Challan for Slippers, Sandals & T-Shirts When Riding Two Wheelers
There have been many instances of police officials issuing challans to two-wheeler riders for riding motorcycles or scooters wearing slippers, sandals or half T-shirts. We must understand that India is a predominantly hot country with temperatures easily reaching well above 45 degrees during summers in most parts. As a result, the Motor Vehicle Act confirms that you can’t be challaned for wearing any of the aforementioned items while riding any two-wheeler.

In addition to that, you might have seen some traffic police officers taking the keys out from the bike after stopping you for something. As per the law, they are not allowed to do that. You can make a video of this and report this behaviour to the authorities. Moreover, they don’t have the right to abuse or harass you verbally or physically. Apart from that, they can’t stop you from recording a video documenting the entire episode.

Suppose, you have been challaned for a particular offence, say not wearing a helmet by a police officer. You can’t then be challaned again for the same offence on that day by other police officials. You must be aware of all these things to navigate your way better through the rules and regulations pertaining to traffic. However, you must also ensure that you don’t violate traffic rules in the first place. Remember, the traffic rules are for your own safety and the safety of others on the road. Follow traffic regulations and stay safe.
