Traffic policemen not allowed for misbehaving and taking out of the vehicle key!

SEP 10 (WTN) - Ever since the new Motor Vehicle Act has been implemented in the country, there is a fear among the drivers about it, and then there is confusion elsewhere. It has been observed that since the implementation of the new Motor Vehicle Act, the traffic police have become much more active than before for issuing challan. As you are aware that the challan amount has been increased significantly in violation of traffic rules under the new Motor Vehicle Act, there have been many incidents where there has been a tussle between drivers and traffic police about the challan. After such incidents, the drivers have accused the traffic police of misbehaving.

Many drivers have alleged that ever since the new Motor Vehicle Act has been implemented, traffic policemen have been misbehaving with the drivers in the name of following it. Vehicle drivers allege that policemen start misbehaving with them when they ask the traffic police about the challan, or about the rules. In fact, it has been observed that during the checking of the vehicle and its related documents, the traffic police usually take out the key of the vehicle, or in the event of more disputes they deflate the wheels of the vehicle. But do you know that the traffic police have no right to do so.


For your information, let you know that the Motor Vehicle Act does not give the traffic police the right to remove the key of the vehicle nor to deflate the wheels of the vehicle. There is no such provision in the new Motor Vehicle Act also. At the same time, the traffic police have no right to misbehave, mistreat, assault and abuse the driver.

According to the rules of the Motor Vehicle Act, if the traffic policeman on duty signs you to stop while driving, you will have to stop at his behest. The traffic policeman has the right to ask the driver to show the driving license and all the documents of the vehicle during the check. At the same time, the traffic policeman can issue the challan if the driver does not wear helmet, or if he does not wear seat belt. But during this entire operation, the traffic policeman cannot remove the key of the vehicle, nor can it deflate the wheels of the vehicle. If the traffic policeman does so, the driver has full right to make a video of it.

The driver can complain in writing to the police officials by presenting the it as evidence by making a video of the traffic policeman taking out the key of the vehicle or then deflating the wheels of the vehicle, after which the responsibility of the officers of the departmental to act on it. On the other hand, if the driver's side is correct, but even then the higher authorities do not take any action on the complaint, then the driver can take the matter to the High Court.

For hearing this matter in the High Court, if the driver is living below the poverty line (BPL), women or disabled, then he/she will get free legal aid. If the driver feels that his human rights have been violated, then he can also complain to the Human Rights Commission. If the driver's side proves to be true on hearing of the case in the High Court, then the convicted traffic policeman can be suspended and the high officials, who do not act at the departmental level, can also be questioned in this case.

For your information, let you know that the Motor Vehicle Act does not give right to traffic policemen to assault, abuse, take out the key of the vehicle and deflate the wheels of the vehicle. Under the Motor Vehicle Act, traffic policemen can issue the driver's challan and seize the vehicle if found violating traffic rules. So we recommend that you should follow the traffic rules properly. On the other hand, if you are following the traffic rules properly, but even then the traffic policeman misbehaves with you or then takes out the key of the vehicle, or r deflate the wheels of the vehicle, then you have every right to complain.
