Section 187 MV Act

With the number of vehicles running on the Indian roads on a daily basis, mishaps are bound to happen. More than often, most road accidents are due to negligence when driving or failing to comply with traffic safety regulations.

To tackle this issue, the Government of India has made amendments to the Motor Vehicles Act. The New Motor Vehicle Act, 2019, is more stringent and imposed heavy punishment on those violating it. In this article, we are discussing Section 187 of the Motor Vehicles Act.

What is Section 187 of the Motor Vehicles Act?

Section 187 of the MV Act states the punishment for offences relating to an accident. So, for those failing to comply with the provisions of –

  1. Under sub-section 133 r/w Section 187: The driver or conductor of the motor vehicle is accused of an offence under the MV Act, and the owner of the vehicle does not cooperate with the police officer in authority to provide details (such as name and address) of the accused, then he will be punished under this section.

  2. Under sub-section 134 r/w Section 187: When someone is injured, or any third-party property is damaged in a motor vehicle accident, the driver or the person in charge of the vehicle is punishable if they –

  1. Do not provide medical aid to the victim of the accident.

  2. Do not provide details of the accident on demand by a police officer or report the incident at the nearest police station.

  3. Do not provide details of the accident to the insurer.

Now that you know what Section 187 of the Motor Vehicles Act is, let us proceed to the punishment under it.

Punishments Under Section 187 MV Act

If you fail to comply with Section 192 of the MV Act, then you will have to face the following punishment.

  • For sub-section 133 r/w Section 187: A penalty of up to INR 500 and/or imprisonment for three months for the first offence. A penalty of up to INR 1000 and/or imprisonment for six months for a subsequent offence.

  • For sub-section 134 r/w Section 187: A penalty of INR 500 and/or imprisonment for three months for the first offence. A penalty of up to INR 1000 and/or imprisonment for six months for a subsequent offence.

The Bottom Line

Complying with the traffic safety rules is vital for the safety of yourself as well as others on the road. In case of an accident, it is necessary that you inform the nearest police station and your insurer. That way, if your vehicle has suffered any damage, the insurer will investigate the situation and compensate you for the loss incurred.

However, if you are found guilty under the Motor Vehicles Act, then not only you have to pay the fines and face imprisonment, but the insurer will not compensate the loss incurred. The damage expenses will have to be borne from your pocket.
