Bangalore city traffic police have decided to suspend the registration certificates (RC) of vehicles with shrill horns and defective silencers. Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic and Security) B Dayananda said stringent action will be taken against vehicles found guilty of causing sound pollution.
Between January and May 31 of this year, city police booked 7,470 cases where vehicles were found to be using shrill horns and 2,557 cases for using defective silencers.
Dayananda said that traffic police officers have been asked to report any such violations to the concerned Regional Transport Offices (RTOs) at the very first instance. “To avoid confusion and accidents and also to reduce sound pollution, we have taken this initiative,” MN Baburajendra Prasad, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic East) said.

Traffic police said such cases will be booked under Section 53(1)(a) of the Motor Vehicles Act 1988 wherein the RC book can be seized by the police and then sent to the RTO for suspension.
Police also said that the rule will be extended to penalise people driving with bald tyres and emitting black smoke. As of now, Bangalore police largely let off these offenders after collecting a fine.
