Yesterday a very interesting thing happened. While driving on the road, before the never ending construction of Kadugodi railway overbridge, I was ushered by a group of traffic police standing on the roadside to stop. This was right infront of the Whitefield traffic police station.
A cop comes and tells me in Kannada that "Please get into the traffic police station and find out whethere you have any violations or not". Confused I protested saying I dont have any violations..The traffic police politely says "In case you have jumped a signal or any other violation it will be shown in the computer as we have just got online. You will get a no-violation slip if you dont have any".
So I take my documents and get into the police station. The cop punches my car regn. number into the some software running on the PC and says no violations are reported and hands me a tiny slip (a plain white sheet with a seal of the police station and someone's sign) and sends me on my way. Apparently from now on I believe I need to carry this tiny little slip as a proof that I dont have any violations on my car.
This looks a little unprofessional but the fact that atleast they are onto something gives me some hope.
