Pimpri Chinchwad Police Crackdown on Tinted Windows: Rs 14 Lakh Fine Collected from 1,174 Vehicles

In a recent development, the Pimpri Chinchwad Police took stringent action against 1,174 vehicles in the Pimpri Chinchwad area for having tinted windows or black covers on their windows in January 2024. The initiative aimed at promoting road safety and ensuring compliance with traffic regulations resulted in the collection of a total fine of Rs 13.87 lakh.

According to the Pimpri Chinchwad Police, dark black window films pose a safety risk as they can hinder visibility and create potential hazards on the road. In a statement, they emphasized their commitment to enforcing traffic rules uniformly, irrespective of the vehicle owner’s status.

Social media platforms have become a sounding board for citizens to express their opinions on this issue. One user, identified as X, pointed out that certain vehicle models, such as Thar cars and Fortuners, often have dark black films but are frequently overlooked by the traffic department.

Another user raised concerns about the consistency of the enforcement, questioning whether the rules applied to everyone, including well-known individuals. The user cited a specific example of a car regularly parked at the Wakad traffic post with a non-standard number plate and tinted windows.

Acknowledging the initiative, another user praised the police for addressing the prevalence of tinted windows in the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) area.

However, a tweet urged the police to extend their actions to influential individuals, including village sarpanchs and individuals with a criminal background. The tweet emphasized the importance of equal treatment under the law.

The debate on social media highlights the need for transparent and consistent enforcement of traffic regulations, addressing concerns about selective action and ensuring that the rules apply to everyone, regardless of their status.
