Furthermore penalties for riders not wearing a helmet and seat belt was both reduced to Rs 500 from Rs 1000 and the fine for driving without a license was reduced from Rs 5000 to Rs 1000 for two-wheelers and three-wheelers and Rs 2000 for 4-wheelers. Reportedly while there were a number of fines reduced in the notification issued by the Transport Department in the state, the fines for crimes like over speeding, drunken driving and racing remained unchanged. 

Moreover the fine for over speeding (Rs 1000 to Rs 2000) also remains unchanged. Perhaps the fines for racing and trials of speed under section 189 of the MV Act was retained at Rs 5000 and there was also no revised fines specified under Section 185 of the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act, which lays down a penalty of Rs 10,000 for riders caught driving under the influence of alcohol and the fine for driving without an insurance was reduced from Rs 2000 to Rs 1000 for two-wheelers. The same fine will be Rs 2000 for 4-wheelers and Rs 4000 for heavy goods vehicles.
