Now speeding penalty can be deducted from fastag, Bangalore police said this big thing
The Bangalore-Mysore Expressway has been in constant discussion ever since it opened. Now Bangalore Police is going to use a new method to deal with speeding violators on this expressway. Police is planning to deduct challan directly from FASTag.
Driving at a speed of more than 100 km is prohibited on this six-lane expressway and the police challans such people. However, many people do not pay the challan online and in this case the police can directly deduct the money from the FASTag account of the offender.
This way the penalty collection will be streamlined and it will promote good driving behaviour. Bangalore Police has proposed this plan to deal with the increasing number of accidents on this expressway. Presently you have to pay the challan through online mode.
Currently, the fine given from FASTag goes to the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI). However, the police is preparing to divert this fine to the government coffers. However, no concrete steps have been taken so far.
Now NHAI has been asked about this process. If this becomes possible, then the project can be implemented soon, thus controlling speed violators on the Bangalore-Mysore Expressway.
It may make the job easier for the police but breaking the speed limit can be very dangerous. FASTag is currently mandatory, where all new cars come with FASTag. Most of the people have got it installed on old cars.
This way the work of manual challaning by the police will end, and it will work to reduce traffic congestion and improve safety on the road. At the same time, because of this, the drivers will drive carefully and in the speed limit on the expressway.
With the help of FASTag, a lot of hard work will be reduced and it will not be used for toll collection. The utility of Fastag will increase further. However, cutting challans from FASTag is a threat to the safety of common users, because the vehicle owner’s information has to be given.
