Govt Plans Fine For Non-Use Of Rear Seat Belts Seat, Says Nitin Gadkari

Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday said, people who would be sitting at the back seat of a car and not wearing a seat belt will be fined. He said this following the death of former Tata Group chairman Cyrus Mistry.

On Sunday, Mr Mistry was sitting at the back seat without seat belt and his speeding Mercedes suddenly crashed into a dividee in Maharashtra’s Palghar district.

“Already, it’s mandatory to wear seat belt at the rear seat but people are not following it. There will be a siren if the people at the rear seat don’t wear belts like for the front seats. And if they don’t wear belts, there will be a fine,” said the Union Minister Nitin Gadkari in an interview asserting “at any lost, lives have to be saved”.

Stressing upon the goal of reducing road accidents by 50% in 2024, Mr Gadkari said, the motive behind fining is not to get money but spreading awareness about seat belts for those sitting at the back of a car.

When he was questioned about the amount of fine to be charged he said, “the minimum fine is ₹ 1,000”.
He was even asked about whether there will be any problems in implementation of fine as the state governments have also say in this matter he said, “No, I don’t think so. They always support us”.

“There are cameras and anywhere people who aren’t following can be caught easily,” Mr Gadkari also said.

He said saving lives is more important when he was questiomed whthere mandatory installation of airbags in cars will hike the cost.

“Cost of 1 airbag is 1,000, for 6, it’s 6,000. With more production, the cost will be reduced. Cost is not important, people’s lives are,” said the transport minister.

Seeking cooperation from media Mr Gadkari said following the death of Cyrus Mistry, celebrities are campaigning for road safety.

“I am really very sorry and feeling bad. We should take the lesson and learn from it,” he said for the sudden demise of the former Tata Group chairman.

As per the report named ‘Road accidents in India – 2020’, more than 11% of deaths and injuries were caused by non-use of seat belts, while 30.1% of deaths and 26% injuries were caused by non-use of helmets in 2020.
