The Telegraph writes:

The  driving license card readers would enable the police to find out traffic offences committed by the licence holder in the past and ascertain whether it was suspended for prior violations. It will also help to find out the validity of the smart-chip based driving licence.

For second-time offenders, there will be double fine, which can extend up to Rs 1,000. For third-time violations, they may seize the vehicles.

The police collected Rs 2.58 crore as penalty from traffic offenders in 2015.
