Pune: The Pune City Traffic Police have launched a campaign against riders who violate Section 198(47) of the Motor Vehicle Act. They are specifically targeting those who alter motorbike silencers, namely those on Royal Enfield Bullets. The widespread usage of modified silencers is not only against the law but also increases noise pollution during the day in many parts of the city. The Pune City Traffic Police have initiated a special effort to address and punish motorcycle riders who have modified silencers throughout the entire city in response to this problem.

The caption said, “The Pune City Traffic Branch has taken action against a total of 571 motor cycles using modified silencers in the last 2 days. Citizens are requested to inform Pune City Traffic Police WhatsApp number 8087240400 if anyone is found riding a motorcycle with such a silencer.”
