Bangalore Traffic Police / Harrassed by Traffice Police
I am writting this out of utter frustration and mental harrassment. I was driving through Hebbal ring road towards KR Puram and suddenly traffic police showed hand so I stopped. And Poilce asked for my driving license and asked me to come out of my car. It was Maruti Alto. Then suddenly asked me to pay Rs.300. Then I asked why. Police said it is for over speeding. I said I was driving at 60KM/Hour. Then he the limit is 50Km/hour. I said I don't know about that. He said pay the amount otherwise I will be asking for Rs.700. Then I checked it was written on the board throughout ring road it is 60KM/hour for four wheelers and 50km/hour for two wheelers. I don't know the local language because of that only he did that way. He was telling me everything in kannad language only. And many vehicles are not stopping even.
I am really frustrated and harrased by them. It is out of any reason they charged me and they were not even in a mood to explain me.
I never expected that it may happen in bangalore also. I feel cheated. It has happened at 1:07PM on 11-11-2009.
I am requesting to Karnataka govt to please look into this matter and ensure it should not happen with normal people. Otherwise it will be real difficult for non local people to stay here.
I am really frustrated. I am not able to concentrate on anything for this matter.
This is really pathetic to get treated this way in Bangalore.
I am expecting a quick reply for this . My mail id : [protected]@lycos.com
will be waiting for a response from Karnataka Govt on this.
