Traffic congestion exists in both the states, Karnataka and Rajasthan. There is traffic everywhere, especially during rush hour. This is because the population is increasing and the road network is insufficient, resulting in congested roads. The government has made several initiatives to address the traffic issue.

Challan penalties are fines for traffic violations. The penalties vary amongst Indian states, including Assam and Rajasthan. Here in this article, we will discuss the same.
Traffic Violations & Penalties
Because traffic infractions vary by state, drivers must know all state and city rules and regulations. The following are the most significant traffic violations and punishments in Assam and Rajasthan
Driving A Vehicle Without Insurance
Driving without insurance leads to serious legal ramifications. Depending on the jurisdiction and severity of the offence, you may face fines, licence suspension, vehicle impoundment, or even imprisonment if you are found driving a vehicle without valid insurance.

Rajasthan: The same offence invites a penalty of Rs. 2000 on the first offence and Rs. 4000 for any subsequent offences.
Using A Mobile Phone While Driving
Distracted driving is a primary cause of accidents and can have serious repercussions. When you use a mobile while driving, your focus is taken away from the road, increasing the danger of a crash, injury, or death. An accident can be caused by a split second of distraction.

Rajasthan: Using a mobile phone while driving attracts a penalty of Rs. 1000 on the first offence and Rs. 10,000 on subsequent offences.
Using A Vehicle Without Registration and Fitness Certificate
Registration and obtaining a Fitness Certificate are not only legal obligations, but they are also critical for road safety. These procedures ensure that your vehicle complies with safety regulations, reducing the likelihood of mechanical problems and accidents.

Rajasthan: The same offence invites a fine of Rs. 500 for the first offence and Rs. 1500 for all such subsequent offences.
Unauthorised/Disqualified Person Driving The Vehicle
Allowing an unauthorised or ineligible driver to operate a vehicle poses serious safety hazards. These people may lack the knowledge, abilities, or legal criteria needed to operate a car safely. This raises the chances of an accident, injury, or damage to property or other people on the road.
Assam: An unauthorised person driving a vehicle attracts a penalty of Rs. 5,000, in case of all offences (first and subsequent).
Rajasthan: The same offence is punishable by a fine of Rs. 10,000 for all offences (first and subsequent).
Triple-riding on two-wheeler
Riding a two-wheeler with three passengers on board increases the risk of an accident or injury. Two-wheelers commonly have seating capacity, footrests, and safety equipment (such as helmets) for two people. A passenger can throw off the vehicle's balance, impede handling, and limit the rider's control.
