It was on Friday eve with heavy traffic. When I turned right. The police was right ahead of us seeing. He didn't even signalled or stopped us to take a turn. And then he fined us saying that right turn is not allowed there.
Last week i was fined for not putting the seat belt. I was just getting out of the mall and was almost putting my seatbelt and he caught me. Asked me to stop the car and take out the license. No much talking. Took his blackberry noted down my license number and gave me a 100 Rs. Challan. Smiled at my daughter and went away.

I wonder any police would do that. I blame you to watch for those turns. I usually driving like anything when I drive bike. But if I am driving a car, I watch for proper signals.
I didn't had chance to get fine while driving my car. But given the situation creating in Chennai (OMR road), sure I will get fined for Speeding some day.
Got fine for the following while drive bike:
- Driving without license twice (1. While studying in college/2. When I started my career in Chennai)
- Driving without helmet twice
- Speeding once
I guess, you got me wrong. No Traffic police will stop you when do something like that.
My father is a police man (Crime Division). Last month, Helmet was made mandatory in my Native city (South Tamilnadu) and Traffic rules are made strict. From that instance, they are collecting 91K per day as fine money. And the new Traffic Commissioner strictly ordered all the SIs' to collect minimum of 2500 per day in my Native City.
