New Delhi, April 3 (IANS) People hate red lights, said the Supreme Court Wednesday hoping that some day they will be spared of the VIP escort cars, except that of the constitutional functionaries, passing by them with their sirens blaring.
“Some time it will happen today or tomorrow,” said the apex court bench of Justice G.S. Singhvi and Justice Kurien Joseph pointing out that the problem of people being at the receiving end of VIP security was rooted in the carving out of “exceptions, exemptions and regularisation”.
“We can tell you without fear of contradiction that people hate red lights,” said Justice Singhvi, adding that vehicles of those who use beacon lights unauthorisedly should be confiscated instead of being challaned.
The court was hearing a petition related to illegal use of beacon lights and will continue the proceedings Thursday.
