Chandigarh, September 13

The UT traffic police, who earlier mentioned a traffic violator as an accused in the TVIS (traffic violation information slip), have now replaced the word accused with violator.

A Punjab and Haryana High Court lawyer, Nihit Lomis, had made a representation to the SSP (Traffic), stating that the Motor Vehicles Act nowhere mentioned that a person who violated a traffic rule should be called an accused.

He had stated that the person concerned should be addressed as a violator or offender. The police, after consultation, took up the matter with the NIC for necessary changes in the e-challan application after which the word accused was replaced with violator. — TNS
