Kolkata, Sep 11 (UNI) West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday made it clear that she won't implement the new law imposing hefty fines for traffic violation.

Terming the amendments in the Motor Vehicles Act as "too harsh" the Chief Minister said it was against the federal structure of the government.

"We had opposed amendments in Parliament. If we implement the Motor Vehicles Act amendments, it will hurt common people," the chief minister commented.

Stating that money is the not solution, Banerjee said, "The problem needs to be looked at from the humanitarian point of view."

Stating that accidents have come down, Banerjee said Bengal has already the "Safe Drive Save Life" campaign - a flagship programme of the State Government focusing on road safety.

Bengal is the third state to reject the Centre's new law.

The Centre has contended that tightening the rules on traffic violations will help to make the country's roads safer.
