Pune Traffic is ridiculous. Pune Traffic Police do precious little do improve it. Perhaps they are understaffed. Perhaps they are under-motivated. Whatever the case, the traffic sucks. And now this.
The traffic police will be imposing fines for not wearing helmets. Ok, good. But here’s the kicker:
But the fines would be imposed only if the two-wheeler riders violate traffic rules like jumping signals or lane cutting. For example, if a two-wheeler rider without a helmet jumps a traffic signal, the police would penalise him for jumping the signal and for not wearing a helmet.
Say what? Does that also mean there won’t be a fine if I jump a signal with a helmet?
Only in Pune, I say!
