Drive against auto drivers

Drive against auto drivers
Bangalore, August 29, DHNS:

Taking serious note of citizens’ complaints about tampered meters of autorickshaws and drivers demanding excess fare, the Transport Department conducted an enforcement drive against errant drivers/owners on Sunday.

It was carried jointly with the Department of Weights and Measures, with the use of portable testing equipment on the road for checking such vehicles. Drivers found guilty of the above offences will have to face the music as the department will book. Cases were booked under Section 177 of the Vehicle Act, 1988 against defaulting drivers. Cases of cheating, fraud under Sections 420, 465, and 471 (all non-bailable offences) of the Indian Penal Code were booked against them.
