Mumbai: Maharashtra Government today increased fine for rash driving by three times to curb violations of traffic norms.

The decision was taken at a meeting of state cabinet here.

The Government has amended Motor Vehicle Rule 188 to make the provision for fine of Rs 300. Earlier it was Rs 100, an official from Transport Department said.

The statistics available with the Government show over 70,000 road accidents in 2007, 2008 and 2009 and over 11,000 people died each year in those accidents.

"Considering huge number of accidents due to rash and drunken driving, the Government has increased the fine three times," Chief Minister Ashok Chavan told reporters here.
