The city is getting busier, and there are a lot of complaints with the traffic police regarding honking on the main roads. In some instances, it has become a public nuisance as the honks can lead to accidents. Following such incidents, the Hyderabad Traffic Police has launched a special drive to nab those using prohibited varieties of horns.


Since Tuesday night, over 200 motorists were fined by the Traffic police for using prohibited air or multi-toned horns, with the devices being seized too. The traffic police are imposing a fine of Rs 1000 on the violators.


Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic) AV Ranganathan has shared that heavy vehicles like private buses and lorries were also checked, and horns were seized. “Our teams are checking vehicles and on finding multi-toned horns, are removing those and booking cases. The drive will continue,” he says, adding that as per Motor Vehicles Rule 119 of the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, no motor vehicle fitted with any multi-toned horn giving a succession of different notes or with any other sound producing device giving horn, shrill, loud or alarming noise unduly.


In fact, the Indian Motor Vehicle Act, 1988, Section 52, bars alteration in horns.
