Some important facts and cases about and under Motor Accident Laws


The Motor Vehicles Act is applicable to the whole of India. It talks about matters related to the maximum time for which a motor vehicle might be used. Section 59 of the Act gives the power to fix the age limit of a motor vehicle. Central government has the power to make rules as per Section 110, and Section 111 confers the power on State Governments to make certain rules.

The speed limit is dealt with under Section 112 of the Act. Various types of offences re recognised as per the Act, to list a few are Sections3-6, 23, 36, 112, 129, 185, 189, and so on. Section 129 is with respect to the usage of protective head gear. Section 185 is with respect to a drunken person driving or a person under the influence of drugs in charge of a vehicle.

Due sensitization of the automobile engineers and those connected with sale, servicing and maintenance of vehicles to the provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act 1988 is a functional necessity. Section 304A of the Indian Penal Code confers criminal liability for the rash and negligent acts of a driver. A man who is driving or riding holds a definitive obligation to control his vehicle. Such a man is prima facie blameworthy of negligence if his vehicle dashes into something or somebody unless he has motivation to clarify that he made every effort to monitor the vehicle however the mishap was inescapable. This rule was set up in the milestone case of Ratlam v.s Emperor.

On account of Chintaram v.s State of Madhya Pradesh, the deceased was strolling on the widely appealing so the blamed was driving by the left for the street endeavouring to keep a separation from her. At the point when the accused reached near the perished she suddenly took a left turn and got struck by the cruiser. For this situation, the accused was not careless. The whimsical choice of the casualty did not give any sensible time to the motorcyclist to maintain a strategic distance from her so he was acquitted.
