Come October 1, keeping side-view mirrors of their cars closed will invite challan. The fine amount is Rs 300. The decision was made in a meeting of the Standing Committee of the Administrator’s Advisory Council on Traffic Management.
Chairperson of the committee Sanjay Tandon, however, stated that he has asked the traffic police to first hold an awareness drive for around three months and then begin issuing the challans. “People are not yet aware of the decision. Thus, it is important to first hold an awareness drive and then issue the challans.”
Also, in the meeting it was decided to have a mobile app wherein people could post pictures of the violators of traffic rules. Following this challans will be directly sent to the address of the violators.
