Officials also appealed motorcyclists to install mud flaps in their vehicles, so that the dirt splashing from their vehicles does not inconvenience other motorists.

“Motorists must have tax certificate, insurance receipt, driving licence, fitness certificate and PUC certificate while travelling. It has been discovered that vehicles meant for transport purposes are being used for various publicity purposes. Many of them display advertisements illegally. All such vehicles will be fined,” Regional Transport Officer Arun Yeola said.
