Mahindra Scorpio-N, Thar, Fortuner SEIZED for stunting on public roads [Video]

Creating a ruckus on the public roads using vehicles by some hooligans is a nuisance which we Indians have to deal with quite frequently. While some of such incidents go ignored, some of them do catch the attention of the custodians of law. Here’s one such incident reported from Uttar Pradesh, in which a few youngsters were arrested and their SUVs were seized by the police for creating a nuisance on public roads.

A few youngsters from Amroha, Uttar Pradesh have been arrested by Uttar Pradesh police for breaking road safety laws by driving recklessly on public roads. In a social media post uploaded by one of the youngsters arrested, we can see a bunch of black-coloured SUVs being driven irresponsibly by these youngsters. For this act of stupidity, the police arrested some of the youngsters, while also seizing three of the SUVs from that bunch for breaking road safety laws.

Breaking rules

Mahindra Scorpio-N, Thar, Fortuner SEIZED for stunting on public roads [Video]

The social media post is a video which is a compilation of several clips, and in all of them, the drivers of these SUVs are seen breaking several road laws, putting the lives of common citizens at risk. In one of the clips, a black-coloured Mahindra Thar is seen changing the lanes by crawling over a divider, rather than making a U-turn from a cut between the lanes. Due to its high ground clearance, the Thar manages to climb over the divider, though at the expense of breaking the laws.

In another clip, five black-coloured SUVs, including two Mahindra Thars, a Mahindra Scorpio, a Mahindra Scorpio-N and a Toyota Fortuner are seen blocking the entire width of the road at one point in time, while marching ahead on the road. The SUVs on the corners of this bunch are also seen driving over the footpaths on either side of the road, thus putting the lives of citizens walking over the footpaths. The next clip shows all the SUVs marching ahead in a single line with their right-side tyres over the footpath, while in another clip, all the SUVs are being driven in the middle of the two lanes, thus blocking the motion of vehicles in both lanes.

Numbers traced

As soon as the video went viral on social media, it caught the attention of many, including that of the Uttar Pradesh Police. After tracing the details of the owners of these SUVs from their registration plates visible in the video, the Police nabbed the owners of three of the SUVs from the video and also took their vehicles in the custody.

Most metropolitan cities now have a network of CCTV that is closely monitored by a team of police personnel. The cops issue challan based on the violation by tracking the registration number. However, many online challans are wrong due to faulty number plates.

Wrong challans can be challenged through the redressal portal of the traffic police. In recent times, the government and the authorities have worked to increase the challan amount. The increase in the fines is to reduce the number of violations and to make the roads safer.
