Bengaluru Traffic Police After a Scooter with Record 634 Traffic Violations Cases Pending
The Intelligent Traffic Management System camera at the junction automatically records violations
Noticing a police officer on the road might not always be a deterrent for traffic offenders, and Bengaluru police are leaving no stone unturned to drive this message home.
A recent viral revelation of a TVS Scooty Pep+ with a staggering 634 traffic violations has brought the issue into the limelight, emphasizing that breaking traffic rules won't go unnoticed.
The photographs of the infamous scooter, bearing registration number KA04 KF 9072, have surfaced, showcasing the audacity of the rider who accumulated violations, primarily related to not wearing helmets by both the rider and the pillion.
The total penalty slapped on the Scooty amounts to a jaw-dropping Rs 3.2 lakh, a figure four times the vehicle's market price.
The source of this revelation stems from a surveillance camera strategically placed at Taralabalu junction in RT Nagar. The Intelligent Traffic Management System camera at the junction automatically records violations, capturing instances where the rider failed to wear a helmet, among other offenses.
The rider, identified as a middle-aged man presumed to be a relative of the registered owner, seems oblivious to the fact that every transgression is being meticulously documented.
The scooter, registered in 2021 to a woman in Ganganagar, is believed to have changed hands within the family. The police, spurred by a mediaperson's tip, are actively on the lookout for the scooter's owner. Despite efforts, the vehicle was not found at the address provided during its registration.
The Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic, North), Sachin Ghorpade, has urged the public to assist in locating the offender, emphasizing the need for collective responsibility in upholding traffic regulations.
