'Drink and drive' now cost you Rs 15,000 : New Road Transport and Safety Bill

    The government wants to increase the penalty for this (Rs 100-300 at present) -- to Rs 4,000 for a first violation; Rs 6,000 the second time; and then Rs 10,000, in addition to licence suspension for a month and a compulsory training, thereafter.

Similarly, you might have to shell out Rs 15,000 or face a six-month licence suspension, if you are caught driving under the influence of alcohol.

This offence currently attracts a penalty of Rs 3,000 or imprisonment of up to three years.

For not wearing your seat belt while driving, you might have to pay a fine of Rs 5,000 and it will also give you two ‘demerit points’.

The proposed Road Transport and Safety Bill, likely to be cleared by the Union Cabinet next week and introduced in Parliament in its current session, seeks to make Indian roads safer by imposing hefty penalties for violation of traffic rules.

Among many other changes that the Bill proposes, there is also a step to remove RTO (regional transport office) officials' human discretion and the touts' role, through introduction of automated driving licence tests.
