Sorry for the Big OT
Sidd7hartha Da, It is not obvious that once you drive in that road and get case from police. No...you may never.
This is a heavily congested expressway most of the time - if you drive regularly in that route you see plenty of heavy truck parked either side of the flank with carrying construction material....those are originated from Durgapur - Asansol /Bihar/UP & even Rajasthan and destined for the Rajarhat New Town construction site.
So what they are doing there.. They are secretly unloading a certain amount of load and sell it local thugs with pre arranged contruct - And HERE WELCOME TO FUTURE OF WEST Bengal - SYNDICATE RAJ - And this is a Huge organize line of operation & that involve money.
After that those truck headed towards designated DHARMA KATA s (Truck weight stations) situated @ Jashore Road and certified the weight and everything is fine.
So Once there is Honey (Money) it attracts bees/ants and all kind of insects. Hence those traffic cops/green police are there to collect there share - after all they also family men.
During this routine some times normal public got middle of it, as Traffic Police have a quota to fill it. (Earlier it was 20-25 case per day, now it increase to 60-65 case per day for WB Police)
Now about KTP (Kolkata Trafic Police) - This is a new game.
No matter if you Ride / Drive (2 Wheeler / 4 Wheeler) if you fail to stop behind the white line or miss a signal or stop to attend a phone call (for 2 Wheeler) road side if Sargent there - they will book you a case.
Earlier it was 119 or 122 MV Act which got provision for spot fine, but now they start booking everyone under 184 Act - Driving Dangerously - No provision for spot fine and the only way to settle this (deposit the fees) at Court & this is a very time consuming process for Normal Public.
So be careful.
