Cameras & Blackberries to Check Offenders
In order to prevent the chaos on the roads stemming from citizens breaking traffic rules, Ramanagara District Traffic Police has geared itself with technology that provides no escape to all those breaking the law, be it speeding, crossing the red light, drunken driving, nonpayment of fines imposed or for the matter non transfer of the ownership of registration of vehicles.
WHAT HAPPENS IF…..
1. YOU DRINK AND DRIVE or SPEED
Ramanagara District Traffic Police have intensified their attack on all those who drink and drive. If you test positive for drunken driving then your vehicle would be seized and you would be required to come to court in person to pay your fines. Not only this, your offence would be recorded at a Enforcement Automation Center and can be accessed at any time by the inspectors. Remember that driving under the influence of liquor is a serious offence and can lead to driver being imprisoned.
The same is the case for those who are found driving over the speed limits set. If found to be habitual offender the fines would not only increase but you stand to lose your driving license too.
2. YOU HAVE NOT TRANSFERRED OWNERSHIP OF YOUR VEHICLE
It is illegal to not transfer the ownership of the vehicle, either when you buy or sell it. If the ownership transfer is not done on time, you could be the one being accused in case your vehicle you sold is involved in a crime, an accident or even terrorist activities.
You have 45 days to inform the concerned authorities of the transfer of ownership and get the papers in order. It is the responsibilities of both the buyer and the seller to get the transfers done.
