Paid bribe to traffic police.

Reported on August 9, 2019 from Bangalore , Karnataka  ι Report #211511

I was at the PSK for my passport work. PSK has a parking behind the building and I went there to park my bike. While coming back towards outer ring road. there is a service road and main road.

There is a no entry board which prohibits vehicles from entering the road towards marathahalli as that is one way traffic road.
But that board is bent an one can't notice it if you are coming from the visitor parking of PSK.
I too missed the sign as it was not visible. Police constable caught me. I explained that the board is not visible. He started shouting on me. He asked his subordinate to took my bike. His subordinate snatched the keys and started pushing me off my bike.
Then he asked I'll have to pay a fine of 1100 otherwise he will take my bike to court.
In the meantime he scanned my documents where were all fine and he was not able to find any issue there.
I keep on insisting that missing the sign is not my mistake, it's not visible from where I am coming.
He then started asking 500 and told if I pay he'll let me go. Had no choice at that moment and had to pay that about.
I understand traffic rules are meant to be obeyed but in situations like this it is just harassment by the authorities.

Why that sign board is not made visible from all the corners of the road?
