A bunch of SUVs were fined by Noida Traffic Police for driving rashly on public road. In yet another example of blatant violation of traffic rules, high-end SUVs like Mahindra Scorpio, Toyota Fortuner, Kia Seltos and Hyundai Venue were seen driving at high speeds with occupants leaning out of the vehicles on a busy road. Part of a 12-car convoy for a wedding or baraat in Greater Noida West, these five vehicles were impounded while all of them were slapped with heavy fines for violating Motor Vehicles Act.

The video of these SUVs in action, which has now gone viral, was shared across social media platforms. The incident took place last Sunday night, November 26, near Greater Noida West. The vehicles were headed to the wedding venue from Okhla in Delhi doing stunts. They were stopped at Kisan Chowk, near Bisrakh Police Station, before they were impounded and issued e-challans.
