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.

Venkataraman’s two-wheeler was identified during a check of pending vehicles, leading to the issuance of a notice to his home address. However, he did not provide the correct information, according to the traffic police.
Venkataraman received a notice from the traffic police a few days ago, asking him to pay the fine. Venkataraman expressed shock at the sum and said, “I cannot afford such a large fine.” Please feel free to use my two-wheeler.

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.

“We are visiting the homes of vehicle owners with fines exceeding Rs 50 thousand and issuing notices. Similarly, based on the vehicle registration number, it was discovered that the vehicle owner has fines totaling Rs 3 lakhs. We have issued a notice. If the fine is not paid within the specified time, further legal action will be taken,” said Anitha B Haddannavar, DCP, Western Traffic Division.
