A Honda Jazz car owner from Hyderabad has been fined a whopping Rs 1.82 lakh during the course of the past one year.

The vehicle in question, with the registration number: TS09ER2957, has been found overspeeding 127 times between April 4, 2017 and March 10, 2018, as per the Telangana State e-challan portal.

The Telangana State Police fines Rs 1400 for overspeeding with Rs 35 user charges that makes it a total of Rs 1435. As per reports, the overspeeding incidents took place at the city’s accident-prone Outer Ring Road.

Notably, in May 2017, seeing a spate of speed-related accidents on the eight-lane Outer Ring Road, the speed limit was reduced from 120 kmph to 100 kmph.

One could attribute the number of overspeeding incidents to the change in the law but even before that, as many as eight overspeeding incidents only in the month of April 2017 were recorded by the Telangana State Police cameras from the same vehicle.

Whenever a violation is recorded by the system a message goes to the vehicle owner’s phone number informing him about the challan.

The vehicle, whose owner has been listed as Lessee Mylan Laboratories Limited, on the Telangana State Police website, made the most number of violations in the month of July.
