Mangaluru, Jan 23: In a bizarre case reported from Mudipu on the outskirts of the city, the traffic police have issued a fine of Rs 9000 over a period of one month for the same vehicle.

The said two wheeler was parked in front of a medical shop in Ganesh Complex. What's more astonishing is that the two wheeler and the medical shop are owned by the same person. Meanwhile, the accused owner Srimati alleges that the Naguri traffic police have been harassing her with a law that is "not practiced anywhere in the country."

Srimati was stopped by the traffic police the early last year and informed that there was a fine of Rs 5000 on her scooter. Srimati, who was unaware of any fine on her vehicle asked the traffic police the reason for the fine. The Naguri traffic police personnel explained that her scooter wass parked in a No Parking area. Srimati replied that she had not received any notice. Then she started receiving two notices of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 fine per month. So far she has received 16 notices.

Srimati has kept all the 16 notices for display in front of her medical shop for the public to view.

    1.According to Municipal bylaws it is mandatory for every building owner to have adequate parking space for vehicles of ownner and guests, the dimensions according to building area are also mentioned, the rules are retrospective.2.Parking between road path and compound wall is considered as parking on footpath and is illegal.(a footpath need not always be paved).3.Parking on road without obstructing other vehicle movement is allowed, unless there is a no parking signboard. 4. Parking in front of gate, entry or exit is illegal.5. Better to go on a personal vehicle to a place where parking is available, otherwise take public transport like bus or auto.5. Monorail/Metro can solve most of the transport and parking problems. 6. Traffic police should educate public through media about parking rules.

    Fully agree with you Kujumaji.Corruption has to go on all fronts.Cops should compulsorily wear body cameras and there should be working CCTV cameras in all police stations( responsibility of the concerned inspector). Citizens should be also allowed to use their devices for video recordings with the government officials anywhere ( no andar ki baat, no bander ki baat). I am informed that a nodal agency will be soon setup in all states under the guidance of the Chief Justice of the respective High Court to monitor complaints against Police officials and IAS officers in a short time. Hope it is done quickly. Most of the services should be online, anonymous and without human interaction ( I have given suggestions and some of them are already implemented e.g in RTO and Indian Railways)

    I would like to know from the police and all the other authorities as to who owns the open space once the developers have given the setback in lieu of extra FSI for their buildings. All over town there are boards in front of these buildings that state "parking only for tenants/shop keepers/" on metal boards. And add to that the watchmen of the bldg/shop/etc come and deflate the tyres of those parking on the road, in front of these buildings. i had a bad experience in front of Bhima jewelers near SGS hospital and also near Bendore Well shops. Traffic Dept and MCC must clearly come out with the truth otherwise citizens are blackmailed/ troubled by watchmen/policemen.

    Parking places earmarked in the Original Building plan is then sold to Commercial establishments once NOC is recieved .. The repeated threats by the Authorities to demolish these shops etc is never done..for obvious reasons.. The places in front of hops n other Commercial establishments belong to the Public... The Municipal/Police Authorities should remove these Boards at once...

    Traffic dept is only sending notices to accumulate money but for how long?????….Is thier any sensible end to it???…..A proper traffic dept should send first notice with fine then a second notice with additional fine and with a warning that the vehicle will be confiscated if not removed and fines not paid. But the situation here is ridiculous and irresponsible by the police. This is extortion by traffic dept.

    This is infact one of the biggest problem in India. We have all laws which are applied only on hapless common person.. where as Netas indeed live a like kings...democracy is just for name sake here.. dare these officials issue fine to any neta of any party? They cant because they arevalso victims of excessive power which netas have... thats why many ordinary law abiding citizens once they go to liberal democratic places where common man has more security and system which is helpful would not want to come back to India..
