Default Traffic Police Websites- How Interactive And Effective They Are?

Was hearing about the Delhi Police website's open forum for the public to lodge complaints against erring traffic users. In fact one can even upload images (they were talking of a facebook link up or something of that sort) of violation of traffic laws by the wrong doers for police action.
They say the fast approaching Commonwealth Games have prompted them to gear up the traffic and inculcate discipline.Lets see how much used and misused the complaint box will be.The link here:
Complaint Card-Delhi Traffic Police

Believe that the fines are too little to prove as real deterrents for wrongdoers. Most of the Rs 100-200 fines are pittances and are based on the MV Act of 1988. Upward revisions are necessary.

When travelling on highways, is the police authorized to issue a chalan and collect the fine on the spot or do they just issue the chalan and collect the car RC and driver licence and then ask the person to visit the court to submit the fine and then collect the documents?
I ask this because when driving from Chandigarh to Noida, I was stopped near Dera Bassi and the Traffic Constable asked me to submit the documents and pay the fine in the court rather than collecting the fine on the spot.

Must be "person".Nearest to the word "parson" is the pop group's name Alan Parson's Project.
Like in a govt office a jeep's tyres had worn out. The officer in charge dictated to his steno "It is very difficult to ply the jeep through the roads and new tyres need to be purchased."
The steno typed ""It is very difficult to fly the jeep through the city roads and new tyres need to be purchased."

Wikipedia describes parson as a pastor/father/priest. Does it mean that you are not supposed to a carry God's spokesperson in a good car. I guess Thane traffice police must have come across a lot of "Bad" priest which has made them levy a fine on them.
