Since this post didn't gather much attention (perhaps not appropriate there):

Looks like the Police and Govt has again found a soft target!!
YET AGAIN.

Isn't is surprising how EFFECTIVE our traffic police can be when stupid resolutions like these are passed.

But when there is a real demand / emergency situation - during traffic jams, during red light jumps, during accidents, during road crimes committed by public transport, these same guys (=traffic police) are hardly to be found.

Enforcing the low beam, no horns, lane driving, ... - again never done by Traffic police.

Do we need an order passed by Supreme court for each and every nuance, so that it gets enforced by the our grossly inefficient and ineffective police?
Should a law made in 1850 be still valid today, and passed by Supreme Court so that everyone gets into enforcement frenzy?

I hope someone files a PIL to direct the manufacturers to not incorporate the high beams on lights since the police cant enforce its usage.

^ Yes, and since high beam driving only encourages higher speed at night, whereas low beam will compel you to drive slow - I am all in for it!

I am sorry but that idea is really stupid you have idiots wearing dark clothes jumping in-front of you on unlit roads without high beams they are going to get killed.

Not sure if the request for such a law was for idiots or normal human beings. Ban High bean is a better option to avoid manya ccidentds.

Idiots jump in even during day time.
But of course we can't pass a law which enforces police to keep the sun from setting.

Unlit roads is a good point. Another case for a PIL. All streets to be well lit. Drive against Municipal corps. I wonder WHY issues like these are never taken up!!

Thankyou for signing. That idea you came up with is beautiful an oh-so-simple. I wish I had thought of that! Anyhow, it is a great suggestion. Now to act on it:
  1. We need a Supreme Court lawyer who is proficient in Civil and Constitutional cases. I'm not saying the Bhushans, but somebody with aptitude. (Mr. Manikjeet has kindly offered his parents/grandparents' help. Until that materialises... I am still on the lookout. Please refer someone in the NCR area only. I reside in NOIDA.)
  2. When we get to the expense part, I will share it with you kind bhpians on what/how much is needed.

Just signed the petition.
This is a laughable judgement passed towards soft targets.
It is like banning internet because terrorists communicate through email!

From the ruling its apparent that the Supreme Court has already considered the pros & cons of sun films, tinted glass and finalized the judgement. Supreme Court will never allow VLT beyond the permissible limits detailed in CMV 100 (2).

Its true that most manufacturers already provide a slightly tinted front, rear & side glasses, with VLT varying between 75% to 95%. Now if somebody applies sun film on already tinted glass, it would exceed the VLT prescribed by the rules. In such a case, how to ensure the VLT limit is not breached when sun films are applied, considering that the tinted glass VLT varies across different manufacturers?

If we can provide a generic answer to this question, then probably we have case against the ruling.

Just one question:
Have the tints from cars of Hon. Chief Justice Shri S.H. Kapadia, Hon. Judge Shri A.K. Patnaik and Hon. Judge Shri Swatanter Kumar been removed, Or from the cars of VIP's VVIPS & whatever they call them in this country.
Shouldn't they be setting an example by doing so, or this blanket ban is ONLY for COMMON man.
Our Judiciary system is becoming such a joke now.

Signed the petition.

Raab rakha.

Signed. Is it true that the courts are on vacation and a review petition can be filed only after in late June?

Cheers,

IS there any option left for Civil Disobedience movement in India?

We really need to stop these idiotic lopsided laws. (like Passing the tinted glasses but banning the films!)

Did they thought about the extra fuel being burned daily to keep up with the heat without the tints. Rather than enforcing the already laid out rules they have to supersede those and make new rules. Traffic police rather than regulating traffic are made a revenue/bribe generating agency. I see these monkeys running around like beggers to take 10rs from commercial vehicles, at the same time when there is chaos at the signal.
