Penalties Mr. BJ Laloo, Shillong’s SP(Traffic) could have levied on Manavon Massar

Mr. Bashan J Laloo, SP(Traffic) of Shillong needs a better press agent. Rather than defend his ‘subduing’ action which resulted in fractured hand of Manavon Massar, Mr. Laloo should go back to his textbooks. Even some of those who want to balance the story of a ‘Musician with Broken Fingers’, need to know that no traffic offence or for that matter any offence allows the Police to inflict violence on any person. We will repeat for you balanced heads – no traffic offence or for that matter any offence allows the Police to inflict violence on any person. Even Manavon Massar agrees that he had violated traffic laws by overtaking and he should have been punished accordingly. But Mr. B J Laloo reads some other rule book where sticks do the work rather than fines. So to help Mr. BJL (and you loyal readers), we provide you with a short guide to punishments and fines for traffic violations.

Driving under the influence of an intoxicating substance is a serious crime. Chances of damage and injuries increase exponentially when a driver is not alert of his/her surroundings while driving. It is dangerous not only for the driver but also to co-passengers and others present on the road. Thus, the fine amount depends on the level of intoxicating substance present in the blood. Drinking alcohol and driving a vehicle are common occurrences, here is the list of traffic police fines for the same:

Alcohol LevelTraffic Fines and penalties and Jail

60 to 150 mg1 year of imprisonment and/or a fine of Rs.4000. Repeated offence leads to 3 years of imprisonment and/or a fine of Rs.8000.
150 mg or aboveOne-time offender is charged Rs. 5000 along with 2 years of imprisonment. If the offence is repeated within 3 years the punishment is Rs.10000 fine plus 4 years of imprisonment.
