Hyderabad Traffic Rules And Violations

In India, the financial year 2018-19 witnessed sales of roughly around 2,62,67,783 vehicles, which includes all the two-wheelers, three-wheelers, passenger and commercial vehicles.


For these high numbers, it is not uncommon that many unfortunate events occur on roads. Having a properly functioning system is critical to maintaining law and order on the roads. However, there are still incidents that occur because of an inefficient education of traffic rules and regulations among citizens.


The rules are relatively stricter in metropolitan areas because of the high number of vehicles and complexity. One such city in India in Hyderabad. The State’s Road Transport Authority (RTA) cites Section 200 of the new Act, which now allows the state government to issue a gazette notification for compounding certain offences. Let us look at some traffic police rules and regulations in Hyderabad.


  • Offenses Related to Documents


  1. Driving A Vehicle Without A License: This is one of the most common offenses that we see the drivers commit. This offense comes under the MV Act 181 and the offender can get a penalty of up to INR 500/- for the basic vehicles which include two, three, four & six wheelers.


  1. Driving A Vehicle Without Registration: A vehicle’s registration is an important element as it gives the RTO all the details of the vehicle and its ownership. This offense comes under the MV Act 192 (1). The penalty for two, three, four & Six wheelers is INR 2000/-.


  1. Driving A Vehicle Without Insurance: The reason car insurance is essential is that it covers your expenses if of vehicle damage or injuries to other drivers, passengers, or pedestrians. Driving without insurance can get you a maximum fine of up to INR 1000/- for two, three, four & six wheelers.


  1. Driving Without A Permit: With learners or a provisional license, getting a permit to drive is important. This helps in keeping a record for the State’s RTO. Failing to do so will get you a Court challan or one from RTA.


  1. Under Age Driving: It is critical to control under age driving as teenagers lack the driving sense and they are highly prone to accidents. To discourage such things, under the MV Act 181, it will penalize underage drivers Rs 500/- for two, three, four & six wheelers.


  1. Driving Without A PUC Certificate: To minimize the pollution effects, it has become mandatory to get your vehicle checked with a verified PUC authority and get a PUC certificate. Failing to do so will get you a fine up to an INR 1000/- from the Hyderabad Traffic police.


  • Offenses Related To Driving


  1. Violation of No Entry or One Way: Under Section 144 of the Motor Vehicle Act, the Hyderabad RTO gives a maximum challan of INR 200/- for two, three, four & six wheelers.


  1. To drive a vehicle dangerously at high speed, rash & negligent driving & posing a threat to others: Rash driving and high-speed driving will always lead to fatal accidents to both the driver and passengers. It also risks the lives of others on the road. To discourage such things, challan of INR 1000 will be levied under the MV Act 184(b). A court case will also get registered for the same.


  1. Driving On Footpaths: In 2019, nearly 53 pedestrians were victims of road accidents in Hyderabad. That is why the Hyderabad traffic rules have multiple penalties to increase pedestrian safety on roads. The penalties include RTC Mobile Court OR RTA and fine from INR 50/- to INR 200/-. They book these penalties under the M.V.Act 123(ii).


  1. To Run Away After Committing an Accident: Cases like Hit & Run have severe repercussions, and this involves heavy penalties depending upon the severity of the accident. They will register a case in the court against the accused.


  1. Wrong side Driving: Driving sides differ from country to country. In India, we follow the left side of the road. Failing to follow this will get you a challan of INR 1100 for any vehicle.


  1. Triple Riding on Motorcycle/Bike: Technically, motorcycles and bikes are not for three people travel. A motorcycle causes an imbalance to the driver and can lead to accidents. The Hyderabad’s RTO has a challan of INR 1200 under the M.V.Act 128/177, 184.


  1. Wearing of Helmet: In the last year alone, there were 136 deaths and 1313 injuries because of accidents in Hyderabad. There were around 50 cases involving 2 wheelers alone. Wearing a safety-approved helmet can be the deciding factor of life and death. To encourage the public to wear helmets, Hyderabad traffic rules have challan of INR 200 under the M.V. Act 129/177.


  1. Over Speeding: Not obeying the speed limits has direct repercussions. They give the offender a penalty of INR 1400 under the M.V. Act 183, 184 which is issued by the State’s RTO. An additional amount of INR 1000 is also penalized if it leads to accidents.


  1. Drive a vehicle after consuming intoxicants/substances (narco-drugs): Driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs can lead to fatal accidents. In the first half of 2019, they registered nearly 2900 cases involving drunk driving with Hyderabad traffic police. The M.V.Act 185 penalizes the driver and a court case is also registered for the same.


  1. 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 the distractions. Under section M.V.Act 184(a), a maximum penalty of INR 1000 can be issued on the driver.



These were some primary common offenses that occur on the road. There are other rules and regulations for Hyderabad, which are mentioned in the State’s RTO website. These are important for the safety of all drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. So make sure to follow and oblige the rules set by Hyderabad traffic police to make the roads safer.
