    New Delhi (Sputnik): A strict traffic regulation in India, introduced in September 2019 has resulted in confrontations between traffic violators and regulators. Many states have started levying heavy fines as a deterrent to violations, as provided in a new federal law, being adopted by the provincial government.

    In a new incident, an argument between a traffic policeman and car driver reached a whole new level when the violator drove his vehicle at a high rate of speed with the cop hanging on to its bonnet in the Indian capital New Delhi.

    In a video clip recorded by a passenger in the car, a traffic cop can be seen asking the driver to halt and wait for further orders. The disgruntled driver, however, drove off in a bid to escape from paying a traffic fine.

    The traffic policeman jumped on to the bonnet of the car in an attempt to stop the violator, but the scenes turned dramatic on a busy Delhi road when the car driver accelerated his vehicle with the cop still on the bonnet.

    The video clip has gone viral on social media, leaving people rattled over the driver's audacious behaviour. While condemning it, several social media users have also sought stringent action against the driver for jeopardizing the life of the cop.

    Several others hailed the cop for his bravery.

    In a similar incident in December 2018, a driver of an SUV dragged a traffic cop for several metres in the Gurugram area, adjacent to Delhi. The driver was asked to stop and show his driver's license but he refused to comply and drove off. In a bid to stop him, the cop jumped on his car’s bonnet.
