Not wearing a helmet will get you challaned, even if you are driving a car!
In an unusual incident in Meerut, a car driver was pulled by traffic police for not wearing a helmet. The cop even registered the Maruti Swift’s car registration number on the challan receipt.
The incident took place on Sunday evening when Shailender Singh, 43, was crossing the Hasanpur area to see a doctor with his 4-year old kid. Traffic police abruptly stopped him and asked for papers. Singh presented the required documents, but the cops kept him engaged. After a heated debate over unnecessary trouble, the cops imposed a fine on him for not wearing a helmet despite knowing that he was not driving a two-wheeler.
The man, later, went to the Superintendent of Police who ordered an enquiry into the incident.
