Impact: Police Commissioner Acts Against Vehicles with Loud Horns


Impact: Police Commissioner Acts Against Vehicles with Loud Horns

Brijesh Garodi
Daijiworld Media Network - Mangalore

Mangalore, Jul 3: Two days after Daijiworld carried a special report on the menace caused by vehicles blaring horns on city roads, especially by buses using pressure horns, city police commissioner Seemanth Kumar Singh directed the RTO to take stringent action against violators.

Seemanth Kumar, who read the report on Daijiworld and sensed the outrage among readers, acted immediately, and said that he has instructed the regional transport officer (RTO) to keep track of the issue and take necessary steps.

As per the order, RTO officers on Tuesday July 3 stopped vehicles, especially city buses, and warned the drivers of strict action if they do not remove pressure horns immediately.

On Sunday July 1, Daijiworld published a report on the adverse effects of indiscriminate and loud honking, especially by commercial vehicles which use pressure horns. Under the Motor Vehicles Act, improper use of horns, using shrill and pressure horns and honking in silence zones are punishables offences.

On Tuesday, the RTO along with other staff intercepted city buses near Bhagingi Samaj, Morgan's Gate and other areas. Cases were also registered against buses that have a high intensity horns fitted in them.

Speaking to Daijiworld, Seemanth Kumar Singh said that despite warning commercial vehicles several times and removing and seizing the pressure horns, they are fitted back and used over and over again. Terming it 'cheap' on the part of the vehicle owners, he said that if it continues, the licence of the erring driver would be cancelled.

"We will keep a record of all the erring vehicles and their drivers. If the drivers violate the rule, we will seize their licence, and if the same vehicle driven by a new driver is caught using such horns, we will cancel the permit," he said.

    Loud horns are a big menace in Bangalore City as well.

    All the tankers, trucks seem to have it. No action taken by Traffic police to stop them.

    Urgent action to ban all loud horns is required.

    Ya the horns are deafening. They are blown even when there is red signal.

    The Police also care for the passengers by controlling the whistling especially in the city buses. Why should the conductors go on whistling. Many passangers' ears get irritated and face the prospect of ear-pain in the long run. And also a lot of noise pollution.

    Can Mr. Seemanth Kumar Singh, Comm. of Police or the RTO enlighten us ?

    Presently I am on leave.
    While driving around in Mangalore city, I have noticed that the city buses following you will keep on sounding blaring air horns. Even though there is a traffic jam ahead, and I am powerless to give way to the bus behind me, he will keep honking loudly.
    Probably he expects me to extend my car propellers and take off like a helicopter to make way for his bus!.
    Nowadays, even Auto drivers also have installed loud electrical horns.
    These drivers honk horns when: they want to overtake, are in a happy or foul mood, he is passing a group of pretty young girls,he is bored, he had a fight with his wife when he left for his job
    ,recently he quit alcohol, his last girlfriend who refused to marry him committed suicide with her husband,his arch enemy is diagnosed with AIDS,A huge red ant has bitten his back side etc.etc.The above is an exhaustive list. He has 100 reasons to blow horn indiscriminately - anytime and anywhere.

    I am the witness,
    Yesterday 6.30 PM I was travelling to M'lore airport by a taxi.
    While aproaching the Highway from Kadri-Park my Taxi driver was waiting to enter Highway since there was a speed trafic on highway.
    Behind us one City bus came and it was not allowing us to give way and wait only forcing us to go to highway by honking heavyly (even though way was not clear).
    These bus drivers are not trained rules of road,lane changing,give way from right in India (give way from left in GCC and USA)vice versa.

    DAIJI KINDLY START A CAMPAIGN FOR KSRTC GOVT BUSES ON OUR MANGALORE ROADS SINCE KSRTC EMPLOY ONLY EDUCATED DRIVERS AND WE WILL BE MORE SAFER ON MANGALORE ROADS.

    ALL READERS WILL SUPPORT YOU.
    KEEP GOING DAIJI!

    ALL THE BEST.

    Pity the police Department...First it was the Helmet when hole departmnets was behind those who break the rules. Next came the "Interceptor" which been used for few months but now been rusted and bieng idle. Next came the "Alpometer" which helped in fining a lot drunkers beyond limits. But now that too is rarely used now a days and not in news. Next in he news was the tinted windows where inspectors were seen ripping off the films for free.. The new arrival at the departments is the "Blackberry" for Online fines and records of traffic crimes. We'll wait and see how far this will work before the regular book with carbon will come out again....Poor Police...First of all the department is facing postings and these burdens are for free!!!!

    The authorities should send the police officers to other asian countries HongKong and Thailand where people do not use horns unless its a emergency.The police should stop all the nuisance at jyoti circle so that the students at the government pre university college Balmata can concentrate on the lectures.The Bus drivers are worst people who misuse the horns.The fines should be severe so that it can impliment it faster.I saw the fine was rupees one hundred for the films on the glass windows and then how it can be implimented.People will just pay hundred rupees and get away.

    Good move taken by our police commissioner but sir unfortunately most people travelling by city bus in m'lore are already deaf because of loud horns,loud mobile conversations and harsh music.Another point to be noted is that conductors are just throwing tickets in air,and asking people how much they paid etc.Most importantly the overloading of buses and speed and robbery inside buses is to be stopped at the earliest.

    Hats of Daijiworld for carrying the earlier report on which the action has been initiated. And Bravo, Mr. Seemanth Kumar Singh for implementing that which is safe and beneficial to the general public. It would also be made mandatory the public transport use only the hand pumped horns like that of old and still used by B.E.S.T buses in Mumbai. The manual exercise will tire the driver from honking too much and besides the noise levels of hand pumped horn is much lower.

    It is also to be advised all buses to install switches and a small bell or light requesting a stop to alight/board either by conductor passenger themselves. The shrieking sount of mouth whistles are often sound louder than 60db which is above the accepted level of sound. Whistles also to be banned and be used only by policemen/security guards.

    I agree with the very important point made by Fr.Walter Mendonsa SVD.It is too irritating to travel in Buses as the conductors keep blowing the whistle just to create an impression to the public that the bus is leaving but in fact is still stationary soliciting passengers by continuously blowing whistle. Will the authorities stop the blatant use of whistles in buses. They can introduce the bell system as used in BEST buses in Mumbai. Further all forms of music and video played in buses also should be stopped. These disturb the peace of many a travellers. The drivers have scant respect to the peoples peaceful living and they ply on city roads honking as though the whole road belongs to them. Pleas put an end to this menace. I hope the RTO will act in this regard and continue the good work they have started.

    bus/lorry drivers have all the patience to not horn when theres a block on the road or on the bridge. they can wait for few mins to few hours without honking.when it comes to driving in any other circumstances they make the most use of the horns. same kind of patience if used will make driving in the city very disciplined and organised.

    Congratulations to Mr S Kumar & the RTO for initiating something that was long long overdue. But to make it mor effective, I wonder why "warnings" were being issued why not FINES as laid down by the MVA as having the horns is illegal.
    Now that tinted glasses are being tackled, the air horn menace is being tackled, what about the conductors whistle (why not a bell in the vehicle for conductor/ driver communication)being stopped, what about the fancy number plates which again is illegal as per the MVA.
    Mr Commissioner, Kankanady Junction leading from /to Pumpwell is one of the worst places of noise pollution please tackle this spot, Sir urgently.

There are several sick people, there are several elderly people,MAY BE THERE ARE SOME BED RIDDEN, there are some who wants to relax from their work & responsibilities...! i always admire & honestly happy with DAIJIWORLD for their foccussed projects. Few weeks back one final year student died at mulki by bike accident from bijai stany`s son & died. how beautifully daijiworld has completed the project by their dedication, hard work,sincierity & by good will & whatever way they could do it they did.

    Horn menace has to end. Its really irritating to hear the loud horns when driving in two wheelers. secondly buses should be forced to just pick up passengers from bus stop and move the bus immediately without halting anywhere for a long time. Jyothi bus stand is an ample proof of this. buses just come and halt there making a nuisance for other vehicles forcing them to nonstop blow their horns. BTW goodwork by Daijiworld.

Besides this shrill horn problem, we also have couple of more traffic problems such as too much whistle blowing by conductors, rash driving by city buses, stopping in the middle of the road, not giving enough time for the passenger to get-in and get-down from the buses, using full (dipper) lights even when there is vehicle in the opposite direction. I hope whatever initiative has taken by Mr. Police commissioner will continue for ever in Mangalore city and hope Mangalore city will set an example for other cities to follow. Jai Hind!

    Congrats Mr. Mr Seemanth Kumar. Seems someone has to bring it to the attention and the action will be taken as the department has lot of Law and Order work. We need to take this matter further in the same interest the department took in removing the shade films of the vehicles... Keep the good work... We are with you...Let us show the violators that the rules are not buried.

    It is true the horns used by Private buses is really a nuisance. Even Cars and rickshaws are anything less. When I walk I really feel the pain in my ear drums when these buses blow the horns for no reasons. If we shout at them they will do it more. That is why I started to use earphones to listen to FM and get away from this nuisance. Action taken though late but it is said "Better late than Never". Another nuisance that the city is facing is spitting. Heavy fines of minimum Rs. 500 every time for Horning, spitting and urinating in public property could reduce this menace. Everybody wants to keep his house clean but when it comes others private or public property they care too hoots. Time we act immediately to prevent such nuisance.

    We appreciate RTO’s effort to implement the “Road Rage Rule for Commercial Vehicles” but is there anyone who can impose hefty fine on RTO for non-repair or non-maintenance of roads?
