Thane, a bustling city in Maharashtra, is known for its vibrant energy and lively people. However, with the limitation of space and increased traffic on the roads, traffic management has become extremely difficult.

With the ever-growing traffic in the city, the inconvenience of improper parking has led the city traffic police to impose stringent Thane RTO parking rules.

The primary intent is to encourage people to park correctly to avoid the wrong parking fine in Thane and comply with the necessary traffic rules. This will help keep the traffic in control and also resolve issues regarding traffic congestion and, in some cases, accidents.

Other Important Traffic Rules for Two-Wheeler Riders

Along with the parking rules, there are many other traffic rules and regulations that are mandatory for two-wheelers. The list includes:

No triple-riding - Having more than one pillion rider on the bike.

Wearing a Helmet - The rider and the pillion rider are both required to wear a helmet when on the two-wheeler.

Traffic Lights - Follow the traffic lights strictly to avoid penalties.

Speed Limits - There are specific speed limits for two-wheelers on different roads and areas. Follow them properly to avoid accidents and fines.

Valid Insurance - A mandatory document to have with you at all times is valid third-party bike insurance. Without it, you are not permitted to ride in Thane or elsewhere in India.

Correct Vehicle Documentation - Other than insurance documents, you must have your driving licence, vehicle registration certificate, pollution under control certificate, and fitness certificate.

Importance of Having a Valid Four or Two-Wheeler Insurance

Other than the different parking traffic rules, another mandatory traffic rule under the Motor Vehicles Act 1988 is to have valid third-party insurance at all times while driving any vehicle in Thane. Third-party insurance protects you against damages caused to any third party using your vehicle.

However, it does not extend any coverage for your vehicle. To protect your car or bike from unexpected damage and loss, investing in comprehensive two-wheeler insurance or four-wheeler insurance is highly recommended.

With a car or bike insurance plan from Tata AIG, you can benefit from coverage for accidental damage, flood damage, or any other natural or man-made disaster-led damage.

We understand the need for maximum convenience and thus offer a user-friendly website to buy, renew, and customise your car and bike insurance online in just a few steps.

Conclusion

With the increasing number of cars and bikes in Thane, it has become important to follow all the traffic rules and regulations for personal safety as well as the safety of other vehicles and pedestrians.

Parking in prohibited areas or wrong parking can cause traffic congestion and accidents. Therefore, to be aware and updated with the general traffic rules and the rules related to parking is necessary.
