On the 20th of December, at about 3pm, we were travelling in a hired cab, and the car (an Innova, belonging to M/s. Chandru Travels) was stopped near the Ranga Shankara/Innisfree House School area by the traffic police.
They asked to see the driver’s documents, and the driver (Mr Prabhakar) had everything in order.
Mr Prabhakaran was dressed in a white shirt and trousers, presenting a neat appearance.
The police then wrote out a challan for his "not being in complete uniform" as the driver of a hired cab, and fined him Rs. 100.
Can someone tell me the logic of such a rule, and the reason to apply it…apart from fulfilling some quota of fines for that day? Several vehicles were stopped at the time.
Yes, he was given a proper receipt for the fine…but I still think that such a rule is nothing but harassment.
