Violating traffic laws in Bangalore could get you in some serious trouble, as the police have now decided to take a tougher stance on traffic violations.
The Bangalore traffic police plan to book violators under a more stringent IPC section. They will be targeting three major offences – driving or riding against the flow of traffic, riding on the footpath and wrongful parking.
According to a media report, violators will be booked under Section 283 of the IPC, which deals with danger or obstruction in a public way or line of navigation. It has a provision for the cops to seize the vehicle, which can only be released through a court.
Since January, the police have registered 4,200 cases under this section. It is said that impounding the vehicle and having to appear in court to secure its release serves as a better deterrent than a fine.
