Default ICE Show-Offs, Beware of Cops!

It was reported today on Headlines Today that loud car audio will be dealt with very seriously in Delhi. LBM, I hope you're listening.

That makes me wonder, were they liberal all this while? I have seen cops punishing a few offenders who loved to show off their ICE in Bengaluru.

I would like to know - what is the criterion to rate a system "loud"? Is it that the cops can fine anyone whose music can be heard outside?

This has always been there. If playing LOUD music the cops do fine. I remmber my friends being fined 8-10 years ago. I too was stopped once but sweet talked my way out of it.
The fine is Rs.1000.

the cops have the right to fine anyone for havin distracting lights or sounds on their car , i remeber having read this somewhere in the IMV ( Indian Motor Vehicle Act ). the IMIV as a set of rule is pretty nicely framed but its always the enforcements which lags behind. So all the strobes and louds thumpers are actually asking for trouble.

Sometimes its even wierd, i remember Trivadrum cops arresting a Tata Sierra guy for having put a big sticker on his rear window which read "LAW BREAKER"

well firstly the music in the car is for you to listen too.
Not the neighbourhood. So dampen it properly. No problems with any cops.

I wonder how many auto wala's will get fined for blaring away music on their contraptions.

At least we pay some sort of tax for having these luxuries(?) in our cars. I wonder if they even have a tax applicable for them. Leave alone paying for it.

This happened more than 7 years back, i know the guy we were studying in the same institution at that time. He was made to remove that sticker then & there at Vellayambalam junction. But he was not arrested.

Ya my cousion was also question what the hell is this in your car.

For me I never play loud music with windows rolled down. I prefer music for myself and not for people outside. But it feels good to have such power at stock like a sports car.

Thank goodness, some morons never grow up and they want to just show off to world what they are listening to (as if anyont gives two hoots to it).
Its just plain nuisance.

Hope they come out harshly on similar offences like those flashing strobing lights - some idiots think that putting that stuff will make their vehicles take off like and aeroplane.
They seem to have forgotten that : flashy lights do not, an airplane fly, maketh

It only adds to confusion and chaos on the road, and irritates other drivers.

It is MANDATORY to have an audio system on National permit passenger vehicles (central rules). It is illegal to have audio systems on stage carriages (Kerala state rule - applicable to stage carriages - route buses plying within Kerala).

Private cars are governed by national / central rules. And central rules are, AFAICT, silent on this.

So, pray your copships, under what provision (section, rule and clause please!!) are we guilty?

Guess that's what the cops are saying, too. Keep to within your car - Let the outside world not hear it. Esp the mega-bass.

Else you will have the cops 'Thump' you !
