Times of India:
Traffic violations, apart from making life difficult for beat cops, are also raking in moolah for the traffic police, according to city 
police commissioner R Sekar. The amount collected also points a finger at the rising number of traffic violations in the city in recent months and also better enforcement of traffic rules.

“The city police have collected Rs 77,000 as fine amount till date this year from Metropolitan Transport Corporation (MTC) alone for violating traffic rules and getting involved in accidents. The traffic police have already collected a fine amount of Rs 7.12 crore so far this year as against Rs 5.35 crore for the corresponding period in 2007,” city police commissioner R Sekar told mediapersons at the commissionerate after inspecting the display of stolen valuables which were recovered by the police.
