The new rules enforced hefty fines of up to ten times the previous fine amount. A large percentage of Indian motorists were annoyed with the new rule. As a result of this, conflicts between the police and motorists grew.

Recently, a police inspector was forced to issue a challan to himself for not wearing a helmet. More such incidents were reported throughout the country. A few state governments even backed out of the new laws and reduced the hefty fines.
