Truckers and their tricks
Its been a few years in namma Bengaluru that I've witnessed watching truckers outsmarting the law or even the commoner on the road. Though I've no pics to attach while I post this topic, here are a few things which I've been observing and their "Ideas" are just growing:
-On Election Duty
-On Duty - Southern Railway
-On BBMP Duty
-Hospital Emergency - Urgent (These are seen on trucks too)
How many of us really feel that these are not just tricks but genuine. Personally, from many years of experience here, I've been seeing enough of these.
I am actually more concerned about the Faulty numbers plates which is so oblivious to our so called transport department though I've learnt from my friend in the Police department that the sand and ore lorry racket is a big nexus withing and reaches as high as the Mines and Geological department and it is very little that they can do which is one reason why we seldom see the Police flagging down a Sand/Ore lorry and the out of state truckers are those who end up becoming victims. (On the ring roads, if it a truck is stopped by the Police, it is more likely that they belong to the "other" states)
Would like fellow BHPians to share their views too. More of their stupid Ideas are also welcome.

Most of the construction trucks (and often the inter-city ones) remove the rear crash guards.

in our karnataka there are many accidents, mostly hit and run have happened and the main villain are these ore trucks. i heard that many times when they are returning empty, the "cleaner" boy, who does not have license all that drives it. and frequently my friend who comes with me on long trips, adivses me to beware and be very careful when confronting with these trucks. they do not move an inch and just keep coming all the way!! is there any way to prevent it??
