Bangalore Autowallah vs Traffic Police - English To Kannada

Nice conversation between Autowallah and Traffic Police in Bangalore.

In English:
Once Autowallah was driving and suddenly Traffic Police stopped him and asked him to get down.
Autowallah: why ??
Traffic Police : Your auto is overloaded. You're supposed to carry only 2/3 people on back but you're carrying 5 people on back
and 2 people in the front - either side of you (driver). You've to pay fine now and repeated offence or traffic violation leads to license cancellation in the future.
Autowallah: Ok sir. By the way, Is this traffic rule applies to any vehicle in the city ??
Traffic Police : YES.
Autowallah: Are you sure ??
Traffic Police : YES, Of course.
Autowallah: Sir, please stop that BMTC(government) Bus ?
Traffic Police : Why ??
Autowallah: Bus is overloaded Sir. It is supposed to carry approx. 50 people but it carries nearly 150 people which is violating the traffic rules right?
!!! Traffic Police astonished !!!

The above conversation is translated into Kannada which is as follows:
In Kannada:

I have noticed traffic police in USA and Japan being very respectful to the vehicle owners.

But in India they seem to hate which is evident in the way they speak and impose fine for trivial cause.

I think this attitude will hinder tourism and investments in the region.

How to fix this problem?
