The towing kings of Vadodara traffic police are always geared up to take away your vehicles, without checking, whether it violates the law or not. The towing scenes are commonly seen at the Sayajigunj, Racecourse, Raopura, Waghodia road, Alkapuri and all the other areas. These committed towing personnel are so sharp that without seeing the parking boards, they just lift the vehicle and mount it on the towing van. And dare you argue, the dabang cops will start teaching you the rules and regulations.
The towing vans generally work on the main roads in all major cities of India, but Vadodara is the only city, where these vans enter the corners and lanes, and start their job diligently. It is a fact that traffic police role is to control and maintain the traffic of the city. But the way they target a vehicle , it seems that they are more concerned about the target of the fine achieved.
Recently the Vadodara traffic has launched the CCTVs to catch the crooks violating the traffic norms. The Barodian found a camera towards the Inorbit mall and they were surprised to see that the auto wala , who pick up and drop about 05 to 06 passengers , somehow never come in camera, while a two wheeler guy, is punished for not wearing helmet. And that’s not all , he or she has to go to a bank to pay the challan, and approach the traffic police officials with the vehicle, where they will check the license, PUC , RC book and Insurance. After this cumbersome process the owner is freed technically.
As a law abiding citizen, it is our duty to observe the traffic rules, and if we violate we should be punished. But is everyone including the traffic cops observe the traffic rules? Let the conscious of cops answer the question. There are so many auto rickshaw , which are known as shuttle , take more than the required passengers , but they are never fined, may be there are some special bylaws for these auto rickshaw drivers.
