With the summer approaching its peak, many car owners try to save their vehicles from the greenhouse effect by installing black films. Even though black films are banned in India, many actors and celebrities use dark tints on their vehicles. While the policemen mostly ignore such celebrities, this year the traffic police are not sparing anyone including celebrity Allu Arjun.
Hyderabad Police has started special operations to remove the black film and issue challans to all the cars with a black tint. Recently, actor Allu Arjun was caught driving in his Range Rover. The Hyderabad Police stopped his car and removed the black tint from the vehicle.

Hyderabad Police doing a special drive
Hyderabad traffic police conducted a special drive recently to stop such cars. Any vehicle with the sticker of MLA, fake stickers, and black films was stopped. All the car owners of such cars paid hefty fines.
The police stopped the cars with black films and removed them. Also, the police removed any kind of sticker on the car.
Actor Allu Arjun and Kalyan Ram were stopped on different occasions for the challan. Many other prominent celebrities from the city were stopped as well.
Black films are not allowed
The tinted window rule is one of the most flouted rules in India. While the enforcement is quite strict in metropolitan cities like Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai, in many other cities, motorists continue to use tinted windows to save themselves from the sun. It should be noted that any kind of aftermarket tinted window is not allowed in Indian cars. This was done to ensure that the crimes happening inside the vehicle can be spotted by the bystanders easily.
It should be noted that no politician of India, including the Prime Minister of the country, can use such sirens and flashers on their vehicle. Politicians have been issued fines in the past for the same. However, this time, the cops in Patna did not issue any kind of fine for the illegal attachments on the roof of the vehicle. In India, only emergency vehicles like ambulances and official police cars have permission to use sirens and strobes.
Also, it should be noted that under the new MV Act, the police can fine government officials double the official amount set for the general public. This rule will ensure that people who are in an authoritative position do not break the rules and set an example for the common motorists using the public roads.
