New Motor Vehicles Bill: How is Your Life Going to be Affected?
On this episode of The Big Story we dissect the provisions of the newly passed Motor Vehicles Amendment Bill.
What are the new laws coming into effect? How will your travel and daily life be affected? Well, at the least, let’s say they’ll be affected a LOT. Traffic violations, driving without helmets or a license, and drunk driving will draw heavy fines now.
However, cab services like Uber and Ola will also be held accountable for surge pricing, driver quality and passenger safety. So, in short, there’s a lot on offer in this new Bill.
I’m joined by The Quint’s Tech and Auto correspondent, Aadeetya Sriram, to explain some of the new laws.
We also hear from transport minister Nitin Gadkari and opposition leaders on this episode.
Listen to the podcast for the whole breakdown.
