I generally don't comment on people, but I have noticed that this thread has been single-handedly hijacked by one member whose (more than 15) long posts contain random and off-topic arguments, which add no value to the topic being discussed or to the forum.

Let the thread be and let's post relevant to the topic. Suppose BMC takes this up a notch and such fines get commonplace, there will be a lot to worry about.

Regarding the topic of the thread, what the BMC has been doing is nothing but politics. It's no use expecting any rational and sensible decisions from the current political leadership which has proven time and again they can't think beyond their own short term gains. What about all these measures which are law?
1. Talking on the cellphone while driving: Countless people drive/ride while talking on the cellphone. Is the traffic police department really serious about preventing these crimes?
2. Wearing a helmet while riding a bike (also mandatory for pillion riders): Traffic policemen themselves are sometimes seen riding without helmets. As for others, there was a big drive a few months back to nab and punish the offenders. Today hardly anyone bothers to stop such motorists, unless they have set up some special checking points to complete their monthly quotas.
3. Fancy numberplates: Not only political goondas, but even others are busy showing off their fancy numberplates. Action taken? Ignore them. I once pointed out a white Swift driving in front of me with no numberplate to a policeman on duty. His reply? "We shall see about it later, get moving fast."
The cleaning drive and the marshalls and all that are just measures to divert attention of the people away from the real issues.
