A traffic ticket is one of the most common forms of legal action that can be filed against a driver who is suspected of violating a traffic law.
If you have been accused of driving while intoxicated or with a blood alcohol content above the legal limit, then you may be able to get a traffic violation ticket.
However, in most cases, it will take years of legal battles and a lot of money to secure a legal settlement.
If the amount is much higher than what you would expect, then the court can also impose a penalty.
If your traffic violation is a misdemeanor, the court may impose a fine of Rs. 500,000 or up to three months imprisonment.
For an adult, the fine can be up to Rs. 1 lakh or up in the case of minor, or Rs. 25,000 for a family of three.
A court can, however, issue a warning notice, if it finds that the accused is not complying with the traffic law, and issue a fine up to the statutory maximum of Rs 50,000.
In most cases the amount of fines you get in court is a matter of degree.
Traffic ticket lawyer at one of Delhi’s traffic courts in Rajasthan said that in most traffic cases, a traffic court can issue a traffic warning notice at any stage in the proceedings.
The court can even issue a non-binding order, if the accused refuses to pay the fine.
The traffic law enforcement officer (SLO) may also issue a notice to pay for a traffic offence, if he or she believes that the traffic violation was committed by the accused, or if the traffic department fails to report the traffic infraction.
The driver is then required to pay a fine amounting to Rs 50 lakh or Rs 25,500 per day, whichever is greater.
A traffic violation that is a civil offence, such as speeding, is not subject to the traffic fines.
For this reason, if you are facing a traffic infractions case in a traffic courts, then it is advisable to contact a traffic attorney.
However you will have to pay up front for the traffic tickets.
You can also consult a traffic police officer for advice on the best traffic law for the Delhi traffic, in case you are not able to pay, or for advice if you need to pay money.
