How pleasant is to read this happening. I always liked chennai traffic police during my four years stay there. Yes they do take money (as low as 5 Rs ) on every chance they get, but otherwise they are hardworking in that hot sun, unlike Kerala cops.

A big cheers to Chennai traffic police, my cynical mind telling that they might have taken money from that rash driver though - But who cares?

If only we had efficient systems like this in every metro. I have been living for the past 2 years in a city which knows no 'sense' of traffic - an orderly system is still not in question. Yes, I am talking about Hyderabad.

Default devil's advocate

Let me play devil's advocate here. Would any of you like to have the police stop you just because you got a little close to some guy driving slow in the passing lane who refused to move over and get out of your way? My point is, where is the due process? How are the police to know who is the real culprit in this case? You all assume the man who calls the police is the man in the right. What if someone calls the police on you when he is dead wrong and you are right and he is just getting revenge on you? One way these things get settled in India is by who drives the more expensive car and has the most clout. No offense meant to the thread author but this incident tends to violate people's rights. Again, where is the due process?

I am not going to debate the first part of your post. coming to the second part. I don't believe people can get so enraged with anyone on the road to go ahead and call the police, especially if he is the offender. If you are talking of a serious crime, yes that is possible, but not for a small incident like this on the road. The SI who called me did ask for my details & if he had felt that i was the offender, he had the option to get me on to that scene as well. So, the complainant word need not necessarily be right. The police have a job to do in determining who could be the offender. There are certain parameters which could be applied to help them. Of course, they could not have fined him (maybe they did). At least he was stopped & warned, this very fact would deter him to drive cautiously in the future.

Default Okay

Glad you chose not to debate, I was not accusing you. We agree mostly. However, I have had people try to use authorities to take revenge upon me. It did not work but it was uncomfortable and took a long time to clear up. Have a good day

I am writing this from the Wilson Garden Traffic police station(My Swift was rear ended by a call center Indica last night) and guess what, the experience has been really good.

THe station in charge took a particular liking to me after asking my educational background, work etc and treated me like king !! The only prob was, he asked my salary(I told him the truth) and he called all his subordinates and said - look at this successful young man, and blurted out my salary to all there. What an embarassing situation to be !! And I am sure some of them earn more than double what I earn, through different, ahem....channels. In fact the ASI also asked me this question last night.

These guys think IT guys are overpaid, so I told him about the rent, my car loan etc to give him a reality check.

Detailes story in a thread later, but I will sign off with this line.

The station officer called me and said - Young man, we are all here to help you and I will make sure that you leave my police station happy.

Kudos to Mr. Pasha !!

Good Luck Kuttappan. [sarcasm mode off]

well I had similar experience at Madiwala (B'lore) police station. My Bike was stolen from my apartment, I lodged a complaint, cops there were friendly, very well so far.
A week later I found my bike dumped in a nearby street, informed the police, they asked me to bring bike to station.
There started these usual Qns they asked you.
-where you work? -IT.
-very well paid? - I gambled, no am just a trainee
-so what you will finish training and leave abroad, wont you - No, not really.
well, they got a rough idea on my income and gave two options.

a) go through all the processes, courts blah blah and get your bike back in proper channel (read ages)
b) Give us 3K and take the bike straight away, we will close the case.

So I asked them, I lost my bike, I found my bike and I give you 3k. Is that right? yes that is.

End:- I had no choice, I was about leave Blore in a week, so paid 1000 Rs and took my bike. Personally, I would call Blore police the worst I have seen.

Well i actualy have found the cops in TN to be a lot better than the once in bangalore. In bangalore i know of them taking action only in case of medical emergency.
My friend was taking his mom to the hospital from coorg as she had a heart ailment. When he reached bangalore he jumped a signal and was stopped by cops. When they saw why he had done it they escorted his car from Mysore road till Narayana hrudayalaya. They got all the signals cleared for him and also used to wire the cops to clear the roads up for him.

Wonderful job done by the cops,maddy. Those are the things that make a difference to the community. The cops do their part,and every single citizen will stand up and work with them for the best results.

Kuttappan, hope everything works out fine. Good to know that the SI took care of things,and worked in full earnest.
