Traffic fines have gone up manifold. This has become the recent trending topic of discussion on social media. Now the Congress wants the government to improve infrastructure before implementing the amendments to the MV act.

 In the new amendments, fines have been increased manifold. The Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkar has said that this was done to reduce the traffic chaos and fatalities in roads. The chief minister Pramod Sawant on Sunday said that he would defer the implementation till December. However, the Leader of opposition, Digamber Kamat is very categorical in saying that he is not even commenting on the amendments. But just wants infrastructure including sign-ages to be in place before the act is enforced on the roads.     

The government has notified the new type sucurity number plates for the vehicles in the state of Goa. This issue has been on the radar for so many years now. However, there have been allegations of corruption on the issue resulting in some tenders being cancelled earlier.
