When law enforcers breaks it

Cases of taking bribes by traffic police are increasing in Panvel and New Panvel, where public are victimized with constant checking.

Representational pic Population of Panvel and remaining parts has grown tremendously, due to its potential to become a better future city. It has witnessed heavy investments and simultaneously increased public in the area. It has started offering better infrastructure, due to increase in number of vehicles and public transport. In order to manage this traffic and increasing number of vehicles, traffic police of Panvel has increased its presence throughout the city. But residents are now complaining the bad behavior of traffic police.

With increased number of vehicles, need to control drivers who violates laws have become important. Traffic police is strictly checking such problems in the highways and even in common roads. Usage of helmets has got increased due to strict checking of traffic police in the area. But many times residents are cheated by policemen who want to fill the pocket, instead of applying traffic rules.

Representational pic100 RS fine are commonly took from people traveling without helmets. The same is fined for illegal parking with extra for towing vehicles. Often policemen in charge gave an option for offenders if they want receipt or not. If we ask for receipt, we have to pay as per the rules. But if we don’t want receipt, fine will be less without further problems. Drivers often choose the second option, as it will cost less.

The same idea is applied in other punishable acts. When people are caught without license or proper vehicle papers, it has become easy to get away by satisfying the policemen. Many residents are raising voice against the behavior of traffic police, when they are obliged to control traffic and its problems.

Prakash Koshy, a resident of Panvel, said “Traffic police is making nuisance for our lives, as they started haunting our journey. Strict checking for traffic rules is important, but people are suffering due to irresponsible and selfish traffic police.”

Raju Amos, a resident of Panvel, said “Policemen are visible in every street of Panvel; they are waiting like daylight bandits. If caught by a traffic policeman in Panvel, no way but to lose at least 300 RS, as they will definitely find some faults in our papers.”

Mohan Patil, traffic Police inspector of Panvel, said “such activities are not reported in any of our limits. But if such charges are we will take sufficient actions.”
