Driver Strike: Chaos Over Hit and Run Law

| Updated: January 2, 2024 15:47

Chaos Over Hit and Run Law

The recent amendment to the Hit and Run Law by the central government has sparked a nationwide uproar among drivers of trucks, buses, and large vehicles. The law, aimed at controlling road accidents, mandates severe punishment for non-reporting of accidents. The punishment can extend up to 10 years in jail and a fine of Rs 7 lakh. However, the punishment can be reduced if the accused reports the accident to the police themselves.

The drivers’ union is protesting against this law, demanding its withdrawal. They argue that no such incident is deliberate, but rather an accident. They further state that at the time of the accident, the crowd often gets angry and if the driver stops, the mob attacks, leading to a threat of mob lynching. This fear has led to drivers leaving their jobs, which could potentially lead to a shortage of drivers in the future.

The strike has had a ripple effect on the economy as well. With drivers on strike, lines at petrol pumps have grown longer and the price of vegetables has also increased. This situation highlights the critical role that drivers play in our daily lives and the economy.

The government and the drivers’ union need to engage in a dialogue to address these concerns and find a solution that ensures road safety while also protecting the rights and safety of drivers. The current situation serves as a reminder of the delicate balance between law enforcement and the rights of individuals.
