Written By:

We all know that India has taken a drastic step to bring down road accident numbers. A new bill was passed recently and many violations have seen revised fines to enforce rules to a new level.

The first two rules most would have seen is for drunk driving and riding without a helmet. But there is more. Here is a detailed list of sections under the Motor Vehicle Act, their description, along with the old and revised fines.
