Delhi cops facing problem in checking illegal beacon lights
New Delhi: A senior Delhi Traffic Police officer on Saturday tweeted that his department was facing problems checking illegal use of red beacon lights on vehicles, terming it as a "tendency to look important when one is not".
Satyendra Garg, joint commissioner of police (traffic), wrote on the Facebook wall of the Delhi Traffic Police (DPT) that the department recently caught an Ambassador car of a prominent builder of the city with a red beacon light.
"A vehicle with red beacon was caught in Mehrauli area. The vehicle was blowing siren. When checked, it was found that the vehicle was a private white ambassador belonging to one prominent builder of the city. The builder had given this vehicle to a politician of a regional party who unauthorisedly put the red beacon and siren," he wrote.
The vehicle was impounded and slapped a fine of Rs 2,800.
"We have written for the cancellation of the (car`s) registration certificate. The problem remains. The so-called leaders violate rules flagrantly and want to get away. Not many people will stop a white ambassador (car) with red beacon. The tendency to throw weight (around) and look important when one is not," Garg pointed out.
