An order issued by the RTO Kashmir, states that in the exercise of powers vested in the RTO Kashmir under Section 19 of the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988, read with Rule 21 of the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989, the driving licences of the defaulters are suspended.

The suspended licences are linked to offences such as rash and negligent driving, obstruction to ambulances, breach of route permits, lack of speed-limiting devices, riding without a helmet, and overloading passengers.

RTO Kashmir stressed that the suspensions will only be revoked after passing the Driving Institute Refresher Course, followed by a more stringent re-test for the driving licence.

He said the suspension should serve as a deterrent to those who keep violating traffic rules and jeopardise their own lives and the lives of others on the roads.

“We will be carrying out random inspection drives in the coming days, and those found violating the traffic and motor vehicle acts will be dealt with as per the relevant laws,” the RTO said—(KNO).
