MVD issues warning against road pollution by spitting

mvd

Kerala Motor Vehicle Department has issued a stern warning to individuals who pollute the roads by spitting, emphasizing that this behavior constitutes an offense under Kerala Motor Vehicle Rule 46. The department highlighted that such acts are punishable by severe penalties in many foreign countries and stressed that similar rules apply in Kerala.

The Facebook post, criticized the behaviour of people who spit on the roads after chewing pan masala or bubblegum, vomit, or discard food items and water bottles without any regard for others. This habit is prevalent among both locals and people from other states. The department noted that although there might be more non-Malayalees who chew and spit pan masala and tobacco, Malayalees are not far behind in other forms of road pollution.

The post described the distressing experiences of pedestrians and passengers, who often become unsuspecting victims of such offensive behaviour. These incidents are common on the roads and are a daily sight for many.

Kerala Motor Vehicle Rule 46 clearly defines spitting and similar acts on the road as offenses. The department urged the public to be aware of the impact of their actions and to understand that throwing garbage or spitting on others is unacceptable in a cultured society. There is a call for increased awareness and behavioral change to address this issue and maintain public cleanliness and decency.
