With the increase in penalty for breaking traffic rules, people try to avoid traffic policemen after breaking a traffic rule. However, it’s not only the traffic policemen that can stop you for a driving offence. With cameras everywhere, most violators are now caught on camera for a driving error. Hence, it is necessary to be careful while driving on Delhi roads. Additionally, these cameras are equipped to capture a speeding vehicle and can even spot a vehicle in the dark.
So, if you are not caught by the traffic police while jumping signals, driving at a high speed or weaving through traffic, there is a high chance that you may get detected by a camera. And if caught on the cameras, depending on the offence made, drivers can get an e-challan. The e-challan is sent through an SMS on the driver’s registered mobile number. One can also get a physical notice at his/her registered address.
The owner of the car generally gets 60 days from the date of issue of the challan, to clear the e-challan. If the challan is not cleared by the deadline, for non-compliance, the challan can also be forwarded to the court. The driver’s driving licence can also be suspended for 3 months, in case the matter is taken to court. Additionally, as punishment, one can also be charged with a fine, besides being jailed for up to 3 months or both.
