However, since the Motor Vehicles Act 2019 was enforced, several state governments have relaxed the norms for fines, and the Gujarat government has reduced them a lot.
The fine on helmets has been reduced from Rs 1,000 to Rs 500. Driving a bike without a licence used to invite a fine of Rs 5,000, which has been reduced to Rs 2,000.
But residents of Surat still believe that fines are on one level and awareness on another because each year more than 2,50,000 people get killed in road accidents.
