In India, there is a law against road blocking


Introduction-Road blocking

Since everyone has the freedom to peacefully practice their fundamental rights, this does not imply that they have the unrestricted right to Road blocking.

the roads that cause a significant amount of inconvenience to those who share the path with them.

Whatever the reason for the roadblock, there can be no excuse for it.


It is past time for a law that makes it illegal for someone to engage in any activity.

An activity that causes a blockage of highways, rail lines, or any other routes can cause a significant amount of inconvenience to others.

The Shaheen Bagh incident, in which the routes connecting Delhi and Noida were blocked for more than 50 days by protestors from Shaheen Bagh.

Citizenship Amendment Act

those protestors were protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act.


This brings up the question of why they even permit to engage in such action by such means by the central government.

Courts, on the other hand, play an important part. The question of the court’s silence during the Shaheen Bagh incident is raised yet again. The Supreme Court, the country’s highest court, also refused to order anything related to the removal of the blockade.

When the Court agreed to respond, the bench headed by justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Aniruddha Bose, and Krishna Murari acknowledge the right to peaceful assembly against the legislation.

it also made it clear that public ways and public spaces could not occupy indefinitely.


As a result, a decision appears to be focused on disputed evidence.

the demonstrators have accuses the police of exacerbating the traffic situation by arbitrarily cutting off approach roads.

it has led the bench to deprive people of one of their most prized constitutional rights.

The rights guaranteed by Articles 19(1)(a) and (b) – freedom of speech and peaceful assembly.

It can only limit on the basis of public order, as the bench acknowledges.

It is important to have a look at the important traffic laws that exist in India. The second-largest road network in the world that accounts for at least 10% of the worldwide road facilities is in India.

Motor Vehicles Act 1988

The legislation which governs the traffic on road is the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 which is passed by the parliament.

Also, it came into force on 1st July 1989, and it applies to the whole of India.

Although such laws have been in place in India since 1914, there are still instances of accidents and road blocking.

Several groundbreaking decisions have been depicted.

those are like the image of road crashes, traffic congestion, aggressive driving, underage driving, driving while intoxicated.  as well as other issues.

Every citizen of India, whether in legal, political, social, or moral scenarios.

it is responsible for driving safely on the road and acting responsibly.

If anyone is found to be in violation of such an obligation, he will consider an incompetent driver and citizen of India.

hence he will face a penalty.

Motor vehicles act-Road blocking

The Inter Motor Vehicles Act of 1988 governs these rules, which prohibits vehicles from running on the sidewalk.

The Rules of Road Regulation, 1989, Section 7 to Section 38 of the Motor Vehicles Act, and Section 138 clauses (h) and (I) statements.

It states that the Motor Vehicles Act prohibits drivers from driving on footpaths, which causes congestion and blockage.
