DELHI HIGH COURT CHALLAN REFUSED TO PLEAD FOR THE WAIVER OF CHALLANS ON DOCTORS
Recently at the Delhi High Court, a doctors’ group refused to appeal to “all corona warriors” for Delhi High Court Challan.
this group includes healthcare staff, for suspending the e-challans provided for two phases of the lock-down of COVID-19.
Delhi Government Additional Standing Counsel Santosh Tripathi said that a bench of Chief Justice D N Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan urged the association to report to the Traffic Police.
on its appeals for guidelines on displaying the speed-limit signs and for the immediate intimation of breach of the violator.
The bench said that the authorities concerned would decide on such a representation as soon as possible.
also practicable in keeping with the laws and regulations.
As a result, the court throws out the plea that all the traffic signals do not work.
or are in auto-blink mode during the first two loading phases.
thus, “the alleged traffic violations are without any justified ground and reason thereof”.
DELHI MEDICAL ASSOCIATION
“The traffic police has engaged in discriminatory practices by targeting the essential service providers.
this is occurring by penalizing them without any application of mind during the lockdown,” said Shashank Deo Sudhi.
DELHI HIGH COURT
The petition demanded the establishment of detailed rules for the showing of speed limits signs apart from the waiver of Delhi High Court Challan.
In addition, it contended that Delhi has roads with several signs displaying differing speed limits from 70 km/h to 50 km/h within a 2 km stretch.
The signs are not visible on certain highways, it claims.
The petition further argues that drivers are sometimes “victims of delayed intimation regarding the violation of traffic rules”
“In this respect, it is in the submission that if the traffic police would have a mechanism.
it is to intimate the owner of the vehicles within 24 hours, so that the alleged violators may be cautious in future in respect of the traffic violation
also, they may not commit the same offenses time and again of similar nature,” the study states.
The police pursue directions for immediate information in electronic mode, preferably within 24 hours.
as motors are normally making aware of this breach when e-challans are giving after one month or two.
