Between January 2, 2021, and February 5, 2024, a Honda Activa with registration number KA-05KF-7969 is said to have been involved in more than 300 traffic infractions. The fine for the car was Rs 3,04,500.
Police claim that the fines were computed using CC camera footage at traffic signals and photos taken by officers while using their cellphones to control traffic.
Over the past four years, Venkataraman, a resident of Sudhamanagar who makes his living from odd jobs, has broken the law more than 300 times. Among his transgressions are failing to wear a helmet, talking on the phone while operating a motor vehicle, driving against the flow of traffic, running red lights, and riding a two-wheeler through zebra crossings without stopping.
Recently, the city traffic police have initiated the process of collecting fines from those who owe more than Rs 50,000 for traffic violations by visiting their homes.
As soon as they arrived, the traffic police said, “Your two-wheeler can be sold for approximately Rs 25-30 thousand.” How are we going to handle it? They told him to pay the fine and show up at the scheduled time.
