Traffic police will lock the wheel of the violator for the following offenses: parking in a no-parking zone, obstructing traffic, or other traffic violations. Whether intentional or unintentional, the police will proceed with legal action. First, check the fine notice for the violation details, fine rates, and the police station in the area where the offense occurred.
