Goa Traffic Rules

Goa is the fifth-highest state to report maximum deaths by road accidents in 2019 as stated in the report by NCRB. Going by the claims of traffic police officials in Goa, speeding vehicles are the major reason behind the high number of road accidents in the state. For the unversed, overspeeding is a violation of the traffic rules of the country, including in Goa. Any violation of the traffic rules stated under the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 can lead to a penalty or a Goa traffic challan.

With the rise in the number of road accidents pan-India, including Goa, the central government had revised the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988. The revised Act enforced stricter rules and heftier penalties for the violation of traffic rules. In some cases, the fine amounts were increased by almost 200% of the previous amount. The new guidelines as per the revised Act came into effect from 1st September 2019.

Goa, however, did not accept the new traffic challan rates as stated in the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act, 2019 immediately. The state government decided to accept new rates for few offences and slash the challan rates for other offences citing reasons of unfeasibility. As a result, the Goa traffic challan rates are different from the rest of the country.

The new traffic challan rates in Goa were supposed to be implemented starting January 2020. But the implementation of the new challan rates was further delayed in Goa first due to the poor road conditions and later due to the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The new Goa traffic challan rates were finally brought into effect from 1st May 2021.

Before knowing about the traffic challan rates in Goa, take a look at various documents that every car driver must carry as per the Goa traffic rules.

Documents Required to Avoid a Goa Traffic Challan

According to the Goa traffic rules, every car driver in Goa must carry the following documents while using a four-wheeler:

  • A valid car insurance policy
  • Driving license of the person driving the vehicle
  • Registration certificate (RC) of the car
  • PUC or Pollution Under Control certificate

In case a car driver is unable to present the above-mentioned documents to the traffic police when asked, he/she will violate the Goa traffic rules and attract a challan.

  • Fill in the contact details

Traffic Rules That Every Car Owner in Goa Should Follow

Here are some of the most common Goa traffic rules that every car driver must follow while using his/her four wheeler in Goa:

  • Always remember to wear a seatbelt when travelling in a car as it will prevent the car occupants from getting heavily injured during an accident.
  • Always carry all the necessary car documents either in hard copy or soft copy while using the vehicle. These are the first things a traffic police officer will ask for when he signals to stop the car.
  • Do not drive a four wheeler in a drunken condition as it is not only dangerous for the occupants of the car but also for other people.
  • Always adhere to the speed limit prescribed for a road to avoid earning a challan.
  • Never use a mobile phone while driving a car as it could lead to major accidents.
