Uttar Pradesh rakes up Rs3.95 crore fine from vehicles

Lucknow : With overloading of vehicles turning out to be one of the foremost reasons for road accidents in the state, the Uttar Pradesh government has recovered Rs 3.95 crore as penalty in the last six days.

The fine was imposed on 4,456 vehicles and action was taken against 2,571 vehicles by the transport department, an official said on Saturday.

Calling for sustained and stringent action against overloaded vehicles, Uttar Pradesh chief secretary Alok Ranjan has asked the transport officials, public works, traffic, police and mining departments to launch a joint action team against all such vehicles.

District magistrates (DMs) were asked to ensure adequate security for these teams while on raids, officials said.

There have been many cases in past where raiding teams were assaulted, the official said.
