a lot of the company busses and a lot of autos running in bangalore miss the middle letter say with a number of XY-01-D-9876

Would have only XY-01-9876 on the number plate.

This is a scam very common in bangalore.

The way this scam works is most transport companies register all the vehicals in the same rto with the same last 4 digits.

Then they pay tax for one vehical and take the reciept then use a xerox machine for the tax receipt covering the middle letter D and take some currupt officers endorsement on the RC Book xerox and carry it in the busses / autos so if they are stoped they show this and get away with it.

This is done a lot the reson being pay tax for only one vehical while running multiple vehicals.

When the law enforcers break the law.



P.s.: I haven't whitened his number plates. He simply didn't have any numbers on them and also please note that out here in Hyderabad helmets are compulsory

Note for mods: Didn't want to start a new thread and found this somewhat similar, hence posted here

Great shot Suren! No helmet, no license plates, talking on his cell-phone whilst riding a bike in the fast lane...probably no PUC, wonder if the bike even has papers? What a great shot! This should be sent to the news papers, seriously!

Good job,Suren!! I strongly recommend sending the pic to TOI. They'll publish it for sure. Along with some cop-bashing,it'll be worth looking out for in the papers.
How do these morons change gears? Don't any of these phones come with a hands-free set?

Either underworld type or police encounter type (although don't think Hyderabad police have any such units!) Either way, best policy was to steer clear.
The guy could be a gunman to a minister/ MLA. I had a real encounter with one such guy.

So what Sreenivass? He could be anyone, but, am of the opinion that none is above the law. Hmmm... but to clarify, would like to tell you all he was, was just a regular cop, period. Regarding, stopping him (an encounter) we did our bit. Trust me on that> We rolled our Glasses down and gave him a piece of our mind.

This is what I saw on my way to work this morning.



The helmet can be faintly seen in the red circle marked in the pic
Before I get flamed for having taken a snap while driving , let me tell you that the road was virtually free and there was no traffic behind me, I was in crawl mode and hence could take the snap.

Excellent pics, Suren. Me too a daily victim of the pathetic state of traffic in Hyderabad. Drivers here have the least respect for traffic rules and IMO, the law enforcers have to bear part of the blame. And your pics illustrate this point so clearly. Request you to please send these pics to TOI.

These guys think being police or whatever makes them some kind of above the law. Good that you guys let him know what you thought.

Default Highway peril

Here's the outcome of a common illegal activity that we've frequently discussed here. About a week ago, an autorickshaw sputtering along towards Bandra in the fast-but-one lane on Mumbai's Western Express Highway had a tyre blowout just before the Santacruz flyover. It swayed and screeched to a halt but was effectively trapped with vehicles of all sorts whizzing by. I was in a No. 181 bus that had slowed down on account of this.



Autorickshaw stranded on the Western Express Highway, Mumbai

I was afraid there would be an accident, and sure enough, it happened the very next minute. A speeding taxi was not able to stop in time and gave a biker (also travelling in the fast lane) a glancing blow that sent him spinning and skidding on his side for a good 20 metres. He literally had his shirt half ripped off and was shaken, but he staggered to his feet so I assume he was thankfully unhurt. Luckily he was wearing a helmet, and I'm sure after this he'll continue to do so instead of hanging it on the handlebar as so many bikers do.

I alighted from the bus at the nearest stop but the situation had resolved itself by then. Even if one wished to help, it would have been practically impossible to access the fast lane safely. Which made me wonder what's the best way to go to someone's assistance in such a situation without endangering one's own life? There were no policemen to be seen, and it seemed impossible to get to the middle of the highway, especially as the passing vehicles showed no sign of slowing down.
