Sorry... Its not funny at all. Do you know what happens if you rundown a cop, even by mistake? Unless you are with the high and mighty, you will end up in so much trouble it it wouldn't even resemle a joke in any remote sense.

I am not taking any moral high ground here, but just be aware of the consequences.

I agree cops in the middle of the road dancing through traffic is irritating to say the least.

Thats not very nice language bblost, there are better ways of saying things in a forum.

Also, lets not act like we never break the law.

I do not agree. How about overloaded trucks, auto-drivers, BMTC folks, also the gentlemen who are in flashy cars and driving without any sense?

I am also using a 2 wheeler with TN regn. (however KA Tax paid), got couple of times and paid 100Rs for not changing the regn and couple of times came out without any fine. It is up to the cop to decide.

Same here. no under the table trnx. Got challans.

Nitin last time there was such a pic' in the newspapers the cop was pulled up.
Its just a mere try,since the cop for all you know might be riding a confiscated bike.

Default good job

I think we should actively try to take pics of these guys doing nasty things.

I used to see them on bike going to Bar afer Bar in the evenings and collecting their hafta. If anyone could take a video of it and post it on youtube, it will expose them. Surely it will have an impact.

Another idea is the have hidden camera and have them catch you on these road side checkings. You can catch them asking for money!! Another classic youtube video that will be...

Riju, interesting you should post a pic of cope riding without a helmet. I pulled up next to 2 cops on a bike and the rider only had his constable hat on. When I asked him why he didn't have a helmet on and how he expected people to respect his authority when he flouts the law, pat came the reply "ide helmet saar (this is the helmet)" pointing to his hat! After that he decided to go on the offensive when I threatened to report him for breaking the law. Had it not been for a green signal, a most wonderful argument would have played out right there.
