How To Avoid Getting a Traffic E-Challan

Try as you might, there may be times when unwillingly you end up breaking a traffic law. Maybe you forgot to wear your seatbelt or thought you had time to cross over the traffic light before it turns red, or you forgot to notice the speed limit specified on a particular stretch of the road and raced your vehicle away. In any case, you will end up receiving an e-challan for your traffic offense. If in case you have an e-challan issued to you, you should not take it lightly at any cost.
