"The challaning amount is Rs 10, 000 for the offence under Section 194E of the Motor Vehicle Act. This will help those on the way to different hospitals in ambulances in serious condition," the DCP said.

He added that the Gurugram police are already providing green corridors to ambulances carrying organs meant for transplants or any such similar practice to help save patients' lives.

This comes as the traffic police have already tightened their grip on enforcing security rules on the Delhi-Gurugram expressway.

In December 2023, the department said that commercial vehicles operating on the first two right lanes of the expressway would be fined Rs 500. However, if the rules are breached the second time, a fine of Rs 1,500 will be imposed.
