Of late we do not find Home Guards at junctions but can see the Traffic Police instead. These cops will be either sitting beneath the traffic umbrellas or on their bikes, where there are no traffic umbrellas. Most of the time they are busy talking on their mobile phones.
There are plenty of traffic rules violations happening right under their nose and these offenders are not at all bothered or scared about the presence of Traffic Police. I presume that these cops are under the impression that they need not initiate any action against traffic rules violations when they are alone. They prefer to turn a blind eye against the violations. Traffic Police are only interested in pouncing on the violators discreetly at some street corners or at junctions.
We, the public upload the pictures of traffic violations in “Public Eye” of the Mysuru City Police and these Traffic cops who stand a better chance than the public to capture traffic rules violations in their mobiles are not at all bothered.
If every single Traffic cop starts capturing the traffic rules violations photos and uploading to “Public Eye” of the City Police, I am sure that the violations will come down drastically. Violators will definitely think twice before they violate rules where Traffic cops are posted.
I request the higher authorities to instruct the Traffic cops to capture the photos of traffic rules violations and upload the same in the “Public Eye”.
