[Resolved]  Mumbai Traffic Police — Faulty signal light

I was at the Ruia signal awaiting the signal to turn green for a left turn on the the EEH. The straight ahaed signal turned green but the left signal was blank and the red light was not on. I took the left as it was not dangerous driving. I was stopped by the cop on th left and asked to pay a fine for jumping a signal.

The signal was not red, the straight ahead signal was green, but the left signal was blank, in this situation I took a left. Is this an offence as made out by the cops. I argued with them but they insisted I deposit my driving license with them.

I went the same evening to pay the fine of rs. 100 and collect my license but was told thatI have cone too early to pay the fine. the license will only e deposited the next day and I should come again to pay the fine and collect my driving license.

This is gross injustice as the signal timing is faulty and the system of paying fine so inappropriate.

Can this be rectified or at least some decent uniform signal systems be installed?

I completely agree to such situation. I don't break rules while driving drive very decently. But the vakola signal is very wrongly placed. There was a Auto in from of me which completely shadowed the signal. Autos have the habbit to cruise on amber. sometimes even when its just red.The cop caught me and i told him the reason, and i am sure he knows it happens. but i had to leave my liscence and collect it from vakola station. it hurts when it happens with person who does not break rules.

Sir, From Chembur Naka to cross Chagan mitha petrol pump signal takes 10 minutes which is hardly 500 metre distance because of timing of signal is very short, hardly 10 vehicle can cross in one occasion.
You are requested to address the issue.
