      Do you know that there is fine for attaching car audio/tape recorder in our car and Its Rs 1000/-

      The news paper clip I am attaching above is from todays Malayala Manorama newspaper Kochi edition. MVD is planning to ban Audio systems. Televisions and Air horns from cars. MVD site says it is applicable to stage carriers, but news paper says it is applicable to passenger cars also.

      Better late than never. Most of the accidents and 90% of people killed in our roads are due to motorists playing music in their cars and pedestrians straining their neck into the roads to hear which track they are playing so that they can avoid paying royalty to the singers. Its same as free music download. Next things which are causing the rest of pedestrian deaths and will be banned are as follows :

      ABS and Airbags - This must be removed in the near future, MVD will start clamping on cars with these facilities, drivers are driving their car in high speeds due to safety factor resulting in bikers and pedestrians getting killed.

      GPS - Before this gadget came in, drivers used to stop and ask for directions resulting in low speeds, now a days people knows their paths in advance and they drive in higher speeds.

      Airconditioning - Drivers doze off due to the cold climate inside which results in reduced concentration.

      Sunglasses - MVD officials and Police cannot see the drivers eyes, they might be sleeping while driving.

      THERE ARE ONLY 1% DEATHS REPORTED DUE TO POT HOLED FILLED ROADS
      Skoda Octavia 1.8 TSI AT 2017
      Honda Brio Vx AT 2013
      Volkswagen Jetta 2011 Code6 DSG/TCU tuned

      I had some respect for the Traffic Police Commissioner, Mr.Rishiraj Singh. But with this **** and bull story of Music players causing accidents, I have lost faith in him.

      Sidekick: The commissioner might've banged his head somewhere inside his car while travelling in Kochi, and lost his sanity

      silversteed : the news article also mentions only stage carriers - including LCVs and HCVs. IIRC there was a court ruling too in this

      Women and girls in the front seat cause accidents . The Govt should ban females from traveling in the front seats .

      Alright, what I posted above was by taking a quick look at the news item. The MVD rules say that using an audio visual radio or tape recorder type system in stage carriage affects and violate road safety and control of noise, which can be fined Rs.1000 under section 190(2) of rule SR289.

      Stage Carriage implies buses. So, this rule is not applicable to cars.

      However, the news item says it affects vehicles that come fitted with music systems from the manufacturer - I am yet to see a bus or truck that has an OEM music system, so we are made to believe that cars and other UVs will also come under the scanner, according to the report. I take this with a pinch of salt

      Banning A/C, sun glasses, pedestrians getting killed when sticking out their neck? Is this news for real or some sort of failed humour?
