The Transport Department has launched a large-scale campaign to apprehend overloaded vehicles and seize them immediately. Regional Transport Officer PL Bamnia reported that Transport Inspector Shakeel Ali, from the department's flying squad, attempted to stop two overloaded vehicles from Ajmer district on the highway. However, both drivers disregarded the squad's orders and tried to drive away from the checking site.
After following the vehicles for about half a kilometer, the inspector managed to stop them. He seized the vehicles and instructed the drivers to take them to the departmental Caesar yard. However, the drivers failed to restart the vehicles and parked them at the specified location. As a result, the personnel from the departmental flying squad seized both the vehicles on the spot and imposed a fine of Rs 40,000 on one vehicle and Rs 50,000 on the other for overloading.
Transport Inspector Shakeel Ali has submitted a proposal to the relevant district transport officers, urging them to take action and suspend the licenses of the drivers of both the vehicles. PL Bamnia informed that the entire Udaipur region's departmental flying squads have been directed to carry out thorough and stringent inspections to combat overloading effectively.
The Transport Department has issued directives to all district transport officers, emphasizing the need for immediate action in cases of overloading. They are instructed to prioritize suspension of vehicle registration, fitness, permit, and driver's license if any instance of overloading is found during inspections.
