The Bangalore traffic police will set up special centres to remove sun films free from May 10 following the Supreme Court ban on the use of such films. These centres will function between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.

The police plan to conduct a special drive for the prosecution of violators from May 19. After the apex court imposed the ban on May 4, the police had announced a 15-day buffer period for the removal of any materials on safety glasses, front and rear windscreens and side glasses.

This is like burning the house to kill rats. It is true that anti social elements misuse the closed cabins with dark films on the glass. But what have we, the public done to get all the curse for their activities. We, the public are getting, sun burns, loss of security while traveling with family - especially ladies (staring), high fuel expenditure because of Air condition and of course petty/fine from the police. What an India, some one does the crime and the public suffers from both sides. However, giving respect to the supreme court, I removed the paper from both my cars for Rs. 400/-. Please serve the public, don't curse them and make them suffer. We are already suffering day by day to pay taxes as well. When will this stop and who will stop this, God knows.

This is not at all good in summer to remove the sun film. This government is not taking of their people's health.

I feel the court and government have not provided enough attention on the issue. Following points are neglected for the security of VIPs:
1. Security of the common people especially when ladies driving alone or traveling with ladies. If VIPs can enjoy the security of dark tinted glasses why not for tax payers.2. Extra cost of fuel for running the Air-conditioner.

It costed more than Rs. 2000 to get the sun film which was very useful to avoid getting sun burst. Now we have to pay Rs. 500 to Rs. 800 to remove it. The least the govt. can do is to remove it for free. What is your problem with that?

Why this extra work for police,for that would result in non availability of adequate number of police force,for other important purposes.Since,15 days of buffer period had already been given to the vehicle owners to remove the film,the police can directly take action against the defaulters after 15 days penalising them to the extent possible,as a deterrent.This is how,the authorities are wasting the work force for simple matters,leaving aside important matter go hey wire.
