    when people itself cannot accept folks from outside state what are we expecting from the cops... they anyways want to mint money.
    graciously we are the chosen ones...

    Bangalore. My god. I cone from Chennai and every useless cop stops me. Every single one. No matter time of day, location or speed. And harass.

    "Oh you can't speak Kannada why have you come to karnataka"

    One cops seized my bike and threatened to beat me with a lathi unless I paid him 4k, called parents and they cane from Chennai to sort it out. Really the worst state I have been to on two wheels.

    Next time, get the whole thing recorded and put it on youtube or facebook. If the police are on social media, alert them too (Don't know about Mumbai, but Bangalore Traffic & L&O commissioners are active on facebook and twitter and reply too).

    i agree on this part.. these days even HYD police is active on FB and you should post such stuff on their public page as if they get bombarded on public forum for such stupid stuff they do. they will understand where they are heading. make sure you keep the names of them "stupid constables" handy..

    on a side note : please create a new account and do it. sometimes repercussion can happen. this is india.. safety first..

    I remember a friend of mine was assaulted for no reason for posting such stuff online oin social websites.. he was stopped despite of using helmet. the entire conversation was recorded where the cop was asking for bribe.. my friend said he is ready to pay the fine in court and that cop lost my friend's Driving License.. the recording didn't do of much help..

    Tell your local friend (who can speak local language, same city registered bike) to put on GoPro and see if he is being caught. I am very sure he will not be caught. This is pure case of harassment and nothing else.

    Incase you would have been a foreigner (American, Britisher etc.), they would have clicked pictures with you, would have happily smiled and let you go for same thing.

    These policemen are more nuisance to common people than to actual criminals, that is why nobody respects them. There is no prohibition on using go pro as far as it is not a camera prohibited area. I have lost faith in police department, I was once stopped for wearing knee guards and using a Mercury tinted visor on my helmet, The 'Thulla' (locally called so) demanded a bribe of 200INR which I never paid and argued with him and got away.

I am from Chennai and this happened in Noida.. Just because I didn't know Hindi (when I was new to Delhi NCR), I was harassed.. Thankfully, one of my colleagues came to my rescue and helped me out.. I am an Indian.. not an Alien..

    Now coming to the topic, I don't think or ever heard of cams or gopros being banned unless like what the monk has said.. there are no restrictions to record a video or click pics unless it is mentioned "Photography is PROHIBITED"
    This is the real face of Indian diversity bro, they are the bloody f*****d racist people who do this.

    This thread couldn't have come at a better time! My gopro will arrive in few days, I am planning to shoot extensively during weekends for my Youtube channel content. Glad to know that it is not illegal to shoot in public. I have been questioned quiet a few times while I go for photo walks with my DSLR, best way to not have an argument is to prove them that you are not some media group trying to spy on anyone, showing the content helped me few times, but showing videos of riding will get you into trouble I guess, speed limit in some areas are like 20km/hr.
