PORVORIM: Minister for Transport, the total amount of fines collected on offences related to driving during the year 2021 is Rs. 9.86 crores.
“The total amount of fines collected on offences related to driving during the year 2021 is Rs. 986.86 lakh,” said Godinho.
He further said that during 2021, the number of offences registered for driving without a license was 5072, and the number of offences registered for driving under the influence of alcohol was 262.
After several postponements, the then State government finally announced implementing the amended Act after the poll results from April 1, 2022.
The department said that the Goa government was duty-bound to implement the new rules because of strictures from a Supreme Court-appointed committee monitoring the implementation of the amended Act.
Goa was among other states which decided to enforce the law by lowering the fine amount for certain offences on due permission from the apex court.
