I am Deepak from Bangalore. I was fined at Cauvery Arts & Crafts Circle, MG Road on 26-009-2010 at 05:20:36PM for two offenses: 1) Jumping Traffic Signal 2) Lane Discipline.
To the best of my knowledge, I took right turn from Anil Kumble Circle side rode towards Brigade Road, when the signal was green. When I had crossed the signal more than half way, the traffic police man suddenly came and stopped me and fined for above two offenses. First he asked me for Rs. 200/- fine. I requested him saying that I had crossed the signal only when it was green, and might have turned red while I had just completed my turn. The reply was: " pay 300 Rs. now", and he was very arrogant. I want to know, if there is a rule by Bangalore traffic police that if you request a traffic police man, he will increase the fine by hundred rupees? The other offense framed was "Lane Discipline" .. I don't understand how these two can be clubbed together. If one jumps the traffic signal, ofcourse, he has to go to the lane he/she was supposed to. And lastly, I am 100% sure that I did not jumped the signal. If there is a closed circuit camera installed at that signal, you may please see the recording. I am ready to pay additional 1000 Rs. fine if I am found guilty. The CRR No. of fine is : A/8/1218/12333. My vehicle number is KA03-EY7404 (Blue-Black color Discovery 125 CC Bike). My DL number is 103614/2000. The traffic police man's bike number which I had noted is KA03-G-1040. Please take legitimate action.
