associated with affluence, for their contacting more over larger distances, that affects tramissibility. Tough going with the pandemic worldwide, especially in India with the economic outcomes, easily this is just a protocol measure there may be adhered to. See that if getting out of the car, someone enters his or her house, the mask may then be taken off. Penalty against anyone in their private car driving without a mask, however, may be reduced. more

There should also be Proper Guidance on the usage if Masks & Type of Masks . There should be seperate Masks for Crowded Places & when in company with outsiders . For walking alone or in alone in a Car there should be a seperate Reusable Masks , which are more comfortable and easy to breath. But this seem to be our only second line of Defence , After boostig our own immunity. more

Regulation to levy penalty on passengers travelling in a private car is utterly foolish and against natural justice. This is like penalising people in the house for not wearing masks. Of course, if outsider comes home, yes, wearing mask is a good practice & must too. In a nutshell, discipline must prevail everywhere. more  
Wearing a mask inside a car when alone is a stupid idea. Only a Tughlak can conceive it... Govt should immediately drop this idiotic move. It has no scientific basis... more  
Next time a policemen try to find you for not wearing a mask in your private car (the rule is insane), tell them that you don’t have any money and see what they will do. If ask for a driving license or any other vehicle document, show them a digital copy, let us see what they can do in this case. They can’t issue a traffic violation, neither they can arrest you. Probably after 10 or 15 min they will let you go. more
