2) Not wearing a seat belt might also prove heavier on your wallet as the fine will be increased to ₹1,000 from ₹100 now.
3) For two-wheelers, the fine for not wearing helmets has been increased from ₹100 to ₹1,000. On subsequent charges, you may be disqualified for 3 months from driving. The new law will also be stricter on triple riding as the fine for overloading of two-wheelers will be increased to ₹2,000 from ₹100 now.
4) The new legislation provides for stricter punishment in road accident cases. The minimum compensation for hit and run cases will be hiked from ₹25,000 to ₹2 lakh in case of death, and from ₹12,500 to ₹50,000 in case of grievous injury.
5) Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari said the new Motor Vehicles Bill will instill fear of law in people who violate traffic rules as an intelligent traffic system will monitor traffic offences.
6) Getting a driving licence would also be an easier and a transparent process as Gadkari said whether the applicant is a minister or an MP, he or she will get licence only after passing online tests. The bill provides for online learners licence with mandatory online identity verification.
7) The bill provides guidelines for cab aggregators like Ola and Uber. At present, there are no rules in several states for regulating such cab services which will get licenses from state governments under the new bill. The proposed law creates a new provision of a fine ranging anywhere in between ₹25,000 to ₹1 lakh in case of violations by cab aggregators.
8) The bill includes penalties in the range of ₹1,000- 2,000 for over-speeding. Driving without insurance will be punishable with ₹2,000 fine, while driving without helmets will attract ₹1,000 penalty and 3-month suspension of licence.
9) In a first, the Centre will develop a system for cashless treatment of road accident victims during the golden hour -- time period lasting one hour after a traumatic injury during which there is the highest likelihood of preventing death by providing medical care. Besides, citizens who come forward and rescue accident victims will not be harassed.
10) If a vehicle manufacturer fails to comply with motor vehicle standards, the penalty will be a fine of up to ₹100 crore, or imprisonment of up to one year, or both. If a contractor fails to comply with road design standards, the penalty will be a fine of up to one lakh rupees. The central government may increase fines mentioned under the Act every year by up to 10%. more
 Rule and Regulations are required to be demonstrated by the Leaders and Government Officials. Will they really honour their duty in this respect? If yes, the situation in the country are likely to change otherwise, the honest and sincere citizens by nature believing in moral values (not more than 10-15% of the total population) will continue to surfer.
 Penalties in term of money has no meaning in our corrupt society. The best penalty will be cancelling the licence, putting the person behind the bars and impounding the vehicle for certain time. The person driving a vehicle (including official vehicles and vehicle of leaders) will have to pay the charges for the period of vehicles kept after impounding, which period may be one (1) hour to seven days according to the defaulter’s act. Government may charge Rs.50 or 100 per hours for period of impounding.
 No cash collection by the police. Only digital payment should be accepted from an account in the owner’s name linked to a vehicle. Traffic police department can directly charge from the account linked. A person should not be allowed to buy a vehicle unless his driving license and a bank account are linked. In case bank account does not have adequate funds, the Police department will have the right to dispose off the vehicle to collect the penalty amount and balance will be credited to the Owner’s account.
 Foremost important action in this respect as pointed out by many members, the traffic police should make all efforts to create a discipline on the road. Encroachments caused by rubbish directions (written or oral) of leaders and officials must be cleared before implementation of any rule and regulations in this matter. In case the Government fails on its part in creating nuisance free roads it has NO RIGHT TO IMPOSE ANY PENALTY ON THE CITIZENS. My sincere appeal to Governments is very clear and if all the Members do agree with this please and PLEASE DO CLEARLY WRITE THIS IN YOUR MESSAGES HENCEFORTH.
IT IS A PEACEFUL WAY OF REVOLUTION TO TEACH LESSONS TO ONE AND ALL.
