Getting a new driving licence to get tough

Getting a new driving licence to get tough
Written by Parichay Malvankar

When they say streets are filled with idiots, it also has something to do with the licencing authorities. Why are idiots allowed to get down on the roads with a valid driving licence? To curb this ever increasing number of  drivers with a valid licence on road, the Supreme Court has come up with a solution that every designated officer will not issue more than 15-20 driving licences in a day.

Some officers are currently issuing upwards of 200 driving licences, which has been accounted as a faulty practice since it is not possible to adhere to all rules and approve so many applications.

The government now wants to focus on road safety by filtering out at a very early stage, as early as while getting a driving licence.

We welcome this decision and believe that it is a step in the right direction to issue a driving licence to an applicant only after going through the entire procedure, step-by-step.
