If you’re caught for a traffic violation in Karnataka be prepared to pay more. The Karnataka transport department has hiked traffic fines. According to the special gazette notification published on June 25, 2019, fines have been fixed focusing on the offence as opposed to the vehicle category and are almost in tune with the cabinet approved Central Motor Vehicles Rules.

Fines for using the mobile phone while driving, wrong parking, exceeding the speed limit and other offenses have gone up multi-fold.

  1. Police till date could not implement metered auto’s as they are incapable to control autowalas. But they can easily loot money from general public. Belgaum public is very silent and peace loving but now time has come to come together and oppose it strongly.
