What about government vehicles and other heavy vehicles like the lorries belonging to Nandini Dairy which seemed to be happily camped on the footpath causing nuisance to walkers and footpath riders both . Even these should not be left IMHO.

BHPians, my $0.02

I am not sure if we have a thread for this, but how about a thread that reads "Pics of traffic rule violators" wherein we capture pictures of these violators and post them in there, making sure we don't blur the number plates.

I'm planning to drive all around Pune this saturday just to take pics of violators to upload. I'm not sure about the blurring/ non blurring of number plates. My target is to find 300 violators for that day and upload their pics. guess, shouldn't be much of an hassle with a city like pune.

Make sure you drag a pillion if you are attempting this on a bike. You could be in the news otherwise.
Same in the car. Make sure you have a passenger doing all the clicking.

@ Pervez
I'm planning to mount my camera on a tripod and use the timer option. or better still, have a camcorder and make some videos as well. Fun to see morons breaking laws. But it's a pain as well.

I'm speechless. Where all do you intend to shoot in Pune ?
I'd recommend Wagholi to Pirangut. 30 kms, rush hour, plenty to sketch!
Best of luck.

Well if you have seen the pavement in front of utility building on mg road in bangalore, it is not too small for a Sumo. It sure can take a 407 as well

Well, the usual refrain of a BHPian " Usually don't do that but only this time". Read it umpteen times on this forum. A BHPian is also afterall a mere mortal.
