funny stories about people related to traffic violations

Businessman Fined Equivalent of Rs. 38.4 lakh For Speeding
While some people in India are of the opinion that the proposed fines under the Road Transport and Safety Bill-2014 are a bit too much, there's someone who will be paying a more than just a hefty fine for speeding.Reima Kuisla, a Finnish businessman and a millionaire, was issued a speeding ticket for driving at almost 103Km/h (64mph) in a zone with a speed limit of about 80Km/h (50mph). The speeding ticket cost Kuisla a colossal 54,024 euros - that's nearly $59,000 or Rs. 38.4 lakh.
How did he rack up that fine, you ask. Authorities in Finland deems speeding related offenses comparatively more serious than others and calculates the fine based on income. The fine is based on half of the concerned driver's daily net income. Interestingly, the number of children living with the offender and an amount considered to be enough to cover basic living expenses also factor in. This number is then multiplied by the number of days of income the offender should lose, which is in accordance with the severity of the offense.
It was assessed that Kuisla should lose 8 days of pay, and his fine was calculated from his 2013 income - a dandy 6,559,742 euros (over $7 million). Hence, the fat fine.
Kuisla was obviously not impressed and took to Facebook to express that opinion along with a picture of his speeding ticket. It has sparked a huge debate with considerable support for both sides; some said Finland's practice of 'rich people should pay more' is a form of taxation.

Man Accidently Fined For Not Wearing a Helmet While Driving a Car
Shailender Singh was issued a fine on May 24 in Meerut for not wearing a helmet; the only problem here is that he was driving a car. Interestingly, the traffic cop who issued the challan even put Singh's Maruti Swift's registration number on the receipt.
Singh was on his way to a doctor's appointment for his 4-month-old son and was already running late, when he was stopped by traffic cop Shivraj Singh, who demanded to see the car's papers. Singh claims the papers were all in order, and yet he was being held. This led to a fierce argument, which consequently ended with him being issued a challan.
He contacted the senior superintendent of police, and an enquiry has been initiated.
Shivraj Singh, the traffic police officer in question, says he flagged down Singh because he was talking on the phone while driving. He had asked the incharge of the area's chowki to issue a challan, who charged him for not wearing a helmet instead. Shivraj insists it was a mistake, and has been exaggerated.
