New Delhi: The Delhi government wants to provide respite to people from steeply hiked penalties under the amended Motor Vehicle Act and will take a “conscious” decision on it, Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot said on Wednesday.He, however, clarified the Delhi government is not mulling to “dilute” the hiked penalties as of now. The government is taking feedback from the stakeholders and looking at how other states are moving on it. It will soon take a “conscious” call on it, Gahlot said at a press conference. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderTo a question on hiked penalties, the minister said, “The government wants to give respite (to the people). But, the areas where the (Delhi) government has powers have to be examined. The Motor Vehicles Act comes under the Central list and if the Union government makes any amendment, it prevails over the powers of the state.” “Though state governments have certain discretionary powers to ease the penalties with respect to certain offences as per the new Motor Vehicles Act, as of now the Delhi government is not mulling to dilute them since the stringent measures are meant to ensure road safety,” the minister said in a statement. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsHe said road safety is a major concern for the Delhi government and it is very serious about the issue. “We are closely observing the initiatives of other states as well as consulting with various stakeholders. At any stage, if the Delhi government is convinced about reducing penalties for certain offences, we will do the needful,” Gahlot said. There are around 61 offences under the amended Act, out of which 27 are those on which state governments have no say. However, in the case of the remaining 34 compoundable offences, the state governments can exercise their discretion, he said. The Delhi transport minister said his department has taken several measures to meet the heavy rush for obtaining pollution under check (PUC) certificates. “The capacity of the server has been enhanced from today so that it can process over 6,000 applications for PUC certificates each which was around 3,200 per hour earlier,” Gahlot said. The PUC centres at Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) depots and terminals have been kept open from 11 am till 7 pm, for catering to private vehicles. The transport department will also invite applications for opening new PUC centres. The number of PUC centres in the national capital now is 940, he said. According to an official, after the amended Motor Vehicles Act come into force on September 1, each day on an average 50,000 vehicles undergo the test for a certificate of meeting emission and pollution control norms now, against 10,000 to 12,000 vehicles visiting the test centres before the amended law, which hiked the penalty, came into force. Civil Defence volunteers will be deployed at the PUC centres for crowd management and the Delhi government is keeping a tab on the these facilities so that they do not indulge in any malpractice like overcharging the vehicle owners, Gahlot said, adding two centres have been suspended for malpractices. The number of vehicles in the city is over 1.10 crore, out of which 70 lakh ply on the city roads. Non BS-IV compliant vehicles need to get a PUC certificate after every three months, while BS-IV standard ones require it every year.
The chart above shows these increases for the 18 teams that have qualified for the Stanley Cup Final over the past nine seasons. The 2009 Detroit Red Wings had the biggest change in intensity between the regular season and the playoffs — they averaged 14.0 more hits per game in the postseason. Last year’s finals featured the Los Angeles Kings, who increased their hit number by 8.0 per game, and the New York Rangers, whose hit number rose by 6.8.And it’s not just that the hits increase as the season goes on. When I restricted the data to only regular-season games in the last few weeks of the season (March and April), I still found a playoff increase of 14.4 hits per game. This suggests that the differences between the regular and postseason are not attributable to an overall increase in hitting as the season goes on. Thinning out the data a bit more to look only at regular-season games between two eventual playoff teams, I still found that there were 14.2 more hits in postseason games than in regular-season ones.The players, of course, have rising hit tallies themselves. The active player with the biggest increase in hits: Pittsburgh Penguins winger Blake Comeau. While Comeau averages just 2.0 hits per game in the regular season, his postseason average is 5.5. Even though he has played only six postseason games, this difference is statistically significant.Every game in the the first round of the playoffs is likely to feature a lot of heavy hitting. If you’re looking for the series that should have the biggest intensity jump, look no further than the Montreal Canadiens versus the Ottawa Senators and Comeau’s Penguins versus the Rangers. Both of these series feature six players whose playoff increase in hits is in the top 50 in the NHL. It’s April, and the Stanley Cup lies in wait. The NHL postseason starts Wednesday, and with it comes the NHL’s most intense play. It’s not just the stakes that rise this time of year. It’s the on-ice aggression, too.Using data from every regular and postseason NHL game from 2005-06 through today, I identified every hit that was registered on the official play-by-play record. When comparing the total number of non-overtime hits in the more than 11,000 regular-season games and more than 750 postseason games, I found that there’s a massive and statistically significant increase in hits when the playoffs start.Regular-season games average about 42.0 total hits for both teams prior to overtime. In the playoffs, that number jumps 36 percent to 57.2 pre-overtime hits per game.Out of the 144 playoff teams since the 2005-06 NHL season, 142 increased their average number of hits per game after the playoffs started. For 101 of the teams, this difference is unlikely to have occurred because of randomness.1Meaning the p-value was less than .05.
