With the increasing use of social media platforms to promote viral videos, people often take extreme steps to become popular. Here is a bride from Prayagraj, who was riding on the bonnet of the Tata Safari Storme. Police sent a challan to the car owner after the video became viral on the Internet.
The viral video shows the bride in her wedding dress sitting on the bonnet of the Tata Safari Storme. She had her dress spread across the bonnet of the SUV. We can see a camera person walking in front of the car and recording a video.
It all happened on a public road causing restrictions to vehicular movement and stalling traffic. Others on the road also slowed down to check what is happening which further slowed down the traffic.

After the video became viral, police issued a challan of Rs 15,500 to the owner of the car for various reasons. A few of the reasons could have been restricting the traffic and also putting own life and the lives of others in danger. However, the cops have not clearly stated under which sections they have booked the lady.
In another instance, a lady from Adyodhya did something similar on Maruti Suzuki Dzire. The girl sat on the bonnet of the car while it was speeding through a single-lane highway. While we can see another girl peeping out of the window of the car. According to the information, the police even served them with a challan worth Rs 18,000.
Challans based on video evidence
In most metropolitan cities, there is now a comprehensive CCTV network that is closely monitored by a team of police personnel. These cameras help in identifying traffic violations by tracking vehicle registration numbers, and corresponding challans are issued accordingly. However, it is worth noting that online challans can sometimes be incorrect due to faulty number plates. In such cases, individuals have the option to challenge these wrong challans through the redressal portal of the traffic police.
In recent times, the government and authorities have taken steps to increase the amount of fines for traffic violations. The objective behind this increase is to deter people from breaking traffic rules and to make the roads safer for everyone.
India faces one of the highest numbers of road accidents in the world, with a particularly high ratio of fatal accidents. Many lives are lost due to reckless driving and disregard for traffic rules. The implementation of surveillance systems aims to reduce the number of individuals engaging in dangerous maneuvers on the roads. Additionally, the police have initiated a crackdown on vehicles that lack rearview mirrors or fail to use them properly. In Hyderabad, for instance, the police have begun issuing challans to two-wheeler owners who do not have mirrors installed. Similar measures are expected to be implemented by police in other cities in the near future.
