Why have I received a violation notice for the vehicle I have already sold?

Notices are generated by computers picking up address from transport department records. The very fact you have received a notice means that vehicle continues to be on your name in the records even though you might have sold it. Selling the vehicle without insisting on change of ownership is a very dangerous practice. Signing a delivery note is no guarante e of change of ownership. You have to insist on buyer registering the vehicle in his name, failing which you have to get it done yourself at RTO. Unless you do so, you will continue to receive violation notices. Still worse can happen if the vehicle is inv olved in a fatal accident or terrorist activity or any other objectionable act. You will have to suffer the consequences.

I crossed the stop line seeing green signal. But traffic in front of me was not moving
and I got penalized.

Even if signal is green you should not enter the junction unless the tail of the traffic in front of you is moving. Otherwise you will create gridlock and block cross traffic too.

I crossed stop line before the signal turning red, while it was still yellow. But I could not clear the junction due to congestion ahead. Why was I fined for signal jumping?

Yellow signal is provided only for those vehicles which have already crossed stop line to clear the junction. You are not expected to enter the junction when the green light has al ready changed to yellow.

Why are junctions painted cris-cross in the center?

Cris - Cross marking indicates “no standing”. Unless one is sure of clearing the junction, he should not enter the junction even if the signal light is green, because it will bloc k the cross traffic and lead to grid - lock.

parked?

It is not possible to put one board for each vehicle. “No parking” is notified by gazette notifications and then boards are erected. Each board indicates that roughly 50 m each side of boards is no- parking area. That is why boards are put 100 m apart. You may also refer to Rule 15 of Rules of Road Regulations, 1989.

How do I know how much can I drink to remain within permissible limit?
How do I know how much can I drink to remain within permissible limit?

And therefore, larger quantity consumed over longer duration will still keep the person within permissible limits. However, these measures are indicative in nature.

Why can’t signals clear entire traffic in one cycle?

World over, time cycle (completing all 4 directions) does not exceed 180 sec. Due to ex cessive vehicle density, we have time cycles up to 200 sec. About 25 junctions in city have time cycles even up to 250 sec. This is not a healthy trend and our aim is to bring down upper limit to 200 sec. If time cycle is extended unlimited to clear complete traffic then it causes irritability to the other directions. If entire piled up traffic does not clear in one go, it is actually a problem of capacity of junction i.e. inadequacy of infrastructure and not the signaling system.
