There have been widespread debate over the newly-announced hefty fines for traffic violations which were notified last month as a part of provisions of the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act, 2019. The law was implemented in several states from September 1 and several people have been coughed up hefty fines for traffic violations in many parts of the country.
But a few states like West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh have denied imposing new traffic rules while Gujarat has implemented it but with reduced fines for violation of traffic rules.
