Naga Chaitanya to Manchu Manoj: Hyderabad Police fine 10 Tollywood celebrities

Hyderabad Traffic Police have fined at least ten Tollywood actors and directors for using tinted glasses on their vehicles.

On Monday, actor Naga Chaitanya was fined Rs 700 for having tinted glasses. For the last month, Jr NTR, Allu Arjun, Manchu Manoj, Kalyan Ram, and Director Trivikram Srinivas, have been fined by the Hyderabad Traffic Police for using black tint on car windows.

On March 20, Hyderabad traffic police started a special drive against vehicles with illegal number plates.

A total of 38,522 cases of improper and irregular number plates have been registered since then. So far, 9583 cases have been booked. On the other hand. 10,565 cases have been registered for having a tinted glass.

According to a Supreme Court Order, any material obstructing visibility - such as black screens, sun shades, or curtains-- is illegal. "No exemption shall be granted to anybody except for people falling under security categorization of Z and Z+," the order said.

In addition, cops are also stopping vehicles using stickers inscribed with 'Police', 'Government Vehicle', 'Corporator', 'Press', 'Army', 'MLA', 'MP', which are all violations of sections 50, 51, and 52 of the Motor Vehicle Rules. As part of the special drive, 2904 stickers have been removed.

Hyderabad Traffic Police also clarified that no film of any VLT (Visual Light Transmission) is permitted on the windscreen and the window glasses.

"Car decor and accessory shop owners will once be called and warned about illegally fixing black films. Strict action will be taken against such shops as per City Police Act provisions. RTC buses, private and tourist buses, school buses with such films pasted on their window screens are instructed to get them removed immediately" police said.

Hyderabad Traffic Police has also decided to go tough against motorists using improper/irregular number plates, and black tinted glass on four-wheelers.

Hyderabad Traffic department found that several vehicles do not follow the guidelines listed under the Motor Vehicles Act, especially regarding number plates. "In some cases, the size of the number plate is not as per the prescribed rules. Many vehicle owners have tampered with the numbers and alphabets to avoid detection by Traffic Police and escape challans," police said.
