Fine was heard for not wearing a helmet while riding a bike, but have you ever heard of being fined for driving a car without a helmet? Yes! Recently this happened with a woman from Noida and the police imposed a fine of Rs 1000.
On June 27, the Gautam Buddha Nagar traffic police fined a woman for driving a car without a helmet in Hoshiarpur area of Noida. On this, the woman said that no bike is registered in her name, that means she does not have a bike.
The information about this incident came to the fore when the e-challan came to the woman on Friday. The name of this woman is Shailja Chowdhary, who is a resident of Zeta-1, Greater Noida. After this message, the woman got shocked, because the reason for the challan was like this.
Shailja said, “On the evening of July 7, when I was busy with household chores, I got a message from the traffic police on my mobile. would have been violated.”
“However, when I opened the message, my challan had a photo of a bike attached and my car’s registration number was mentioned for riding without a helmet on June 27 at 8.29 p.m.”, said Shailaja. This message took him by surprise.
Shailja told that she was not even driving the vehicle in Hoshiarpur on the date given in the challan. He further said that I do not have any two wheeler, only Hyundai i20 is registered in my name. This is the mistake of the traffic police and they should cancel the challan.
Shailaja further said, “It is written in the challan that I have been asked to visit the traffic control room in Noida Sector 14A before the last date, or legal action will be taken against me. The distance between my house and Sector 14A is 35 km.” “
Shailja Chowdhary says that it is a very difficult task to go 35 km for a crime which he did not commit. Preeti Yadav, DCP Traffic said that the Integrated Traffic Management System automatically reads the registration number of the vehicle.
In such a situation, many times the system reads the registration number wrongly. If the vehicle owners approach the traffic police and the information is found to be false, they will cancel the challan. The complainant can contact the police by visiting the office or by e-mail.
