Come February, the city denizens will face penalty for violation of lane driving in Chandigarh.
The UT Traffic Police will begin the challaning process for three traffic violations in the city from February 1 onwards.
The violations include violation of lane driving, stopping or parking of vehicles on road side of main carriageways of Madhya Marg, Dakshin Marg and Udyog Path and blocking left turning traffic lane at traffic intersections.
The decision to start traffic enforcement against these three traffic violations in the city with effect from February 2, 2020, was taken at a high-level meeting of senior police officers held recently.
It was also decided in the meeting that the Traffic Police will start a mass awareness to make motorists aware about these three violations.
The Traffic Police is yet to announce the challaning fee for these three violations.
Notably, the Chandigarh Administration had last month decided to impose minimum penalty for various traffic offences under the Motor Vehicle Act, 2019. The Administration had earlier imposed maximum penalty under MVA 2019, which came into effect from September 1.
