In order to make the law with respect to traffic strict, traffic police started filing cases along with imposing a fine. However, when they realised it is not helping in curbing the traffic violations, Regional Transport Office (RTO) officials have ordered traffic police to suspend the driver’s licence for three months if he/she is found talking on the phone while driving. 

Due to reckless driving, road accidents have increased in Mumbai. Henceforth, traffic police will book the reckless and negligent drivers under section 283 of IPC. Traffic police started taking legal action against traffic offenders from October 1 and so far, 40 people have been booked under this section.
