Hi,

Today (12/2/3009), me and my friend were caught by a few traffic police men for a signal violation and not wearing the helmet. The Sub-Inspector in charge Mr.Chelladurai quoted a number of sections and said that the overall fine was Rs.1, 500/-. When we refused to pay he lowered the fine to Rs200/- and asked us to pay it. When we asked him a receipt for it he refused to give us a receipt for the same.

The traffic constables accompanying him also treated us with total dis-respect. It is a pity thatthje general public is at the mercy of such merciless government officials. Please let me know where to log in my complaint.

Yours Sincerely,

Srinath

Yes. This happened to me too at the Tidel Park signal. The SI also said that instead of having receipt I can mention to all the traffic policemen who stop me on way that Chelladurai is my friend for the day. Poor me.. If only it had been a woman police. I wud have had a valentine for the 2009.
ya, me too had same situation just now before in teynampet signal... they snatched 300 from me..
reckless police...
Me to charged me at night 9:50PM for crossing the signal but I not crossed the signal. If anyone knows the process of lodging a complaint on me kindly mail me to systemadmin.[protected]@gmail.com
Its really a racking situation and its high time for us to take care of these .I own a kerala registered car and spend minimum Rs 200 a week for feeding these stupids just because of KL registration.Once they come to know that I am not from chennai, they find fake reasons for getting bribe.It is painful, not because of the amount but becaues of getting cheated.Since there is no one to help us to put an end to this situation, Let us pray to god that for whomever these spend our hard earned money, be destroyed and that Let that traffic police men suffer rest of his life.
All the posts are fine...but the last post is unacceptble...to ms.mythili nair...i[censored] drive in chennai then u have to register noc certificate and get it done...so tht u dont need to spend money to these ppl...

but on the other side i accept these traffic police are really bad...as they cheated me a lot of times...
Guys,

same story with me...A traffic inspector in Bescent nagar beach...asked us to pay...2000 RS for NOC and expired Insurance.( My friends bike is from AP.He has already NOC..but not received..he had the NOC bill.)

He treated us to the worse and acted like a Hitler. He finally said...unless we bribe him 300 RS, he will never let us go. I dont want to bow and pay that bribe cockroach. I paid a 1000 Rs with bill challan.

I am seeing a way to verifiy if this challan if it is original!!

But do anyone have any idea...how 2 reduce this nusence, can we contribute by making few traffic police caught to the anti corruption dept?

Hi all,

My name is vijayakumar. This incident took place near saidapet signal chennai at 8.40 P.M 16/12/2009. While i was crossing the signal a group of police caught me and verified my licence and insurance. Everything was perfect with me. Then he asked 500 rs. I asked why sir everything is perfect with me. Then he said "if you are not going to give money i will book you under not obeying signal, i know whome to get money. I had only 100 rs in my purse. I showed my purse to him. He took that money and gave my bike key.
Please someone stop these kind of illeagel activities by chennai police.
hai

i faced the same problem. on 17/01/2010 evening i took my car and travelled from saint thomas mount towards beach. I WAS STOPPED BY A TRAFFIC POLICE AT THENAMPET AND VERIFIED MY LICENCE AND TOLD THAT I CROSSED SIGNAL WHEN AMBER LIGHT WAS GLOWING. I HOLD LEARNERS LICENCE. HE TOLD ME THAT HE WILL BOOK CASE AND I HAD TO COME TO COART TOPAY PENALTY. HE COLLECTED RS.100/= AND LET ME GO. THEN FROM THENAMPET SIGNAL I TOOK RIGHT TURN TOWARDS MYLAPORE AND THERE I WAS STOPPED BY THREE TRAFFIC POLICE.. THEY THREATENED THAT THOUGH I WAS HOLDING L=LICENCE, IN FRONT SIDE L- BOARD WAS NOT DISPLAYED AND I DID NOT NOTICE THE RED SIGNAL. IF CASE BOOKED, RS.1500/[ WOULD BE PENALTY. THEY COLLECTED RS.200/= AND LET ME GO.
MY QUESTION IS WHY THEY NOT STAND NEAR TO SIGNAL AND CONTROL THE TRAFFIC WHEN PUBLIC OVER LOOK . IT IS QUITE OBVIOUS TRAFFIC POLICE LET THE PUBLIC TO COMMIT MISTAKE EITHER TO COLLECT PENALTY OR TO FILL THE POCKET. SHAME !!!
I underwent the same harassment yesterday(23.1.10). At Nandanam signal at 9.15 am as i was turning towards the right towards SIET college the traffic signal suddenly stopped showing green right turn when i was midway turning towards right and there was this SI who stopped me. He started writing the challan when i got out of my car and i pleaded with him for consideration since it was not my fault because the green light stopped when i was midway. He did not listen. I am a Central Govt Gazetted Officer and i showed him my identity card also. He said that i have to pay 1200 Rs. I said i didnt have the money. Then he lowered the amount asking me to pay Rs.300. I paid and thought that he would give me the challan but instead he asked me to just go.When i mentioned about the money he said that in that case i will have to pay Rs.1200. I did not have the time to argue as i was in a hurry and so i left.I THINK THIS IS A PLOY ADOPTED BY THESE CORRUPT OFFICERS TO CHANGE THE SIGNAL WHEN THEY SEE VEHICLES IN THE MIDST OF CROSSING AND THEN STOPPING THEM BY STANDING A LITTLE AWAY AND THEN COLLECTING BRIBE. THEY DONT SPARE EVEN FELLOW GOVT OFFICERS. THIS PARTICULAR SI CAN BE SEEN STANDING AT THE CORNER OF NANDANAM SIGNAL (SIET SIDE) AND COLLECTING MONEY IN FULL PUBLIC VIEW.This SI has covered his name plate cleverly with envelopes in his pocket to safeguard himself.I request the authorities concerned to take strong action against this SI who was on duty yesterday at Nandanam signal at 9.15 am.
Chennai Traffic Police are the most corrupt in the entire world. They are blood-suckers and it is high time that the people of Chennai stood against them. The officials should look into this corruption and make sure that no spot-fine can be made. Since the government does not earn 1 rupee from it. Everything goes into their corrupt pockets. I hope they rot in hell.
The spasm taken by Chennai traffic police to invent new scientific thesis are really commendable.When the average speed of my bike is around 50 even i raise my accelarotor to the fullest, even then the Traffic police in OMR Road have proved that the tachometer shows my bike speed at 70kms.surely they will be a part of all new initiatives taken by ISRO with their gadets and HIFI Technology. The language they speak to people whether educated or uneducated and the way they treat is the only reason why our mother tongue tamil has been conferred with Chemmozhi status.Also, all their hard earned money are going directly to the prime ministers relief fund.Hence forth all the IT Employees and other fellow citizens of my country are requested not to negotiate with these white dressed and white hearted Traffic men and allow them to do their jobs for serving the great motherland with their clean and transparent mindset and by god's grace they all give their hand to developed INDIA 2020 where the Traffic police department assets will be on par with that of the swiss bank assets(which would be iota in comparison).Jai Hind!

Traffic Police — Traffic Police not keeping receipt books

Hello,

The traffic police do not keep the original receipt books with them. If they catch you for signal breaking etc they give a temporary receipt and make you go to the main office to pay the fine.

Certainly they are doing this to get bribe because generally people can afford to pay Rs 100 for breaking the signal but if they need to go all the way to main office to pay the fine they will opt. for setting the matter by bribing.

If the traffic police can carry the temporary receipt then why can’t they carry original receipts itself. This will reduce the corruption to some extent atleast.
My name is Selvan. This incident took place near Ashok Pillar signal chennai at 4.20 P.M 17/07/2011. While i was crossing the signal a group of police caught me and verified my licence and insurance. Everything was perfect with me. Then he asked 1500 rs. I asked why sir everything is perfect with me. Then he said "if you are not going to give money i will book you under not obeying signal, i know whome to get money. I had only 500 rs in my purse. I showed my purse to him. He took that money and gave my bike key.
Please someone stop these kind of illeagel activities by chennai police.
I had a similar experience today. Was stopped by one pot bellied inspector Muthuveerapan.V. It was morning 5 and my offence was signal violation. Infact, i had stopped at all the signals and my bad i missed this one signal, and the road was like a free state highway with no vehicles on the road. What ever may be, i agree, i had commit-ed an offence of signal violation. But my point is that this person took 350 Rs from me as fine. Later i came to know that the fine is only 50 Rs. He asked for a bribe of Rs 100, since i refused to pay a bribe, he made me pay 350. My only intention of this post to let everyone know that fine amount for signal violation (Section 119 U/s 177) is only Rs 50 (as per the receipt) and DO NOT PAY A PENNY MORE TO THESE POT BELLIED .
