Overtaking the moving vehicle - Traffic Violation

    Dear Seniors,

    Company's Vehicle (Truck mounted crane) while its way back to office from Yard was stopped and impounded by the traffic police due to violation of traffic rule.

    The incident had occurred at flyover, as our vehicle was moving behind a heavily loaded vehicle, which was unable to move up smoothly.

    Our driver attempts to overtake the front vehicle from the right hand side, successfully, and after 500 to 600 meters away the traffic police had stopped the vehicle and due to violation of overtaking, they challaned and impounded our vehicle at Punjabi Bagh, Delhi.

    The incident occurred on 12-09-2010 (Sunday). Myself visited the Traffic Police station and fulfilled the formalities Sunday itself.

    For not obeying the traffic rules by the driver they challaned company as punishment / violation of traffic rule, and impounded the vehicle at Punjabi Bagh, Delhi for compoundable offence.

    A challan was issued to us by ACP (T) and asked us to appear on 13-09-2010 before Metropolitan Magistrate in Rohini Court for penalty, accordingly myself and another staff from Plant Dept. appeared in the court and paid Rs.2,100 as penalty and the vehicle was released on same day.

    And on the same day 13-09-2010 the ACP, Traffic West District, Delhi had issued a show cause notice to us to appear on 24-09-2010 for finalising the matter.

    Violating traffic rules and penalty once imposed, it is normal practice that the vehicle will be impounded for 7 to 30 days by the authorities concerned.

    Can any body share their experience, and help me in drafting the reply for not to impound the vehicle again.

    I have enclosed the ACP notice also.

    Regards,
    Kosh

    Drop Gay Byrne an email, he's most likely as up to date with the Indian rules of the road as he is with the Irish rules.

    Kosh, this is an Irish (based in Ireland, Europe) motors forum. I'm not sure if you'd get much of a response from the users here on the judicial and driving system of India. Perhaps you'd be better off seeking advice from an Indian based website? Good luck anyway :)

    Curious as to how you can about to end up on boards in the first place :)

    Dear Kosh,

    We in Ireland are. Little bearing does you Delhi police problem have on us. Little knowledge of Indian traffic law we have.

    Kind Regards
    Good Sirs & Seniors

    Just tell them you never got the fine show cause notice in the post, and you'll get away with it.

    to be honest, some of the things you see drivers doing on the roads here, theym have little knowledge of irish traffic laws as well.
    Drop Gay Byrne an email, he's most likely as up to date with the Indian rules of the road as he is with the Irish rules.

    maybe he should call joe as well

    Constructive advice only, please.

    Strange. The truck was impounded on the Sunday and you were in court on the Monday, and paid the fine. Truck was released. Why would they impound it again, unless you dint pay the fine.

    Regarding writing up a draft to prevent the truck for being impounded again. I suggest the driver avoids overtaking anything else in the future.

    Also, the receipt from the court showing that the fine be paid should be good enough. Also explain that the truck wouldn't be on the road if the fine hadn't being paid.

    Dear Seniors,

    Well lads, you never know who has worked out that neck of the woods....even on an Irish board.

    Dear Koshisji

    I have drafted a letter which you can use as a base.
    Please put in the name of your director and company address (maybe that is you). As you know, the Police have all the power, so this letter lets them know that, and you are begging not to have the truck impounded.

    Best of luck.

    Last time I drove a truck mounted crane in India, I had no problems with the law. You should probably ask here
