Bhubaneswar: Following resentment over hefty fines under the Motor Vehicle Act, 2019, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Monday directed the enforcement agencies not to go on an aggressive overdrive in collection of traffic violation penalties from the people for three months.

According to a release by Chief Minister’s Office (CMO), Naveen has instead directed them to counsel and handhold the public to facilitate compliance with the amended provisions of the Act.

The Transport Department has also been asked to augment public services, strengthen facilitation centres, open extra counters and conduct camps in public institutions so as to enable the motor vehicle users to update their compliance status.

This process will continue for three months to allow people time to ensure compliance. This apart, massive road safety awareness campaign will be carried out to sensitise people on the new norms, the release added.

The Chief Minister has requested all vehicle users to obey the traffic rules and desist from dangerous driving and get all relevant documents ready in three months.
