As rightly pointed out,by Mr. Padmakumar, IG , it is an infringement of the common man's privacy rights .
Please do not choose a short cut by executing a barbarian methods in your enthisiasm to implement Supreme court Order.
2. Supreme Court order is to remove sun control films which block over 70% visibility . If the police do not have the required equipments can the police make there own law ?
Can somebody file a petition to stop such an action by the kerala Police ? We , the law abiding common man in Kerala must now move the court against atrocities of the police department and the Trasport department by misuing / mis interpretting a supreme court order to their convenience
3. Drunken driving is causing lots of road accidents and death in Kerala roads. If we didn't had a breath analiser , will the authorities decide to BAN all bars / liquor shops in Kerala . Thanks , we have an alchohol metre.
It is time for us to Act .
You are mostly wrong! Moreover please go through the entire order before sharing or spreading false information and trying to instigate contempt of court.
The whole judgement can be downloaded from the forum itself and the link to which is available here:http://www.theautomotiveindia.com/fo...tml#post158230
I'll try and explain what all you as well as the media got wrong, Think the Police and Motor Vehicle authorities are also misinformed. Wonder what makes it so hard for them to read an Order?
1. The Supreme Court Order has put a blanket ban on any material used upon the windows of a vehicle, Be it Sun Control films, Curtains, Sun-blinds, You name it, its banned.
The court has only allowed glasses that come tinted as in coloured at the time of manufacture and that is where the percentages of VLT applies, And its not applicable for the Sunfilms, not applicable for the Sunfilms, Be it one that allows 95% VLT even. Its mentioned in Paragraph_26 of the Order.
2. The Police by flagging down non complying vehicles and their stripping of Sun films wont amount to any atrocity or are the making their own law as they are directed to do so by the Supreme Court in its Order and can be seen in paragraph_25.
3.Regarding D.U.I-Driving under the influence(of Alcohol for instance). The breath analyzer is a mere tool to screen drunk and drive suspects before going to a hospital to get a blood test done(Its done as such, So the cops dont have to take each and every suspected drunk driver to the hospital for blood tests and largely inconvenience motorists as well as themselves.). Its the Blood test report which shows the alcohol levels of the suspect and that is what matters and nails the offender, not the Breath analyzer per se.
4.Regarding the Kerala High Court matter. The Court did not allow the petition then as it conflicts with Rule 100(2) of the CMVR. No Court can allow a petition that conflicts with any other law or statute.
The Order may not be fair, But till a stay, appeal or order on appeal comes Like it or not, Its the Law of the land
! comes But there is a catch here, The current Order of the Supreme Court is pretty much flawed and there is a fair chance for a change of matters on appeal. The use of Sun Films adhering to Rule 100(2) of the Central Motor Vehicle Act,1989 probably will be allowed on appeal. But like already said by Superbad, Sun Film manufacturers are keeping silent so they can go for the kill after everyone's removed their films and the appeal gets allowed. Its a dirty corporate conspiracy, But then again its always been that way.
P.S:The media is not something you can rely on for matters, They mostly consist of jacks of all masters of none these days. Seen lot of people suffer after quoting law that was misinterpreted by the media. They are jsu here to make a fast buck and they really dont care much about you or me for that matter.
