It is mandatory to carry emission certificate. However, police have been instructed not to stop any motorists for merely checking emission certificate. Can police penalize vehicles with number plate of other State?
This is not the mandate for police. Why have I received a violation ticket for the vehicle I have already sold? Notices are generated by computers picking up address from transport department records. The very fact you have received a notice means that vehicle continues to be on your name in the records even though you might have sold it.
Selling the vehicle without insisting on change of ownership is a very dangerous practice. Signing a delivery note is no guarantee of change of ownership. You have to insist on buyer registering the vehicle in his name, failing which you have to get it done yourself at RTO. Unless you do so, you will continue to receive violation notices. Still worse can happen if the vehicle is involved in a fatal accident or terrorist activity. You will have to suffer the consequences. My vehicle got damaged in an accident.
Police did not help me in getting compensation! Police will only prosecute the accused for criminal negligence in the court of law. I crossed the stop line seeing green signal. But traffic in front of me was not moving and I got penalized. Even if signal is green you should not enter the junction unless the tail of the traffic in front of you is moving. Otherwise you will create gridlock and block cross traffic too. I crossed stop line before the signal turning red, while it was still yellow.
But I could not clear the junction due to congestion ahead. Why was I fined for signal jumping? Yellow signal is provided only for those vehicles which have already crossed stop line to clear the junction. You are not expected to enter the junction when the green light has already changed to yellow. Why are junctions painted cris-cross in the center? Unless one is sure of clearing the junction, he should not enter the junction even if the signal light is green, because it will block the cross traffic and lead to grid-lock.
It is not possible to put boards all over km road length in city. This is the practice world over. I got fined for parking violation. But board was at least 20 m away from where I parked? It is not possible to put one board for each vehicle. Each board indicates that roughly 50 m each side of boards is no-parking area.
That is why boards are put m apart. Why do traffic police switch off the lights during peak hours? Actually it is not a good practice but is in-evitable due to inadequate capacity of junctions. There are the situation when road is not able to take the entire volume of traffic and tail of traffic ahead does not get cleared even till next green phase. Now if the lights are not switched off, vehicles will block the junction and make it impossible for even cross traffic to move thus creating a grid-lock.
It is lose-lose situation for all. At this juncture policemen take over the signal and regulate it according to clearance and relative volume. However, this practice is largely reduced and will disappear soon due to increased capacity of roads and junctions. Switching off also becomes inevitable during acts of nature like water logging, cracks in road and man-made situations like strikes, rasta-rokho and VIP movement, when one or more roads become unavailable for traffic.
In all such situations mannual operations are resorted to. This practice is, however not encouraged. Among traffic officers, who is authorized to give a spot fine notice?
