Must know important Laws in India (Part-2): Motor Vehicle Act-

We have often seen that traffic police stop our car by taking out the keys of the car or bike, it sounds very normal, But do you know? But do you know that it is not legally allowed for any traffic policeman to take out the key from the car under the Motor Vehicle Act 1932? If they are imposing a fine on you for any reason, you should pay attention to whether they have a fine book with them. Yes, the fine book should be present during the issuance of a traffic ticket. Here, I would like to tell you one thing: if you are being stopped, please refrain from attempting to escape. If you do so, the inspectors or higher-ranking officers present there can take note of your vehicle's details and pursue appropriate action. Yes, it is important to follow the instructions of traffic police officers and cooperate with them. It is not advisable to attempt to escape or resist the authorities. Doing so can lead to further consequences such as the confiscation of your vehicle's license or driving license. If the keys of your car are forcefully taken or if your documents are being confiscated, you can take the following actions:



1. Stay calm: It is important to remain calm and composed during such situations. Avoid getting into any arguments or confrontations with the police officer.



2. Ask for identification: Politely ask the police officer to identify themselves by showing their official identification card or badge. Make a note of their name and badge number for future reference.



3. Know your rights: Familiarize yourself with your rights as a citizen. In many countries, traffic police officers do not have the authority to forcefully take away your keys or confiscate your documents without a valid reason.



4. Request a supervisor: If you believe the actions of the police officer are unjustified or illegal, ask for their supervisor to be present at the scene. Explain the situation to the supervisor and seek their intervention.



5. Document the incident: If possible, try to gather evidence of the incident. Use your mobile phone or any other available means to record audio or video footage of the interaction. This can be helpful if you need to file a complaint or escalate the matter later on.



6. Report the incident: After the incident, you can file a complaint with the relevant authorities. Provide them with all the necessary details, including the date, time, location, and names of the officers involved. Be sure to include any evidence you may have gathered.



Remember, it is always recommended to prioritize your safety and follow the instructions of law enforcement officers.
