Ghaziabad police has issued an invoice of Rs 62,000
Last year, Ghaziabad police issued an invoice of Rs 62,000 to three youths for dangerous driving on the road. The consignment came after a video of the incident went viral.
After watching the police video, Traffic Superintendent, Ramananda Kushwaha said that the police had noted the vehicle registration numbers from the video. They track down vehicles and issue multiple shipments to drivers of three vehicles.
Video Evidence Based Run
Police are now using viral video to issue invoices. This is not the first incident in Ghaziabad where criminals have been tracked using video footage. In the past, two girls stunting on a Royal Enfield motorcycle and stunting on a Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza have received invoices from police based on viral videos.
Stunts of any kind on public roads are illegal and violators can even go to jail and pay hefty fines. Stunting on public roads can land you in one place for a variety of reasons. If one wants to practice stunting or record videos, it should be done on private property such as race tracks and even on farms. Also, one should note that such stunts are extremely dangerous.
Performing such stunts on public roads is a sure way to get invoices, especially today when everyone is videotaping on their phones. Also, due to the presence of CCTV cameras in the streets, it is not a good idea to try such stunts on public streets.
