Bangalore Traffic Fines & Violations

With the increased vehicle traffic on the road, the responsibility of the traffic department also increases. Bangalore is one of the cities with heavy traffic and so the traffic rules are equally strict. Everyone who tries to break the traffic rule should be ready to pay hefty penalties and fines. No two-wheeler rider and pillion rider shall ride without a helmet, seat belts in cars are mandatory, and riding without insurance, RC, or licence is a traffic offence. There are hefty charges for overspending, racing, overloading, triple riding on bikes, etc. So, follow rules and ride safely.
