By the Book

That’s how we all should really be, by the book. Well, at least in situations when it serves our own purposes, may it be to save our skin (the single or of the double variety, take your pick), or may it be to re-inflate our ego or to just excercise our right to teach the letter of the law to the authorities themselves.
Next time some forklift hauls your vehicle, and you have to walk the walk, Rs 200 in hand towards the carlifter’s make-shift impound, keep this in mind:

…according to the Motor Vehicle Rules 1969, the authority to remove a vehicle rested with the traffic police and not with the city government.

Read the complete story here.
Go ahead, test your luck. If you actually get away, you will have something to tell your friends, almost in a boasting manner. And oh yeah, you can also try not to park in No Parking areas, give more than two figs about other cars/people on the same roads and try to be ethically correct (as opposed to politcally correct!). Good luck.
