One can pull the RC of the vehicles registered in one's own name only in Digilocker (since it is linked to Aadhar name) . Hence if somebody is driving a car registered to spouse's / parent's/ others name, they still need to carry the original RC as I understand.

I have not yet seen the option to pull emission certificate in Digilocker.

Tell me about it

Earlier there was only one each on both sides of road (nr. Nandi Toyota), now they have added two each. That too one of them is three piece pipe setup. First of all that stretch does not need speed breaker, but more reflectors on the edge or rumblers at most.

Bangalore is not known as a land of speedbreakers for nothing. We have them in all sizes at all places. Two rubber inserts have come up even on broken Whitefield road around HP petrol pump. We all just love it.

Man, I was just thinking of the same thing when I came to work today. After a long time, I took the stretch between Benniganahalli and Brigade Metropolis, just to get stuck in a stupid jam because the metro workers had blocked the 1.5 lane road and made it 1 lane near HP petrol bunk. In the middle of all these, I see a board saying 'Metro Work in progress, Go Slow' and a badly laid rubber speed breaker. The country wont progress until common sense is injected as a vaccination to such dimwits. What do they expect? We will rip across the stretch at triple digit speeds?

I believe cops will run a check on the DL to verify any violations. So in the scenario even if the person shows the digital copy he/she will still be caught.

There is an option to upload documents in the app. So you can upload your emission certificate there I think. I need to try and check this

Edit : I checked and see an option to download the emission certificate. You need to provide the vehicle number and it pulls the document

Yes there is that option; but that won't have any linking to aadhaar and one can upload any documents, even others RC/DL copies using this method. So it no longer becomes associated with Aadhaar for authenticity. Needs clarity on how and where the features are to be used.

Edit:

Just saw your update. Thanks for checking this out. They have also made some other updates with needs to be checked out.

After whitetop bhagya, we now have speedbreaker bhagya.

I do not quite understand why they were required in the first place. Now I have to seriously reconsider travelling by ring road. What used to take 40 minutes for the commute, took 1 hour 15 minutes today. Unless they remove these, the map will show Red round the clock. Nobody asked for "Give me Red"

According to BTP twitter (link here) , this was done to reduce accidents.

Metro work has started on bannerghatta road. I saw barricades put up from sagar hospital signal until the spar hypermarket stretch (towards nimhans).

I believe that speed breakers should be built in a way to ensure that traffic is able to negotiate it at the speed that it permitted in that spot. In most cases speed breakers are more of vehicle breakers since they need to be negotiated at, say, 5kph. Unless one is aware of their existence this may result in people braking hard which may result in rear ending. It should be mandatory to have warnings of the existence of speed breakers, multiples of them if the allowed speed in the area is higher. This would give sufficient time for braking.

Then what is the point of the speedbreaker, if you needn't reduce speed to negotiate it? Speedbreakers are localized traffic calming devices; then need to result in speed reduction.

Having said that, we do have guidelines for speedbreakers: https://www.scribd.com/doc/41858526/...Speed-Breakers. Anybody's guess what percentage of them in Bangalore and elsewhere are compliant. :-)

Agree, but mindless positioning add to the chaos. On a lighter note they are mostly used and positioned as a jamming device than a calming device.

Obviously speed breakers are meant for reducing speed . But not for vehicles coming to a grinding halt!. This normally happens if there are two or three close together (whatever it is called technically).

Having said that, the only reason I can think of for these kind of speed breakers is that during very less traffic flow (say at midnight), I have seen some vehicles not even bothering to slow down on single speed breakers and jumping over.

BBMP considers all possible scenarios .
