I was reading to “The Hindu” this morning, and saw this article. I have been in the same place trying to cross the road to reach central sub urban railways station. The cops have no control over the crowd. Yeah, I did see the subway, as Ms. Selvi stated it was in a pathetic shape.

My question is does chennai traffic police has to hear all this, just because they are doing good.

They are trying to save our lives.

This is what chennai peoples mentality. Even if some one is helping you, you start pointing fingers.

Well if Chennai traffic police had the rules in the first place, they need not have to hear the words, which people state.

I had stated once at chennai.metblogs too.

Just an Update: I took the other subway which is messier and with lot of hawkers. The one close to the park town station is cleaner safer and  hawkers  free.

Wondering when would Chennai traffic police would take the same step of encouraging people to use safe subway at saidapet bus terminus. Wish that could come true.

    Here boss read if I have to bear this from the very good police you are talking about….

    Read my recent story that happened on 12th December 2007.

    Its funny that the city police website does not have a option to make a complaint against any policemen. I am not sure if its left intentionally.

    I wanted to apply for a driving license and needed a letter of clearance from local police. The policeman who took all my documents had demanded Rs.200.

    I showed sign of not agreeing with him, then he asked me to buy him a packet of copier papers for the police station. To which I agreed, atleast will have a satisfaction of donating it to the police station.

    Now he has made me run up and down three times to the police station for the same.

    I wonder if there is any policemen left in the Chennai City police force, who does his job without taking any bribe.

    “Shame on you once again Chennai City Police.”

    Last I went to beach with my friend in Bike. While returning I pass through the signal which free left but traffic police who standing near the signal stopped my bike and asked me to pay fine for it. But he left other vehicles who passed through free left. He told that is not free left and he started to use very bad words. I really feel bad about those traffic police. They really behave very badly. I dont know how to complaint on those people. Please help me. Most of the traffic police are beggars. They even ready get 3 ruppees as bribe. This is India. Every signal I found many beggars. please publish this on news paper.
