CCTV footage of a speeding car ramming into a motorcycle and parked vehicles from Yamunanagar, a city in the Indian state of Haryana on Sunday is going viral on social media.
Police report that five people sustained injuries and they are further investigating the matter, the Indian news agency ANI said.
India accounts for almost 11% of traffic accident-related deaths in the world, according to the 2018 World Health Organisation Global Report on Road Safety; the country is home to over 17.7 percent of the world's population.
The Indian Parliament had passed a new law in 2019, the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act, 2019, under which the fine was increased for many offences to address road accidents and improve road safety in the country.
The law has received a backlash for imposing heavy fines while some states had announced that they will not implement it, calling it “harassment”.
