How the new Motor Vehicles Act puts us on the road to safety
NEW DELHI: In recent times, rarely would there have been changes in legislation touching each and every stage of life. Whether it is about making it mandatory for a child younger than four years, to wear a helmet, or making guardians responsible for a juvenile driving a vehicle, or increasing penalties manifold for offences such as drunk and dangerous driving, over-speeding, driving without permit, the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act, 2019 will impact everyone.
As far as road safety is concerned, discipline is imperative. If implemented in spirit, the law can change road habits of all by not only imposing stiffer penalties for breaking rules, but also trying to inculcate a sense of responsibility among the citizens to abide by them.
