Traffic police in Delhi are sending e-challans with the help of Traffic Cameras to everyone who are found violating traffic rules.While this is indeed a great step forward to minimize traffic violations, but sending an e-challan for minor violations is something absurd and looks like the government wants to score bigtime to gather deficit revenue which they missed out during the lockdown. They did the same thing by hiking the alcohol prices by 70% for a month or two.

Where were these cameras pre lockdown ? No offence to the government and I do admire the step they have taken, but what I recommend is that if the offence is new and it is committed for the first time, they should give a warning instead of sending a challan straight away. And if the same offence is done again then send a penalty and subsequent penalties can be sent there after for that offence.

It does not help the majority of population because we all are still struggling to get back on our feet after a massive lockdown, a lot of them are still unemployed/reduced pay or there business is still struggling.

Sign this petition so we start getting warnings for offence committed first time, this will also help everyone as it will raise awareness about traffic rules and people will be more careful the next time once they receive a warning.
