Notice of traffic offence: Will the concerned clarify?

April 11, 2018


I was surprised to receive a notice of traffic offence for no fault of mine. The notice was about a helmetless driving of a two-wheeler which was in my name for the use of my daughter. Purchased in November 2005, this vehicle moved to my daughter’s inlaws home following her marriage in 2013. This was exchanged for a TVS Jupiter by my new relatives with my approval at a showroom in Mysuru.

The showroom has maintained a record of the sale effected by it and has handed over Forms 29 and 30 for further action at the RTO West, Mysuru. The truth about the latter action having not taken place has come to the fore in the form of the above-mentioned notice. The vehicle’s Reg. No is KA 09 EF 8447 and it is a Kinetic Nova 135.

The onus in the case of helmetless driving rests on the rider and not the owner. Yet, the owner gets the notice!  In this case the first owner doesn’t have an inkling of the person to whom the vehicle is sold by the company showroom!

Will all the persons concerned or agencies take steps as required in setting this error right and oblige? Scanned images of two notices are produced above.
