Default Kerala govt to ban ICE in car ? For real ?

A few weeks ago, when in Kerala, I was told by some friends that there was a news item in the papers as per which, the Kerala Govt was planning to ban music systems in cars, due to being distractive to the driver, leading to accidents. Or some reason on these lines.

Is this for real ? I mean, is having ICE in the car against the MV Act ?

And how are they planning to implement this ? Stop cars and check for ICE and remove them ? Or heavy fines for having ICE in cars ? What about cars registered outside Kerala and which are temporarily in Kerala ?

Any Mallu tbhp-ians have more info on this ?

I haven't heard about this. But I'm a bit of in the unaware world when it comes to news these days.
But even then, I should've known by now.
Ridiculous! Utter nonsense! Oh my god, should I carry on?

typical CPI viewpoint
dont let anyone enjoy anything anytime for all time..
sad
hope its not true because I dont think there is anything in the Motor Vehicles Act to support such a move and a car is an item of personal property.
I dont think they can implement such a draconian rule since we are after all a democracy not a dictatorship or totalitarian state..

I do remember that 6 years back, if i am able to recall correctly, bangalore govt then had proposed a similar ban which did not come into effect.

How can these politicians get such idea's, either they are all jobless are just stupid.

too late

-1) Remove the illiterate govt
0) Ban air horns first
1) Ban govt vehicles which smokes too much
2) All ministers to pass SSLC exam or go for Kya aap 5vin thing show!

And bit OT, heard they are gonna take over the Gold Links (Golf Club which is 100yrs plus) and build some building as they don't want any to practice the game white blokes play/ed.

Talk about 100% literate state! Shame!

Whaaaaaat? I had to read this again to make sure I read it right the first time. I hope this is just a rumour.

The problem is, I wouldn't put it past the current govt. To do something downright stupid and puerile (for lack of a better word) as this.

A few years back, there was a similar rumour. But then it turned out that the ICE ban was for city-plying buses only (not even for taxis). I don't think anything came of it anyway.

Now we all need to pray hard that no stupid loud-ICE-playing private car-drivers are involved in any accidents anytime soon.

And I just broke my bank and ordered a speaker upgrade last week :(

@e_l, patiencewins, a man and his ICE will never be parted

*touching wood and keeping fingers crossed*
