The roadways bus drivers in UP need to be at their toes.
If they found talking on mobile while driving, the government has asked passengers to take pictures of such drivers and sent it on WhatsApp. Cash prizes will be awarded to the passengers who click pictures.
This move will be quite helpful in creating a sense of responsibility among drivers.
At this point of time, an offender can be booked according to the Motor Vehicles Act, and punished with a jail term extending up to six months with a fine in the vicinity of Rs 1,000.
With a fleet of more than 11,851 buses, the roadway buses in UP operate over 3 million kilometres catering to the travel requirements of over 1.4 million people.
