What are the basic road safety rules in Andhra Pradesh?
Measures on Road Traffic injury prevention
Preventing Road Traffic Injuries Measures
The Use of Helmets
- Head injuries are the leading cause of death among two-wheeler riders, and they may usually be avoided by wearing a helmet. Helmets provide excellent protection for the rider against such injuries. Head injuries are common among moped and motorcycle riders in most developed countries. According to experts, riders who did not wear helmets were three times more likely to get brain injuries than those who did. Properly padded helmets are a safe option for two-wheeler riders in India. The government and other organizations have mandated the use of helmets.
The use of seat belts
- Though overspending is not permitted, it has been discovered that when a person wears a seat belt, they are safer in the event of an accident than those who do not. Traffic laws also require seat belts. It reduces the cause of mortality by 40%.
Alcohol limitations in driving are enforced or altogether prohibited
- Alcohol drinking by vehicle drivers is one of the leading causes of accidents, fatalities, and serious injuries. The widespread use of random breath testing achieves maximum compliance with loss. The most effective instruments are breath testing equipment that provides objective evidence of blood alcohol levels.
Excessive speed and speed limits
- The faster drivers travel, the less time they have to stop and escape a collision. When an accident occurs, the higher the speed, the more intense the impact. Vulnerable road users and other motor vehicles are particularly susceptible to injury from speeding motor vehicles. Speed limits that road users believe to be realistic and self-enforcing have the best likelihood of being enforced. Drivers that exceed speed restrictions might be caught by speed cameras or radar. According to a recent study of data from multiple countries, devices that automatically detect and stop drivers cut road deaths and serious injuries by 14%. It has been discovered that publicizing the presence of speed cameras or radars increases compliance with speed laws and significantly reduces the occurrence of crashes and injuries.
Improving care before patients arrive at a hospital
- According to a study that compared road traffic mortality in various nations, the vast majority of deaths in poor and middle-income countries occur before reaching the hospital. There are limited emergency services near the scene of road crashes on national, state, and other roadways. Bystanders, relatives, or other road users rescue injured people and transfer them to a hospital.
Some other safety rules to prevent Hyderabad traffic challan
Driving A Vehicle Without A License:
- One of the most prevalent violations we see drivers commit is driving without a license. This crime is punishable under MV Act 181 with a fine of up to INR 500/- for primary vehicles such as two, three, four, and six-wheelers.
Driving a Vehicle Without Registration:
- A vehicle's registration is crucial since it provides the RTO with all the vehicle's details and ownership. This violation is covered under MV Act 192. (1). The fine for a two, three, four, or six-wheeler is INR 2000/-.
- Driving Without Insurance:
- Car insurance is necessary since it covers your expenses in vehicle damage or injuries to other drivers, passengers, or pedestrians. Driving without insurance is punishable by a fine of up to INR 1000/- for two, three, four, and six-wheelers.
- Driving Without A Permit:
- If you have a learner's or provisional license, you must obtain a driving permit—this aids in maintaining a record for the State's RTO. Failure to do so will result in a Court or an RTA challan.
- Underage Driving:
- It is vital to manage underage driving since minors lack driving awareness and are more likely to be involved in an accident. Minor drivers would be fined Rs 500/- for two, three, four, and six-wheelers under MV Act 181.
Driving Without A PUC Certificate:
- To reduce pollution, it is now required to have your vehicle checked with a recognized PUC authority and obtain a PUC certificate. Failure to do so may result in a fine of up to INR 1000/- from the Hyderabad Traffic Police.

Under the MV Act 184, INR 1000 will be charged a challan to discourage such behaviour. A judicial case will also be filed in this regard.
Driving on Footpaths:

- Driving sides vary from country to country. We drive on the left side of the road in India. Failure to do so may result in a challan of INR 1100 for any car.
Riding a Motorcycle/Bike with Three Individuals:
- Motorcycles and bikes are not designed to transport three people. A motorcycle makes the driver unbalanced, which might lead to an accident. Under the M.V.Act 128/177, 184, the RTO in Hyderabad has a challan of INR 1200.
- In the last year alone, there were 136 deaths and 1313 injuries in Hyderabad due to traffic accidents. There were around 50 cases involving only two-wheelers.

Using mobile phones while driving a vehicle:
- Most accidents occur because of the lack of concentration on the road by drivers. Mobile phones are a significant reason for that. Texting/talking/clicking photos all amount to distractions. Under section M.V.Act 184(a), a maximum penalty of INR 1000 can be issued to the driver.
Other safety precautions for two-wheeler drivers in Andhra Pradesh include:
Wear approved safety helmets: The driver and the pillion rider must wear appropriate safety helmets to protect themselves from severe head injuries. It is also a good idea to wear knee and elbow protectors.
Only one pillion rider: On a two-wheeler, only one pillion passenger is permitted to ride behind the driver. Motorcyclists and scooter drivers are not allowed to transport more than one passenger. Tripling on a two-wheeler is an offence in the eyes of the average person.
