Bengaluru: Karnataka government has banned the use of hands-free, Bluetooth, headphone etc when driving or riding.

As per the Central Motor Vehicles Act, the use of hands-free, Bluetooth, and headphones when driving or riding is also treated as traffic rule violation. For the first-time offenders, fine of Rs 1,000 is levied, and Rs 2,000 for the repeat offense.

The act simply says that use of hands-free, Bluetooth, headphones etc when driving or riding is completly barred in order to ensure that the rider or driver concentrates on road and driving.

Even though navigation use when driving is banned as per law, in case its use cannot be avoided, they can be attached to vehicles and used so that it does not create problems for the others. If the noise is kept at a low level, the officials are exempting such devices. However, if they are hand held and the sound is increased such violations attract fines.
