AnandG: Excellent points.

All Central and State board and other boards should make this mandaotry.

We should convince our Actors/Actresses to come forward and do commercials showing the correct way of overtaking, parking, lane changing etc etc.

This is should be shown in TV commercials and as well as theaters.

In fact, if any of the car makers come up with ad's showing the correct way of doing things, they can kill two birds with one shot. Gain respect and sales.

Mahindra's ad for their motorcycle's with Aamir Khan was the most sensible motorcycle ad that we can think of.

I feel police themselves are responsible for reckless driving and accidents occuring due to it. I mean what is the value of a driving license in India. Any monkey with enough money can get a driving license .
Make the signing authority responsible for the accidents caused due to reckless driving. This will stop the free distribution of driver licenses in the country.

An update, a day after the special drive started:


Tinted film: Cops mean business

NEW DELHI: "Aap notice mat do, main aapke saamne khud hee film nikal deta hun (Don't issue me a notice, I will remove the tinted film on my own right now)," pleaded a man to a traffic constable on Thursday afternoon. He was of the many who chose to remove the tinted film from his car windows rather than be issued a notice to appear in front of the traffic inspector within 72 hours.

A total of 443 persons were issued challans in the city between 11am and 5pm on Thursday for tinted glasses in their vehicles over the permissible limit, defective number plates and pressure horns. While 231 persons were issued challans for tinted glasses, 211 were issued challans for defective number plates. One person was issued a challan for carrying a pressure horn. However, only 141 persons were sent notices to appear before the traffic inspector concerned.

Traffic cops claimed that they had run out of notice books during the drive. "Thursday was the first day of the drive. Due to operational hassles, we ran out of the notice books which were printed specially for this drive, as several prosecutions took place. Many of the errant vehicle owners chose to remove the tinted film from the windows themselves on the spot. This was especially true in the Delhi Gate area," said a senior traffic police officer.

Since the fine is a meagre Rs 100, it is not an adequate deterrent to defaulters who continue to travel in the tinted vehicles. In the first six weeks of the year, as many as 20,000 vehicles were booked for tinted glasses, with a majority of these repeat offenders. This shows that despite being caught, Delhiites are mostly unmindful of the rules.

Meanwhile, a lot of the errant vehicle owners claimed that they were unaware that their tinted glasses were beyond the permissible limit. They claimed that they had asked for tinted films to be put within the guidelines given by the traffic police and had been assured that their vehicles fell under the guidelines. However, they were in for a rude shock on Thursday when they realized the tint exceeded the permissible limit and had to pay challan amounts, they claimed. At present, the permissible limit dictates that there should be at least 70% transparency in the front and rear windows while 50% transparency is required on the side windows.

The 141 car owners, who were issued notices, had to hand in either their registration certificate or their driving licence along with the usual Rs 100 challan slapped on defaulters. These defaulters will have to report to the area traffic inspector where the violation was recorded within 72 hours for inspection of their vehicle. If the directions are not followed, the matter will be forwarded to the court, traffic cops had claimed.

Default Traffic violators in Delhi to be taught a lesson

The next time you get caught driving drunk or violating traffic rules, you might be sent back to school! In an innovative move, Delhi Traffic Police has drawn up a "correctional course" for those who violate traffic rules. They could be send for a 15-day course -four hours daily-learning "human behaviour while on road" and watching films relating to "road safety".

For me the first line itself spells out the sorry state of affairs

Despite numerous drives launched by the traffic police, cars with tinted glass can be regularly spotted on the roads of the capital.

This will end up being another drive if not implemented seriously. I do not understand why it needs to be done during off peak hours - a large number of vehicles which do not meet the law might be off the roads during this time owing to being parked in offices etc.

100 INR does not cut it , thats what you almost pay for a kilo of onions now , a fine needs to hurt , it cannot have a 'notional' value and consequence.

Talking Re: New Delhi - Violators won’t get away easily now

If they want the fines to be taken seriously, just make them pay a percentage of their monthly income as fine, like they do in finland

If that isn't possible,
a percentage of the cost of the car they are driving would also work!

Like somebody posted earlier in the thread, we have enough rules to keep things straight, but the enforcement is what needs to beefed up. Have we already forgotten the Bandra-Worli Sea Link fiasco between a traffic cop and a local MLA?
