If a traffic police officer asks for an amount that is not the correct traffic fine, what can I do?
If you are stopped by a traffic cop and you are asked to pay an amount that you are unsure is the correct traffic amount:
- Step 1: Ask the traffic cop about the traffic rule that you have violated.
- Step 2: Ask for a challan or an e-challan from the traffic police officer.
- Step 3: The Challan or e-challan will have the correct fine amount on it.
If you are asked for a higher amount than you think is the fine amount, then insist on having the challan issued to you. This way, you will only have to pay the exact fine amount given under the law.
