You should try contacting the Traffic Police Station in that vicinity, if you cannot find such a place in the map.

4. How many people in India follow speed limits when it comes to cruising in highways? Especially Kerala is a place with hardly any 'highways'. Here it takes ~5 hours to travel 200 km. And lo we have speed guns flashing at you!

I am not saying that speed limit is insane but I find lack of goodwill. Sorry, but the whole idea looks severely misplaced
You were driving over the speed limit. You were fined. May be you can change your driving to be within limits.

Questions 2, 3 and 4 just sound like a severe case of whining / sour grapes.

Of course speed cameras are for minting money - from traffic offenders. At least the next time someone who got penalized once decides to break the speed limit, they will think twice because of the potential monetary loss.

Why should everyone else who drive within the speed limit be inconvenienced with speed breakers just because you cannot abide by the law? If you are so fond of speed breakers, I suggest you shift to Bangalore where you have speed breakers every 100 meters.

And sorry, 'goodwill' for what?

Thanks Viju for pointing that out. Hey, I'm responsible on road to fellow drivers & pedestrians & will make it a point to continuously improve it. I was not whining over getting penalised, rather introspecting the very aspect of it.

I chose to differ. I would like to believe that in a democracy, laws are to to people by the people. In that perspective 'minting money' is anti-people. There are 100 sane ways of doing this rather than installing a speed gun just after a choked town and restricting the speed limit to 80 (SH). I hope you read what I meant by goodwill now.

Getting back to the point, is it normal to get a memo from two camera at the same place?

If monetary penalties are required to ensure that the people abide by the law of the land, I don't see anything wrong in it.

Can you please list out a few of these 100 sane ways to ensure people follow the speed limits?

If two cameras are placed in a locality, and you are trapped in both cameras, yes, I don't see what is abnormal in being fined twice. Just because the names suggest that the cameras are in the same locality, it need not mean they are placed next to each other. In any case, you are not going to get a resolution from Team-BHP for your grievance. You should be complaining to the concerned authorities.

Last Christmas holidays, I stayed at a relative's place in Palarivattom and almost every day we would drive on the Ernakulam bypass to and from Lulu Mall 3.5 kms away.

Every single time we made this short, sometimes crawling trip, we would come across a horrific accident on the bypass. No, not an ordinary smack to the bumper, but an accident with windshield and window glass on the road, the front of the car entirely smashed in and the driver and passengers holding their heads covered with glass, looking dazed and usually having superficial wounds. I have seen everything from small hatches to BMW & Mercedes cars in this condition.

Coming from Bangalore, I am used to getting dents and scrapes. But this experience left me completely gobsmacked.

I would like to know from those in Kerala what the heck is going on here.

The new website for paying fines online is registered under the Motor Vehicles Department and not the Kerala Police website as was done about a year ago.

The new website is in the link below and once there click on the red link on the top left corner to pay your fines.

http://keralamvd.gov.in/

Once the red button is clicked it takes you to another website called smartweb.

https://smartweb.keralamvd.gov.in/km...mvdchkhome.php

I just paid a 400 rupee fine for traveling at 92kmph whence the speed limit on that stretch was 90kmph.

That stretch from Vytilla to Lulu mall has the maximum number of intersections per kilometer from both sides onto the main track compared to any other road in Kerala. Only those who regularly frequent this road know the pitfalls on this stretch.

Heard that there is an app called 'Drive Easy' which is tailored for Kerala roads. I was also informed that the locations in app is marked according to the inputs of RTI replies of various govt organizations. Have any gizmo freaks tried it?

If it is in Southern part of Kerala, I may have got caught when making a trip to Sabari Mala. And I had a driver for the long drive .

Came back to say: I paid the fine. The web site URL was: www.payment.keralapolice.gov.in/epayment.com . Perhaps it is better to check the MVD web site as well. Looks like cameras are operated by K.P and the MVD separately.

Hi sachinpk, I too paid the fine as well. No point cribbing about it.
Karackad should be somewhere here https://goo.gl/ZFeaug. Also Cameras are operated on lease by Keltron.

Okay. That confirms it. I got the "medicine" on my return from Sabari Mala trip. Most likely at around 10:00-11:00Hrs in the morning. I checked the MVD web site, no charge memos pending for me there. Will pass the message to my "driver friend" as well. Generally I do not crib over such things. At least in KL, so far I have only been charged once for an offence I did NOT do (offence was not wearing the seat belt), where as in all other cases K.P folks have clearly explained to me why they are charging me. Hope that trend continues.. Touchwood.

I just got a speeding ticket from police control room, TVPM City, but couldn't see any options for paying the same. The offence details has notice no,location,date of offence,offence time,reg no and speed.

I don't know how you were charged. Did they actually stop you (after recording the speeding)? Or did you get a notice by post from them? My understanding is that it takes some time (2-3 weeks to a month) for these folks to update the violation on the online portal.

They sent me a notice by post. Date of offence was 10th May 2016. Got the mail exactly after 3 months.

That's a bit strange. My understanding is that when the notice is generated, the same gets updated in their web site database as well. Did the notice have any instruction on how to pay the fine? By sending a money order or some thing like that?

I know that for MV petty cases in which the case has gone to the magistrate court, the fine can be paid using MO. The small part of the MO form in which a message can be written is used to "plead guilty".
