Delhi: On September 9, everyone believed that the Rajasthani truck driver, who paid a Rs 1.41 lakh fine, would be the highest fine payer under the amended Motor Vehicles Act. However, it seems that the fines are only getting bigger with each passing day.

On September 13, a trucker from Delhi became the person to pay the biggest fine under the new rules. He paid a whopping Rs 2,00,500 for violating a slew of rules.

The man, identified as Ram Kishan, paid the hefty challan amount at Delhi’s Rohini court. Among the many traffic violations, a major one was that he was carrying a load of 43 tonnes in his truck while he had permission for only 25.

This meant that he was carrying an extra 18 tonnes. For each extra tonne, Ram had to shell out Rs 2,000.

Besides this, he broke 10 other traffic rules, some of which included not having a driver’s license and not wearing a seat belt. The truck, bearing a Harayana number plate, was stopped by the Delhi traffic police.

Challan amount to be paid by the driver and an almost equal amount to be paid by the vehicle owner resulted in a total fine of Rs 2,00,500.
