Important traffic awareness to avoid penalty
Point #1 : Recently I was stuck in a traffic signal in Secunderabad area, when I heard an announcement about paying traffic fines online instead of cash payment. As per the announcement, one should ask for eChallan if caught for any traffic offence, without paying fine by cash.
Even if you want to pay by cash, make sure that you are paying under supervision of a senior traffic police inspector only. One can ask traffic police to generate a challan for you and later you can pay the same via online portal. But make sure you follow all rules to avoid paying traffic fines.
Point #2 : If you are using OOR or Outer Ring Road for daily commute or travelling to Airpot, remember that there is a speed limit of 120 km per hour. If you overspeed, you will be fined immediately by the already planted cameras (speed guns) in OOR.
Recently 2 of my friends shared the same experience with me where they have been fined with Rs 1400 (approx) for overspeeding in outer ring road while travelling from Appa junction to Gachibowli.
Remember, this speed guns are now almost everywhere in the city and any kind of overspeeding or breaking of signals will be immediately captured and assigned against your registration number.
