Default Re: Let's know the law (Motor Vehicles Act)

Can anyone tell me what does the new amendment say about the following :
1) What is the fine amount for riding on the wrong side of the road ?
2) What is the fine amount for jumping the traffic signals ?

And finally, What does the amendment say about 'abolishing of permit raj' as promised by Arun Jaitley in the 2016 budget ?

The amendment is very specific on this. Section 184 would be the applicable section here. The amendment reads;
In section 184 of the principal Act,
(i) after the words "dangerous to the public", the words " or which causes a
sense of alarm or distress to the occupants of the vehicle, other road users, and
persons near roads," shall be inserted;
(ii) for the words "which may extend to six months or with fine which may extend to one thousand rupees", the words "which may extend to one year but shall not be less than six months or with fine which shall not be less than one thousand rupees but may extend to five thousand rupees, or with both" shall be substituted;
(iii) for the words "which may extend to two thousand rupees", the words " of ten thousand rupees" shall be substituted;
(iv) the following Explanation shall be inserted, namely:
"Explanation. For the purpose of this section,
(a) jumping a red light;
(b) violating a stop sign;
(c) use of handheld communications devices while driving;
(d) passing or overtaking other vehicles in a manner contrary to law;
(e) driving against the authorised flow of traffic; or
(f) driving in any manner that falls far below what would be expected
of a competent and careful driver and where it would be obvious to a
competent and careful driver that driving in that manner would be
dangerous.".
shall amount to driving in such manner which is dangerous to public.

Sec 184 applies here as well.
