For unregistered vehicle cases, notices will be issued to the concerned dealers, potentially leading to the suspension of their trade certificates. This measure aims to ensure that all vehicles on the road are properly registered and adhere to legal standards.

These recent incidents and the subsequent legal actions underscore the importance of adhering to traffic regulations. The authorities are urging the public to follow the rules to prevent further tragedies and ensure road safety.
