Yes!
Ask for the reciept. It is us who are promoting corruption. I used to be like this...but have stopped paying the cops anything whatsoever without a proper reciept. Why to knowingly break the law in the first place...example talking on the cellphone....you know its dangerous and illegal but still you do it. Breaking the rules and promoting corruption is not appreciated on teambhp.

Dont crib about cops troubling you...be ready to pay the legal fine if you are breaking the rule.
Those rules are there for your safety and that of others.

what if one doesn't have cash, or has to rush in emergency (girl friend? ) and they insists on going to the station.

Can we ask them to send the challan home, as they do for cases when people drive away after breaking the rules?

@dadude:

1988? you havent even turned 18 yet...why are you driving on public roads (probably with a fake licence....more corruption....hell)....and that too bribing the cops and being proud about it.

Let me make one thing clear dude ... if educated people like us dont give a rats A## about honesty and the rules then who will.

you can give them your liecence take reciept & pay later in police station & get you liecence back
the receipt acts as temporary liecence

In situations of getting caught for offences I feel the best thing is to accept your mistake instead of sitting and arguing. Infact if you are really couteous and respect the cop, he even lets you off without a fine requesting you not to do it again. I have been through these situations quite a number of times and have been let off with paying a single rupee. Why? Because I admitted my mistake. Of coursing the marathi lingo does help at times though

I simply follow 3 steps while dealing with these Mamus
1. Accept your mistake!
2. Try to speak as much Marathi u've learned in those schools days!
3. Simply keep a 50 buck note in ur license....this works mostof the time for me ...he'll simply the thing thats more Important to him give the remaining part back to u!

It was long back, a department guy confirmed that those receipts were duplicate.

Also the media guy raised a question to the commissioner of traffic police on this & was told upto his knowledge none of their men don't indulge in those activities, if found they will be given correct treatment.

I had an incident a few days ago. I made the mistake of parking my car in the no-parking zone and had been to a shop to collect something. In the meanwhile, a policeman had pasted a ticket for Rs. 100 on the driver side window. I just went to the police station some 2-3 days later and paid the fine amount. Ofcourse, after that, I have never parked my car in the no-parking zone, even for 1-2 minutes. I am taking care not to park the vehicle even for alighting fellow passengers. A good lesson well learnt and I am proud of having mended my ways.

Then the onus is on them. Sadly, that is something we cannot determine at that time. The least we can do is be honest from our side atleast.

You know, it's easy to say we should be honest and pay up and not break rules. To begin with, it's slightly harder to part with your money when the time comes. But there's another issue. Do you care about sticking to the letter and spirit of the law when those who frame them can't even keep up basic infrastructure? We pay billions in taxes, and look at the state of our roads. Do we deserve Hummer-testing potholes? Or flooded streets?

I dont know about you guys, but I try my best to be a decent, courteous driver on the roads. But when I look at the price of fuel, the taxes we pay, and the excise-inflated price of our cars, I could strangle a few politicians/babus/cops.

I know the feeling, but in the end 'HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY'.
Screw the politicians, the babus and the cops.

First of all I follow all traffic rules, always use seat belts, never talk over a phone while driving, always remain in posted speed limit/No etry-Parking restrictions , always cary all necessary documents with me. And even after that cop asks me to stop , I stop. And as a GOOD citizen always pay the fine and ask for a official receipt.

AND CERTAINLY DONT FALSH A RS 50/100 bill and laugh at a cop ,

something similar happened to me a month ago.Had my cellphone on the seat next to me in my mums 800.I had just left my house and was on my way to work when this cop on a bike pulls up next to me right outside my lane(I hadnt even been in the car for 3 minutes at that point) he taps my window and asks for my licence when I asked him what I had done he said I was talking on my fone.
I pulled over and there was another cop standing with him I asked the cop again what my mistake was and he said that he had seen me talking on the phone.I promptly showed him my call register and the last calls were from the previous night.I openly told him that he was a crook at which point he started getting very rude and told me that I should mind my tongue before I was thrown in jail and beaten like a dog.
At that point I had had enough of his nonsense and promptly told him to check my windshield as I had a protocol on the car and that he couldnt stop me even in I was on the phone.His tone changed as soon as he saw the sticker and told me to go .By that time I was late and pissed off at him so I told him that his nonsense would not work anymore and also that one day the very public whom he is supposed to serve will catch him and hammer him like a stray dog.He didnt have anything to say he just gave me a dirty look as I got into my car n drove off.

what's a protocol sticker? is it like some official govt of india sticker?

the other day, i had an emergency call on my mobile and i had to pick it up and i was driving in this small lane at about 15-20 kmph. and somehow, no clue why, there was a traffic cop plying on that road. he stopped me and i stopped, apologizing for my mistake and i was ready to pay the fine of 100 rupees. then he refused to give me the receipt. i told him that i wouldn't pay him until i get the receipt. so, he charged me 400 rupees (100 for talking on the mobile + 300 for dangerous driving). i mean, just because i wanted a receipt, i had to pay 300 rupees more. is there a definition of dangerous driving?
