It is now possible for anyone to find vehicle details within Bengaluru (Bangalore) jurisdiction.
RTO (Regional Transport Office), Bangalore provides this service to anyone through SMS.
To get details, users have to just SMS, RTO followed by registration no. (Example: RTO KA-‘XX’-MR-‘XXXX’) to 56006.
Messages charge will be INR 3.
However, this leaves most of us wondering if technology can be used for anti-social activities. As transport commissioner Bhaskar Rao points out, this service can be used to extract personal and private details of even those who are not involved in any hit-and-run-cases, like for example – miscreants can use this service to get details of girls in the city.
Note : This point can surely be used while debating whether ‘Technology is a boon or a bane‘!!

You would have experienced this if you are from Tier 1 / 2 cities. Auto rickshaw, cab / taxi drivers say NO whenever they want, when you want it the most! Want to get back at them? Here’s your opportunity: Meter JAM
This is what the site reads:
Why Meter JAM – Because strikes need a strike back! We’re tired of meter that always reads more than it should, drivers who refuse to ply and demand return fare whenever they want. And if all that wasn’t enough, now we have to deal with strikes too, any time the ‘unions’ decide!
Everyone is holding the janta to ransom. How much more will we pay? It’s time to turn the tables.
So on 12th August, shake your head and say NO if an auto driver offers a ride!
Though this will affect those who sincerely work, those who do not put up their price or come whenever and where ever you want them to, may be a lesson to the ‘Unions’, which will help them understand – what others go through when they go on a strike …
