Furthermore truck drivers drive wearing lungis and vests as they take up long distance journeys and in order to keep themselves comfortable, truck drivers prefer to wear Lungis and vests. Further Uttar Pradesh Traffic Police are putting challans to truck drivers whoever is caught with wearing Lungis and apparently this has shocked many and a few even questioned whether this is actually part of the new Motor Vehicle Act.

Moreover issuing a clarification on this UP's Transport Additional Commissioner said, as per the 1939 Motor Vehicle Act, truck drivers should wear proper outfits while driving, if not they will be fined. Presently with the new Act (2019), the penalty has increased to Rs 2000 and the commissioner also added that the drivers should wear shoes and anyone who doesn't follow none of the measures, will get a challan. Further as this new Motor Vehicle Act 2019 is in its initial stages, they are said to be thinking of protesting on a larger stage such that this norms gets changed.
