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.
