    Particularly the buses should be monitored. They are the highest traffic rules offenders. Most of them are arrogant and misbehave when questioned about the flouting of traffic regulations. Most of the drivers use mobile phones while driving caring a hoot for the passenger's objections.

    All these are agreed. But when the roads will be made scientific? No one is talking about it. There are no standards to construct roads/footpaths/pedestrian crossing, etc. No one knows what does the colored lines on road represent and how they should be respected. I feel they should focus on this also.

    This is purely money making business. If TP are serious of safe roads, then it should start of local city busses who ply within the city limits dangerously. No value for human life for bus operators. Secondly enough parking lots to be built within the city limits and not harass the owner of vehicle for illegal parking. Strict meter rule should be imposed on Auto driver's as well. Nanthoor junction which is labelled as death trap circle need to be manged technically based on it's seriousness. If we don't have solution, we can take expert's advice on how to manage the Nanthoor cross. Simply stopping two wheelers for helmet or other reason will not bring safe roads if all the above are cordoned off.
    Jai Hind.

    According to police violators are those who caught by police.

    1. Vehicles come from wrong side

    2. Vehicles comes from wrong side in circles and they will not be seen till they reach to touch vehicle coming from opposite side who are right in their path.
    Many vehicles will be parked on the cross road side and vehicles entering the main road will not see the vehicle coming on the road. Parked vehicle will be obstacle.

    3. Car drivers open door suddenly and I saw many accidents especially bike drivers.
    I too hit and wounded once when a car driver suddenly opened the door.

    4.Car drivers park the vehicle on the road and suddenly they come backward and hit the vehicle .

    5.Bus drivers will not care senior citizens while getting down from the bus. Many senior citizens wounded and died. Case will in the court. After death of senior citizens who will fight the case.

    Good move. Hope it is practically executed.
    Every developed country has this rule. Violations which are of safety concern to life of driver or pedestrians has to be treated only by cancellation of license for few months. There should not be any escape by bribing or by using "high level influence".
    In USA, Europe, Middle East etc., parking offenses are treated by fine. But safety violations are necessarily treated by suspension of license. Repeated violation is treated with permanent cancellation of license and the person cannot apply for new license for at least 3 years.
    There are two types of sign boards. Those with red colour border (speed limits, no parking, no U-turn, No Entry, no overtaking, etc. etc.) are mandatory. Those with blue border are advisory (for example, School zone, Sharp turn ahead, Height limit at bridge, gradient ahead, curved road, narrow culvert, crossing ahead, etc. etc.

    Public of Mangagala Ooru does not have any guts. The kali pili traffic policemen from north karnataka are speaking like tigers in this city. They do not have the guts to speak in this manner to people in places like Hassan, Tumkur, Mandya, Mysuru or even Bengaluru
    People of our city should unite, especially two wheeler riders. The police are taking two wheeler riders for a ride.
    They do not have the guts to tackle the menace of city bus lobby as they pay them hafta.
    But no use talking or even writing in this forum as the people of athi buddivanthara jilles are basically pukkalu.

    Atleast every week we have some new rules very nice to read only, because early morning in front of the police vans most of the 2 wheeler's are driven without wearing a helmet or else by young students who go for coaching classes and who do not have a driving licence. So the rules are applicable only after the office hours start.

    The announcement by the police is an EXCELLENT move.

    In my opinion, a country is civilised only when its people use public spaces in a courteous and civilised manner.

    Indians do not know yet how to use public spaces in a courteous and civilised manner.

    Sincere 'thank you' to police for teaching the public a few manners on the streets.

    Abdulla, India, one most important point you ignored, Teaffic police are to be trained properly. Or a new bunch of well trained traffic officers to be appointed.

    It's a joke! Can you stop private bus drivers hovering at high speed destined to kill innocent pedestrians or bike drivers?
    Can you stop people honking?
    SP or police officers if you can't stop these then what you are really want to do with this new law. Stop innocent bike drivers and harass them ?
    We public open challenge authorities to take strict action against private bus drivers who are killing machines on road. Please do this first and save life.
