  • Here is a complete list of proposed fines as per the Motor Amendment.
The Rajya Sabha cleared the bill to amend 30-year old motor vehicle law to improve road safety on Wednesday. This move will raise penalties for traffic violations, curb RTO (Regional Transport Office) corruption and other measures to transform the transport sector.

Though the Lok Sabha has already passed The Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Bill, 2019, last week, it will head back to the lower house as the government had subsequently amended two provisions.

The amendment now comes with some strict measures to deal with traffic violations in order to bring down the increasing number of road accidents, and cultivate responsible practices.
