Traffic Fines in Haryana

Traffic fines in Haryana play a pivotal role in maintaining safety and order for both pedestrians and motorists. The state employs an organised system where penalties are introduced and implemented across the board by RTOs and traffic authorities.

Anyone caught violating traffic rules in Haryana will be fined or issued an E-Challan by traffic authorities. So, what are the traffic rules in Haryana and the fines associated with them? Read on to find out!

New Traffic Rules in Haryana

Here are some general traffic rules to be followed by all vehicle owners in Haryana before we move on to vehicle-specific rules:

Keep Left: Always drive on the left side of the road, especially if there are no dividers or lanes. Allow other vehicles driving in the opposite direction to pass by your right.

When making turns, keep your left turns tight/sharp (drive as close as you can to the left-hand side of the road you are entering) and your right turns long/wide (drive towards the centre of the road you are entering, arriving towards the left side).

Right Side Overtaking: Always overtake other vehicles driving in the same direction from their right. You can overtake from the left/either side if you are driving in the centre lane. Always use your indicators when overtaking and avoid doing so on narrow roads to ensure safety.

Follow Traffic Signals: Do not jump red lights and give pedestrians the right of way at uncontrolled pedestrian crossings. You must also adhere to stop signs and only take U-turns in areas where it is permissible.

No Drinking and Driving: Driving your vehicle while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs can lead to severe road accidents. If caught, you will be issued a drink and drive fine in Haryana by the traffic police. Moreover, subsequent offences can also result in imprisonment.

No Parking in Prohibited Zones: Avoid parking your vehicle in no parking zones, busy corners, in the middle of the road or in any place that could disrupt the flow of traffic. This can result in your vehicle getting towed or issued a no-parking fine in Haryana, so avoid doing this.

Give Way To Emergency Vehicles: Always give way to emergency vehicles like ambulances and fire trucks by immediately drawing to the side of the road once you hear their sirens. Not doing so is considered a serious offence and can result in fines or even imprisonment.

Do Not Overspeed: Always drive within the prescribed speed limit, especially when driving on highways or in bad weather conditions. This also includes rash driving – do not drive in a manner that is considered a danger to the public.

Any abrupt breaks when driving at high speeds can cause your vehicle to skid, hydroplane (during rain) or lose control of your vehicle, which can be dangerous for you and other motorists.

New Four-Wheeler RTO Rules in Haryana

Learner Driving Without Displaying L Plates: Learner's licence holders are only permitted to drive their vehicles under the supervision of a driving instructor or permanent licence holder and must display a red L-symbol/sticker on their vehicle.

Both parties must be able to present their licence when pulled over, or they will be subject to a without-licence fine in Haryana.

Always Wear Seat Belts: The driver and all other passengers must wear a seat belt when the car is in motion. Children under 14 must also be secured with a seat belt, harness or a child restraint system secured to the car's seat.

No Overloading: You must avoid overloading your vehicle past the permissible limit, i.e., your vehicle must pass a weighing test from an officer of the Motor Vehicles Department. This is in the case of transport/commercial goods vehicles.

New Two-Wheeler RTO Rules in Haryana

Wear Helmets: Both the driver and pillion rider must be wearing helmets when riding a two-wheeler vehicle (bikes, scooters, mopeds, etc.). Failure from either party to do so can result in a fine for not wearing a helmet in Haryana.

Only One Pillion Rider: You can not have more than one passenger/pillion rider in addition to yourself on your bike, i,e., no triples riding on your bike. The pillion rider must also be seated on a proper seat securely fixed to the bike behind the driver's seat.

Carry ID and Mandatory Documentation: Always carry a valid driver's licence and other important documents related to your bike, like your two-wheeler insurance, PUC certificate and bike registration (RC).
