police is very afraid of these auto rickshaw drivers due to their unions. These unions are politically supported and are very strong. One of my friend told me 25% auto rickshaws are being rented out by cops only hence auto rickshaw drivers don't feel they have to follow any rules. IMO, there should be some kind of campaign to teach auto rickshaw drivers to follow rules then only they might magically understand they do have to follow traffic rules.

btw, I stay in thane city and I think cops here are better, nobody has ever fined me without mistake.

I live in Calcutta and do not employ a driver. But sometimes I need one, when my parents go to their physicians for their medical check-ups while I remain busy at my office. The fellow who usually gives me the service is an auto-rickshaw driver himself but has a valid license for four wheelers as well. He says that most of the auto-rickshaws plying here in certain routes give a good amount to the police, in return of getting some special privileges. Beside, many auto rickshaws are owned by the policemen themselves, in the name of their wives and relatives. So it is not surprising that these auto rickshaw drivers pays much respect to the cops. And I have also that the policemen usually ignore the private motor vehicles for any minor offense. They pay more attention to the taxis and other commercial vehicles.

Question Re: List of Traffic offences and applicable fine

Well I was driving with my family on NH1 toward amritsar. Just when we crossed Ambala, 2 cops (not traffic cops) were checking cars at random. When they checked mine everything (DL,RC, PUC etc) was in order and I thought I'll proceed now happily, but then cop asked if I have first-aid kit with me, which I didn't. Now he could see a big smile on his face. It was the 1st time that first-aid kit was asked about in my 11yrs of driving. He told that he'll have to challan me. Finally I settled it in Rs.100 as I had to cover a long 250km of journey on same day.

Now my query is, if not keeping first-aid kit can result in a challan or not. If yes, what should be contents of proper first-aid kit (from legal perspective).

The scene is pretty good in Mangalore. Not many bad cops around here and they don't stop unnecessarily and fine you. But its a pain and always troublesome when i'm in Bangalore or metros like Pune. In my experience. Mumbai was still okay.

How is it in Delhi? Do the cops pull you over and fine you unnecessarily?

Witnessed this couple of days ago - a traffic cop stopped a bike for carrying 3 people. The bikers seemed to college students who got into an arguement mode with the cop. By then a good amount of onlookers (yours truly included) had gathered to see what's going on.

After a few minutes the bikers proferred a 100 rs note to let them go. Call it the Anna Hazare effect or fear of the onlookers or good old honesty, the cop refused and challaned them. We need more of these type of cops.

An update: Article

I really hope traffic fines are increased 20 times. The current ones are peanuts and not helpful in deterring people from committing an offence. For example, a traffic light violation is just Rs. 100/-.

Lately I have been seeing a lot of ads placed on newspapers by traffic cops on matters like window tints and improper name plates etc. I would advise fellow Delhi BHPians to take care and check once again if they have proper documents with them in the car and that they are not expired or something. Cops might be in a mood to have mass challan fest in a few days time.

International trade fair is also starting from 19th Nov'11 in Delhi which might see a lot of public transport users taking out their private cars after a long time with many things, like documents, unchecked. Just my thought.

I hope you meant the "Number Plates".

By the way, I liked the hike in Traffic Violation fines. A good move to improve traffic sense in Delhi region.

Default Traffic fines set to increase 10 fold

As per today's news in TOI, traffic violation fines are set to be increased 10 fold. Here is the link to the article.
10-fold rise in fines for traffic violations - The Times of India

Much needed and welcome step. I'm not sure how many offences would reduce, but the pinch in the pocket would defnitely be higher, which may prompt people to follow rules.. I hope this does not lead to more under the table dealings resulting in an unauthorized windfall for the police.

Today TOI has an article about making jail term mandatory, hitherto only fines were levied.
Hope the Central govt makes the punishment uniform across the country.

i support this increment in fine. Although, i would like a practical speed limit and not 40-50 kmph on good roads.
