Section 183 of the Motor Vehicle Act refers to the punishment and penalties imposed on offenders found guilty of overspeeding in the country. Overspeeding is a cause of big concern as it can lead to accidents and damage to property and/or life.
Guilty parties may need to pay a fine and can also face a prison term. Repeat offenders will be dealt with more severity. In extreme cases, the driving licence can also be seized which will then need to be applied for release in traffic court, by the offender. Therefore, it is important to know the speed limits beforehand and follow the rules.
