Ah. The age old solution to all traffic issues. 'Mamool'
But issigonis, In a democracy like ours we make the law. And if we don't like a law, we have the right to speak up against it.

The law is a bit weird as wildsdi and some others have pointed out. What's wrong with a handsfree set? If its because talking itself is a distraction, then by the same logic, the driver should not talk to his passengers at all.

Default Traffic Offence

I don't know about B'bay, but out here in H'bad, while getting back your documents, the compulsory 'torture' that one has to undergo, apart from the fines, is the 4 hours of compulsory audio-visual session in the RTA, about traffic rules and repercussions. It is indeed difficult to forget this session, the next time you wish to break any rule.. it works

I gave up my driving licence on demand and received a Form L, which says that I should report to the Andheri Court on a specific date.I have never believed in 'paying off' a government servant and on this occasion waited patiently till he examined my licence, noted down my car's registration no. and also my mobile no., before handing me the challan ( Form 'L' TEM).

As per this Form 'L' TEM, I have been booked for the offence of 250 (A) 177 MVA. On enquiry the policeman told me that nowadays all drivers booked for using their mobiles while driving are to go to the court and retrieve their licences.

I felt so bad about violating the law that I didn't ask for further details.

Can anyone here help by informing me about the process from here onwards?
