Re: Never Back Down !
SAHIB - " fine lagega + towing charges. Bharo and bike leke jao. " (Fine applicable along with towing charges> Pay up and take your bike.
~Translated in English~
ME - Why dont you see the pictures that I have and sort it out ?
SAHIB - NO can do, pay up. No other option.
ME- May I know your name pls ?
SAHIB - why ? but its XYZ.
ME - I dial up 100 and said " I'd like to report a vehicle theft in progress .."
Now the Sahib is worries and gets up from his chair and tells me to disconnect the call. I tell his name on the phone and location of police chowky ( Under the Vashi Flyover). The operator on phone is confused but he says to wait as he's sending over a police guy.
5 mins later another police guy comes and he seems a bit professional. I show him the evidence and he knows i'm correct. But the SAHIB is still not satisfies and tell him that theres the 50m no parking sign and I have to pay fine. A small crowd has gathered by now. Finally someone comes up with a tape measure and the SAHIB, towing guys, new police guy and I reach the said sign. The chalk mark is still visible. the towing guys start to measure from the sign board and when they read the chalk mark, distance is 52.XXm ! This was more than enough for the police guy. He said you can settle up now, or we can take this to police station.
SAHIB is now worried and tells me to take bike and go. I asked him for some compensation. I started from 10,000 and we finally settled it for Rs 300 Reluctantly he gave me 300 bucks and we went our way .

Re: Got caught by Traffic Police? Wriggle out with RTI
Ok I just ran a search on the BTP website with my vehicle number and found 5 violations. 4 of these are for Jumping the Signal (fine Rs.100 each) and one is Dangerous Driving (fine Rs.400). The offenses are dated Nov/Dec 2016 and Jan 2017, and I don't have any proofs which can vouch for my innocence.
I am sure all of these are random as both me and my wife are very sedate drivers and follow traffic rules.
I know the first step would be to ask for proofs from the traffic police, which I am sure they won't have. But if they are adamant then how to deal with them? I have zero experience dealing with the cops.
Also, does any of this offense amount to license cancellation?
