A Royal Enfield Bullet owner in the city of Bangalore has been fined a massive Rs 57,200 for traffic violations. The Bullet owner is said to have been booked for 101 traffic violations across the city over the past 11 months.
According to Times Of India, the Bullet Owner, Rajesh Kumar a 25-year old private company employee has been given three days to clear all his dues. Reports also suggest that if he clears his dues, Rajesh Kumar could become the highest penalty payer in the city.
The Royal Enfield Bullet owned by Rajesh has been seized by Adugodi Traffic Police. They have also reportedly issued him a notice, asking him to clear all the challans raised against from September 2019 until the 26th of August 2020.
An investigating officer told TOI that if he fails to clear his dues within the given deadline, then the matter will be referred to the courts. Rajesh will then have to appear at the court, pay the fine and only then get his motorcycle released.
As per the reports, the Royal Enfield Bullet owner had been booked for 41 cases of riding without a helmet, 28 cases of pillion not wearing a helmet, 10 cases of using mobile while riding, 6 cases of no entry, 5 cases each of jumping traffic signals & lane discipline, 3 cases of wrong parking and 3 other cases.
Rajesh was caught by the cops while jumping a traffic signal in Kormangala I Block, near the Wipro Junction. When the cops noticed the long list of violations, the matter was referred to the senior officers, who seized the motorcycle and handed over the owner a 5.5-feet long challan.
The Bullet owner is a resident of Electronic City, while his office is situated in Whitefield. Hence, most of the traffic violations have been registered in the same area. Police also stated that, with less police personnel manning the roads during the COVID-19 lockdown, 60 of the total 101 violations have happened post-April-2020.
Back in July, another biker was caught for speeding on the Electronic City flyover. The superbike owner was riding his 1000cc Yamaha R1 at almost 300km/h. The rider has since then been caught and arrested by the cops, with the matter having been investigated by the Central Crime Branch — here are the details.
Thoughts On The Bangalore Biker Paying Rs 57000 For 101 Traffic Violations
The massive fine clearly shows the ignorance of the owner regarding the traffic rules in the city. The fine, hopefully, make the motorist realise his mistake and ensures he doesn't flout any traffic regulations in the future.
