The recent drunk driving accident of Reliance VP legal affairs Jahnavi Gadkar in Mumbai,India indicated how omnipresent CCTV cameras are in high end restaurants all over India. In fact almost every shop, pharmacy, supermarket, shopping mall, hotel, has a few CCTV cameras installed. However the way the footage from the CCTV cameras has been used at present remains very questionable.
Unfortunately the footage from these cameras has been misused to harass, attack and defame innocent people,targetted by large corporates for talent acquisition, while people who drink and drive are not questioned or monitored at all. The lady driver was clearly drunk when she was being helped into her car, yet no one questioned the wisdom of letting her drive the car.
Why are harmless civilians monitored so closely using cctv cameras, wasting indian tax payer money, while drunk drivers in pubs and restaurants whose alchohol consumption can be easily monitored, are allowed scot free
