Well, I do not support soft corners for willful offenders. Infact soft corner is the root cause for law not being taken seriously. Offenders often consider soft corner as their birth right and perform illegal activities such as using mobile while driving.

You say point system should be applied and stern action to be taken only if the number of accumulated points exceeds certain threshold. Good as it sounds, but sadly point system cannot be applied for accident victims like say x no of points for being hit for the first time, then another x points for second hit and so on and finally death or permanent disablement only if certain points are accumulated. Is it so? Death or permanent disablement can happen on the very first instance itself. Hence law offenders are to be mended on the very first instance itself.

Every motorist is required to be aware of the Traffic rules (as they are required to undergo and pass examinations on the same) and has taken an oath to abide by them (read the license application carefully). Based on this application only the applicant qualifies to have a license. Any attempt made to violate these laws / rules is not only a breach of trust but also can have serious repercussions including fatal injuries to other innocent road users.

I profoundly applause any step taken by the Government for strict implementation of law (including traffic rules) and making life safer to the law abiding citizen. Kudos to Bangalore Police for this step in the right direction.
