Bengaluru: In a recent directive, Alok Kumar, the Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) responsible for Traffic and Road Safety in Bengaluru, has mandated that all vehicles must be equipped with headlights in accordance with the Central Motor Vehicle Act. The move comes in response to the growing use of LED lights, which emit excessive brightness and pose risks to other motorists, especially those traveling from the opposite direction.

Kumar emphasized that LED lights, particularly in heavy-sized vehicles like trucks and buses, can cause eye strain and contribute to accidents. To address this issue, he has made it compulsory for all motorists to install the specified headlights as per the CMV Act. Violations will result in legal action against the offenders.
