    Not surprising at all. Traffic police is only busy collecting fines from hapless two and for wheelers. Someone overloaded three wheelers, rashly driven tractors with no number plates or even basic reflectors, overloaded overspending sand laden truckers all miraculously escape their attention. Traffic police had become revenue generation service for the government, no longer their primary duty is traffic control which is limited during VIP movements or accident prevention.
