Red Beacons *Banned* On V.I.P Cars
1 Attachment(s)


Government bans the use of red beacons by VIPs, order to come into effect on May 1

Red beacons will be allowed only for emergency vehicles and enforcement agencies

Terming the decision historic, road transport minister Nitin Gadkari said, "People used to feel bad about people in power and others using red beacons on their vehicle. It's a huge democratic decision."

And who will implement this law[lol]

"VIP"s are already ahead of the curve. They already use blue light instead of red. Ban blue , and they will use orange. All these wont work unless the mindset (VIP culture) changes. I recently read somewhere that India has a whopping number of 5,79,092 officially designated "VIP"s . Add the "self designated VIP"s to the list and we have the population of a middle sized European country.
Where as other countries like UK have 84 VIPs , France -109 , US - 252 , and even China - 435 and so on.

Therefore more drastic changes are required rather than enacting a few laws which no police can even implement.
