In a bid to gain more followers on social media, Gauri Virdi, an Instagrammer from Punjab’s Hoshiarpur district, attempted a risky stunt that quickly gained viral attention. A video showed her sitting on the bonnet of a moving Mahindra Thar on the National Highway.
The Dasuya Police took immediate action upon seeing the video and issued a challan, leading to the seizure of the vehicle. Through registration number and CCTV footage, they identified the vehicle’s owner and driver. Legal action has been initiated against both Gauri Virdi and the driver involved in the dangerous incident. Other passengers present in the vehicle are also under scrutiny.

Many such incidents
In a series of viral videos, two incidents of dangerous stunts involving cars have caught the attention of the authorities. In the first video, a bride was seen sitting gracefully on the bonnet of a Tata Safari Storme, her wedding dress spread across the SUV. This spectacle caused disruptions on a public road, with passersby slowing down to witness the unusual sight, further adding to the traffic congestion.
As a consequence of the viral video, the police took swift action and issued a challan of Rs 15,500 to the car owner for various violations. The charges could include obstructing traffic flow and endangering not only the bride’s life but also the lives of others on the road. However, the specific sections under which the lady was charged have not been explicitly mentioned by the authorities.
In a separate incident, another lady from Adyodhya was caught engaging in a similar act on a speeding Maruti Suzuki Dzire on a single-lane highway. She sat on the car’s bonnet while another girl peered out of the window, risking their safety and the safety of others on the road. The police issued a challan worth Rs 18,000 to the individuals involved in this reckless act.
These incidents serve as a reminder of the potential dangers and consequences of performing such attention-seeking stunts on public roads, and authorities are taking them seriously to ensure road safety for all.

Police using videos to issue challan
Metropolitan cities have significantly improved their surveillance capabilities with the implementation of a robust CCTV network, effectively monitored by vigilant police teams. These cameras play a pivotal role in identifying traffic violations by capturing vehicle registration numbers, leading to the issuance of appropriate challans. However, it’s essential to recognize that online challans may occasionally contain errors, often due to faulty number plates. In such cases, individuals have the option to contest these incorrect challans through the traffic police’s redressal portal.
In recent times, the government and authorities have taken decisive steps to increase fines for traffic violations. The primary objective of this escalation is to discourage individuals from flouting traffic rules and to enhance road safety for all road users. By imposing stricter penalties, they aim to create a safer and more responsible driving culture in the cities.
