Cops are very active near the HMT junction at the fag-end of the Seaport-Airport road, Kochi. Had a narrow escape yesterday. Didn't see any mobile court, but did see the cops flagging down cars.

Yes. I was about to write the same but you had already mentioned.

I really hope that Hyderabad doesn't catch up to this nonsense.

Where was she stopped? From what I have seen they are present everywhere and rather randomly. Its tough to pin point certain specific locations specially given the fact that distances in delhi are quite long and one has to travel a lot across the city.
I feel moving down all 4 windows might make you even more of a suspect specially when you are driving alone. Although it does sound like a good idea.
It was in front of Vasant Kunj malls, being lady they told her to get it removed with help at home.
Most of the time I know their location and praying that they will get tired after some time. Even you can understand from barricade they put for this purpose as its very difficult for them to stop flowing traffic.

Delhi girl gang-raped, dumped near highway - The Times of India

And the car (Tata Nano) used in this crime didn't have black tints as far as I know from TV news.

Totally Agree - You cannot stop rapists even if a rule is passed that only cabriolet models are street legal. The only way to stop rapists is punish them by "hang to death". People have become so thick skinned that only the lathi will work. Off-Topic. An ATM was robbed in new-mumbai and the robbers had Helmets on. Am I hinting at another rule? Only transparent plastic made helmets are legal.

700 bucks just for removing old films? I was just quoted 200 bucks at a reputed auto accessories shop. Others may be cheaper.

You can get hanged for murder. Does it stop murders? No laws can prevent crimes. Punishments are reactive. Their effectiveness at protectively preventing crimes is very debatable.

- You can plead guilty but now-a-days the penalties are paltry so people are not bothered.

Strict actions in addition to policing will make life easier.

First offense in 100/-. 100 is paltry for a person who has invested 10,000 on a sun film.

Offense fines for sun-film should be like warning for the first time, 1000/-for the second fine and suspended license for 1 year for 3rd attempt. If vehicle is still found flouting rules, vehicle should be seized and owner should serve a 1 year sentence

^^^If you had invested 10k in sunfilms, you too would have prayed that fines are paltry. Things always work both ways and everything has pros and cons.

Here, the way I look at it is that the state and courts are vandalizing public property and glamorizing the vandalizing by calling it "law". Imagine the plight of those in very hot parts of the country who have invested in expensive films just before this "law". Sunfilm is nothing less than shelter in places that reach 45 - 50 deg. C. The state and courts are out to destroy your shelter.

The highest court has effectively ruled that Indians have any right to the shelter component of the basic necessities of life like food, clothing and shelter.

I have a query. How does the law see the numerous Maruti Omni and Eeco which are used by many small time business houses in Delhi and other cities to transport there goods. I am talking about the ones which have got the body coloured panels in place of window glasses all over the vehicle. The only areas where you can peep into the car is through the windshield and the front 2 windows. This is what I am talking about:

Isn't this a much more potent weapon in the hand's of the criminals?

When someone is out to do a crime, he can find numerous ways to accomplish that. A maruti gypsy or for the more comfort oriented an air-conditionted ambulance are some of the perfect vehicles for such sexual assault crimes. Sun film ban is not going to achieve anything apart from putting 15 crore law abiding Indian citizens or 2.5% of humanity to hardship.

Hello all,

I found this notice on Pune Traffic Police's website.

वाहतूक शाखेकडून Tinted Glass ची कारवाई केलेबाबत...

They are still talking about 50% and 70% VLT.
Hopefully this means they are not going to challan for approved sunfilms (at least for now).

I still have not removed my sunfilms. Original plan was to continue till getting a challan for the first time. Now plan is to carry a print out of this notice.

Anyone else from Pune having any updates on the situation?

P.S. : My Marathi is not very good but I think they have mistakenly mentioned VLT should not be more that 50% and 70% which is exactly opposite of the rule.
