Haha. That is funny stuff.

If people see something that is out of the ordinary, his is bound to happen. Let it be India or any other country.

Interesting article. And I do agree with some, that our curiosity should not be a source of inconvienience to others. I guess there is a very thing line in seeking a photograph and information and trying to get into the personal domian. These are sensitive issues and am sure that over a period of time, people will over come the curiosity factor and let these high end cars owners drive at peace.

I do remember, the first time I saw a Toyato Land Crusier in the US (back in 96), I just stood there and was admiring the beauty. The driver was kind of nervous with me staring the monster and I was not sure why. Later on, my friends told me that it was like #1 car in the theft list.

There is absolutely no problem in clicking pictures of exotic / supercars on public roads.

However, taking pictures without permission on private property is a strict no no. Also, to protect the privacy of supercar owners, you'll see most supercars on Team-BHP with their numberplates blanked out.

If one was to make a public nuisance of oneself while persuing and photographing other peoples cars then the law needs to step in.

Taking pictures and discussing the cars is one thing but to start speculating on the owners choices or finance or connections is definitely an invasion of privacy.

On the other hand when you drive on a public road there is no law that can prevent others from taking pics of the car so I don't really understand the reason to black out the reg plates. If the owner was concerned about privacy then why was he driving the car on a public road.

True.
We have a right to snap a pic of a car which is on public roads but just we have no right to disclose the Privacy of the car's owner.
If they dont want people to take snaps of it, The simplest way is to keep your car in garage for ever!

I agree with some comments, especially the point that we shouldn't speculate on the source of income etc. Gunny's comments that we shouldn't click pictures on the road is impractical though. Press in Europe and U.S. get spyshots on public roads too. Trespassing is obviously wrong, but getting arrested for clicking pics on public roads is

On a similar note, isn't DC violating copyrights of pictures and publishing them on the paper without taking permission from the individuals?

Well, i guess this article just goes to show why we have additional rules especially for the Team-BHP Supercars & Imports section that have always been strictly enforced. For eg.

  • No pictures taken on Private Property shall be posted without permission.
  • Blank out the numberplates of vehicles when posting pictures.
  • Do not disclose the identity of the owners (therefore eliminating a lot of the possible personal and irrelevant discussions)
  • etc

See the Team-BHP Supercar section rules here : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/super-...g-section.html (Rules to be strictly followed while posting in this section)

Also, seeing the first comment in that Deccan article, made me think of this thread : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...must-read.html (Exotic Owners Code of Conduct! Must Read)

Guys the pic of Hummer and Bentley was taken by me and i have not taken it in some public propoerty.
Hummer pic was taken on the Road when it was parked in front of the owners office and the Bentley pic was taken in my college and i don't think that my college chairman does have any problem with it as the driver opens the whole car and shows it to every one when requested...

EDIT:
I guess i have not blanked the number plate of hummer as it was one of my first posts..
