Role reversal: Cops lathi charge people who asked them for their vehicle documents in Bhubaneswar

 

The amended Motor Vehicle Act, which came into effect across the country from September 1, has received a mixed response with many saying the hefty fines would prevent traffic offences while others questioning the increased amounts. In Bhubaneswar, however, tables turned completely when a group of people decided to ask traffic cops for documents of their vehicles.

The incident took place near Rajmahal Square where a group of locals reportedly flagged a police vehicle and made it stop. When they asked cops inside the vehicle to furnish their documents and those of the official vehicle, they were lathi-charged.

Many people across the country have said that while the hefty fines may deter people from committing traffic offences, it could also lead to a possible increase in corruption with traffic officials possibly accepting bribes of a lesser amount than the fine itself. It has also been wondered if cops, officials and VIPs would be fined if they are found guilty of violating traffic rules.
