According to the Union Road Transport and Highways Ministry “each year, 5 lakh road accidents are reported in the country, in which 1.5 lakh people lose their lives. The government is perpetrated to minimize the accidents and fatalities by 50 per cent in five years”. The Union Cabinet passes a draft law to massively increase penalty for traffic violations on Wednesday . Such as juvenile driving, over-speeding and drunken driving so as to improve road safety under the proposed Motor Vehicle (Amendment) Bill of 2016.
For juvenile crimes, the guardian or owner of the vehicle will be deemed guilty with a hefty fine of Rs. 25,000, along with three years of imprisonment. The registration of the vehicle will also be cancelled.
The penalty for driving without vehicle insurance is proposed to be increased to Rs. 2,000 from Rs.1,000. The government has proposed inserting a new provision in the law for levying a penalty of Rs. 10,000 on people not allowing way for emergency vehicles.
Red is one of the strongest colors, it’s blood, it has a power with the eye. That’s why traffic lights are red I guess, and stop signs as well… In fact I use red in all of my paintings.
