Cop : can you pls park your car to the side.
I pull up to the side of the road.

hi i am on deputation and will be living in pune for only 2 months.I have a two wheeler bearing karnataka registration.I am well aware that i dont have to pay road tax of maharashtra since i am not going to live here for more than few months and my vehicle bears a personal number plate not a commercial ones.I have been caught 3 times and have been forced to pay bribes ranging from 500 to 600. its really a matter of shame how we are being exploited by people who are supposed to serve the citizen. I am already feeling alien and am tired of shelling out my hard earned money for all this things.Can anyone suggest how i can fight against this type of corruption.
This goes back 6-7 months where my passport verfication was pending. There was no intimation from the Police that the verification is pending. When i visited the station, a bribe of 500 INR was asked. I didnt paid the bribe. However my passport arrived home after a month.
I was traveling in my car (Kerala registration KL-XXXX) near Secunderabad railways. One police man controlling traffic in front of Railway station stopped my car. He asked me to park my vehicle to side of the road. I parked the vehicle at the side of the road. Then this guy came and asked for NOC and other certificates. I said I have all certificates including the Andhra Road tax which I paid (Rs. 43,000/- (Forty Three Thousand/-)). All documents he asked was with me in my car. Then he said my car's number plate is not as per standard. He said it should be like this and that. I am sure my number plate is as per standards (Black on white without any fancy numbers or other decorations.) Then he said I need to pay fine of Rs. 1000/- I said I will not pay. Then he said pay Rs 200/- and go. Without paying that he said he will not leave. He was talking in Telugu and it seems he don't know any English. I paid Rs. 100/- and he happily accepted.
