UP tightens Motor Vehicles Act to curb accidents by minors

In an attempt to curtail accidents caused by minors, the UP government has decided to strictly implement the provision of three-year imprisonment and a fine of Rs 25,000, on parents or vehicle owners who allow minors to drive their vehicles.

Following the recent instructions issued by Transport Commissioner Chandrabhushan Singh, a campaign was launched to spread awareness about the same in government secondary schools in collaboration with the Transport Department. Also, students will be informed about road safety through various mediums.

State Secondary Education Director Mahendra Dev, in a letter issued to all the district school inspectors of the state on Tuesday, mentioned the order given by the transport commissioner on December 27.

It has been said in the letter that the transport commissioner has directed all divisional transport officers and assistant divisional officers to prevent accidents caused by driving of vehicles by minors.

According to the letter, under Section 199 (A) of the Motor Vehicles Amendment Act 2019, a provision has been made that in a motor vehicle-related offense committed by a juvenile, only his guardian or the owner of the vehicle will be considered guilty and punished. Under this, the guardian or the owner of the vehicle can be punished with an imprisonment of three years and a fine of Rs 25,000.

According to sources of the Transport Department, this provision will be implemented more strictly now.
