Default Re: Weird, Wacky & Dangerous Motorcycle Modifications!

Saw this on the way back from office yesterday. Clicked 2 pics. The top of the stack almost touched the electric/telephone cables crossing the road. The guy went off-balance twice when negotiating humps on the way....simply crazy I must say.

Mods please move it to appropriate section. Could not find a more appropriate thread, hence posting it here.

I have seen this method of transporting gas cylinders very frequently on Mumbai roads. This is an accident which is waiting to happen. The nozzle of the cylinder juts out of the taxi boot dangerously. Wonder if it is legal to transport gas in this manner. I have never seen a cop flag down a taxi carrying such a load.

There is something more in in than just the gas cylinder. The taxi seems bent to the left. That surely is an accident waiting to happen. What if the cylinder is not tied too tight and falls of obstructing a vehicle behind. Have seen these types of loads being carried on highways at high speeds as well. What if a biker is behind that cab and the load falls of. That could be fatal.

The cops SHOULD do something, but if they get time from hiding behind the bushes and catching people for tints and stuff like that.

Improper transportation of gas cylinder is an offence under the Explosives act.
But going by how common it is to transport cylinders in this manner in our country, cops don't bother to check if all safety regulations are being adhered to.

Depends on what type of gas the cylinder is carrying. For non-flammable gases it is not an offence. Commercial grade nitrogen is supplied in such cylinders and nitrogen is not flammable. Just an example.

Thanks for adding that Vikram. Though the rules I have referred to are about LPG cylinders (especially domestic), the offence part is actually more about the correct procedure to secure and transport it.
Probably we need a separate thread to discuss that as there would have been occasions, we might have used our cars to transport domestic LPG.

Tread Wear ? The Tyres are almost thread bare!

This truck was driving ahead of me on the busy Dadar Tulsi Pipe Road yesterday during evening peak hours. If you look carefully, both the right rear tyres are completely worn out.

During off peak hours, these guys would be barelling down the same stretch with construction debris.

When will the traffic police take notice of such 'vehicle fitness' parameters and ban such vehicles from the roads? Incidentally, we (the truck ahead and me) crossed 2 police 'nakabandis' - one at mahim and one further down at SV road and the police were only interested in stopping two wheelers and the occasional car with tinted windows.

Is there any "facebook page" for mumbai police where we can highlight such cases?

That's because the cops are busy flagging down cars for tinted films.

Off topic: I was stopped on the expresway yesterday for doing 90kmph where the speed limit is 80kmph. Car's going faster then me drove off, I stopped. When I asked why other car's were not stopped the cop gave some crap about how when a net is cast in the ocean, some fish escape and some don't! I bluntly told him that in such a case it's better to just drive off even when you are flagged down by the cops. He settled for Rs.100 without even asking if I had a licence and gave me 'advise' to stick to 80kmph. Whose to tell them that in any other country of the world, I wouldn't have been stopped for doing 90kmph in a 80kmph zone.

I don't think that's accurate. In Australia you have speeding offences starting with ranges from10kmph above limit, 30kmph above limit etc. This means if you drive at 90kmph on a 80kmph zone, you will be caught and fined + incur points on your license.

Even though its a separate discussion if it's practical to retain 80kmph all the time on an express way, a limit is a limit, and cops are fully correct in stopping and fining.
