Summoned 2 police officers to take appropriate action against a car washer

Good morning friends.

Wonderful Saturday, isn’t it? And some people thought that it was the ideal sunny day to wash their cars. Their worst mistake, as long as I’m around. Let’s see how.

Some mins ago, I was walking to my car, parked near MCB Triolet when I noticed a guy washing his car with a running water through a hose, in a private lane. I observed carefully. Yes, it was a water hose, connected to a water tap, just like any other one.

Just then, 2 police officers (including a woman police officer) passed by, totally ignoring the car washer, even though water was overflowing the private lane and started to flow over the main road of Triolet too.

Police Officers, Y U NO SEE?

I approached the two of them, and asked them politely : “Eski gagne droit lave loto r lanse?”.

“No” replied the woman police officer.

“B kouma zotte pas ine remarker ki sa boug la p lave so loto en grand avec 1 lanse?” I replied back, pointing to the car. As far as I know, there is a prohibition for washing of cars/buildings since the 9th February 2012. The other police officer got closer and asked what was the problem. I told him the same thing and drew their attention on the fact that they have not noticed this water wastage.

It was then that they decided to walk to the spot while I stood at a distance, snapping pictures with my temporary 2MP mobile camera. They were noting down something on their notepad when I approached them to inform them that I will personally come to the Police Station to follow up the matter. One of the police officers asked for my name, which I gave without hesitation.

Satisfied that I fulfilled my responsibility as a law abiding Mauritian, I walked to my car while more people (including the car owners) gathered around the police officers.

I will keep you updated as I said, I will personally follow up this matter.

Keep tuned and remember, never fear anyone as long as you are confident. Lastly, I repeat, hate me as much as you can, because I dare to say the bitter truth!

Cheers,

Yashvin

Update @ 17:59

As promised, I went to the police station to follow up the case. I spent nearly 30minutes with a police constable, who was very understanding and helpful! A quick sum up for you :

According to the Police Diary Book, the police officers (new recruits) issued only a warning to the vehicle owner. Period.

I asked the police constable if this was what in the law, that is, does the police have a right to issue only a warning, because as far as I know, there is absolutely no warnings to be issued. You are caught wasting water, a police case  is filed against you and appropriate actions will be taken (fines/imprisonment). The police constable agreed with me and I said that I will personally ensure that this case is handled properly.

He wrote an entry into the police diary book  and he assured me that he will look into the matter and verbalise the person, according to the law. He took my phone number and I told him not to worry, I will myself come again to the police station because it is not normal that (1) I had to inform the police officers of their job and (2) No action was taken.

Finally, as some people commented that I am an ass hole. Note to them : Just make sure you don’t come into my way because I may sh*t on you! 😛

Post will be updated as needed. Keep tune for updates.

Yashvin.

Update 15th April 2012 :

I paid a visit to the Police Station yesterday and met the police constable who talked to me the week before. I asked him about the case. He told me that he already talked to some police sergeant or inspector who said that they will fine the guy.

“How can I be sure that the work is being done?” I inquired?

He told me that he will give me a call during the week to inform me of any new development in my complaint.

So, till now, nothing yet. Let’s wait…

Update 16th April 2012 :

A police constable from Triolet Police Station gave me a call today. He told me that legal actions are being taken against the person mentioned above.

Still, I will try to see if I can get any proof about what has been said to me over the phone.

Thanks for your support,

Yashvin
