To begin with, there are issues like slow-moving traffic, speed-breakers, potholes, and rumble strips at every turn. Then there is the big issue of challans. Many motorists, especially the bike owners, feel they are unduly fined, and for some bike owners, challans are irksome as they get fined multiple times on the same day for the same violation.


While the commuters say they are fined mostly to meet the targets of traffic police, the traffic police on their side assure that the challan issuing process has been revamped and add that they are now focusing on accident-prone areas. The discount on clearing traffic challans is just the beginning, says AV Ranganathan, joint commissioner Traffic, Hyderabad City Police.


Motorists say they get faulty challans for violations like jumping red signal, crossing stop line, free left, etc., even when there are no clear markings. One motorist says he got a challan when he crossed the line when the signal was orange. Another says most junctions don’t have clear markings. And cops sit or stand and click pictures, though they are not visible to the public. Also, most of them say they are not aware of challans till the police stop them.


So, now, the traffic police have started taking steps to mitigate the issue. No more than 400 challans will be issued per day under any traffic police station. Earlier, most challans were issued for bike owners for not wearing helmets; now, they intend to focus on all motorists.


Also, the traffic cops will no longer hide but will be visible to the public, and the challans will be examined before a fine is imposed. The penalty for speeding, wrong side driving, etc., was the same for all vehicles in all areas; now, it has been changed on the basis of vehicle, location, and other parameters.
