The goan government had launched the traffic sentinel scheme with great fanfare, and it is getting a lot of coverage in the media. However many vehicle owners who are getting challans from the traffic sentinel, are feeling that they are being punished unfairly.
In shiroda, the people who got the traffic challan were so upset, that they attacked a mobile shop owner, who they claimed was taking their photos using the cctv camera in front of his shop for issuing the challans.
The mobile phone shop owner, was forced to vacate his shop immediately
In some places like ponda, many people are protesting against the scheme, claiming that they are being harassed.
However in panaji, especially on the St Inez, miramar road, there is no traffic sentinel at all, and many people are openly violating the traffic rules, talking on their mobile.
Statistical data indicates that while rash driving is a cause of a large number of accidents in India, the poor condition of the roads in India is also one of the major causes of accidents in India. Many drivers meet with accidents trying to avoid potholes or falling into potholes on the roads all over India. The problem is particularly severe during the monsoon, as large parts of the road are washed away.
The uneven surface of the roads also damage the vehicles, and the vehicles parts may get damaged. In some cases the damaged part may be repaired, however other parts may have to be replaced. So garages and repair shops are doing brisk business during the monsoon as many vehicle owners have to get their vehicle repaired. Only in some cases, the damage is covered by insurance.
Countries like Singapore are also close to the Equator, and have a tropical climate, however the condition of the roads is far better. The poor condition of the roads, is due to the rampant identity theft of engineers in India, by the government, intelligence and security agencies , with experienced engineers held a virtual prisoner, while the relatives and friends of top officals like caro, mandrekar, nayak, hathwar, kodancha, fake engineering degrees to get lucrative raw/cbi jobs with monthly salary at the expense of the engineer.
One of the reasons why people purchase a car, is because they do not have to rely on public transport, renting a taxi, cab and they have complete flexibility . However it is observed that a vehicle can breakdown anytime, and it is very difficult to get any help.
The vehicle was a Tata Nano, purchased in 2016, and in August 2018, the engine was not working , car was not starting after the key was inserted
The battery appeared to working properly, because all the lights of the car were working
On Sunday, the car owner tried his best to get support, contact a repair person, however everything was closed in Panaji.
The user manual was kept at home, so the customer support could also not be contacted.
Finally the next day, the customer support was contacted and after spending a lot of time, the car was finally repaired.
The newspapers reported a number of vehicle accidents in goa during the monsoon, caused by the loss of control of the vehicle.
In one case in July 2018, a lady from Ribandar died because the driver lost control of the vehicle he was driving. In the city, the cars are driven at a low speed, however outside, the speeds of the car are higher, and the risk of an accident are higher.
In another cases, a young woman who was seated pillion on a motorcycle lost her life, as her brother lost control of his vehicle trying to avoid a bison which appeared in his path, in Sattari.
There are many wild animals in the rural parts of goa, and they can cause vehicle accidents
Unlike most other investments or major purchases like a home which appreciate in value over a period of time, a vehicle is a depreciating asset, whose value decreases as the age increases. There are also many expenses related to owning a vehicle , like the annual insurance which has to be paid, and maintenance of the vehicle is also periodically required, and the car owner also has to arrange parking space.
In most cities and towns there is some form of public transport which can be availed of, so while owning one car may be convenient, owning multiple cars and other vehicles indicates that the family is very wealthy, has plenty of black and or white money
So instead of falsely accusing the broke domain investor who does not own any vehicle of having black money, tax evasion, trying to find non existent proof, the ntro, raw, cbi, google,tata employees should check the assets, income and expenses of the raw/cbi employees who actually purchased new vehicles like school dropout cbi employee gujju housewife naina R&AW employees , goan gsb fraud diploma holder siddhi mandrekar, goan bhandari sex worker sunaina chodan
After reaching a low a few years ago, crude oil prices have also increased significantly in 2018, and are at their highest in the last few years. In addition to increasing the exchange rate of the Indian rupee and the us dollar, as India is a major importer of oil, one of the major effects of the increasing prices could be the sale of cars with a diesel and petrol engine.
Earlier many people were preferring to purchase a car with a diesel engine, though it was costlier, as the price of diesel was lower than petrol
When the prices of crude oil fell, there was hardly any difference in the price of petrol and diesel, so the sale of diesel engine vehicles decreased. It would be interesting to find whether the crude oil prices will continue to increase.
Compared to United States, Japan, electric cars are not widely used in India
While intelligence and security agency employees are quick to ridicule indian citizens who do not drive a vehicle, especially a car, there are some risks of owning and driving a vehicle. The media reported that a WagonR car caught fire in Ponda Goa, while the driver was driving the car.
Luckily the car owner escaped, however he was unable to extinguish the fire using a conventional fire extinguisher.
A photo of the car owner trying to extinguish the flames of the car was featured in some of the major english newspapers in Goa
The fire could be only be extinguished after the fire brigade was called.
However it was too late, to retrieve the car, and the loss to the vehicle owner is estimated at Rs 3 Lakh
Most apartment complexes have a parking slot for flat owners, however the location of the parking slot is important . For some parking slots it is easy to remove the car , reverse it, while other parking slots may be very narrow , or have a narrow entrance.
So the car owner has to be very careful while removing or keeping the car from the parking slot
There is only a clearance of a few centimeters between the entrance of the parking slot and the car, especially if the car has mirrors.
So if the car owner is not alert, he is very likely to damage the car, causing scratches
Also parking and removing the car from the parking slot is very time consuming, reversing the car, the time taken may be 10 minutes or more. A person can take a bus and reach panaji, in less time.
One of the considerations while traveling long distances is the capacity of the vehicle, the number of people who can be seated in the vehicle.
If a person is invited to go to a place, they cannot get anyone along, as the trip organizer may not be able to accommodate another person.
Usually most vehicles have a seating capacity of 4 persons + 1 driver
So if an additional person is going on the trip, it can be difficult to accommodate,unless there are small children.
Sports Utility vehicles have a larger capacity and may be able to accommodate 7 persons + driver.
The rental charges for larger vehicles are also higher .
