I don't know how to begin this post....I am really really angry. Traffic sense in my city...there is just one word for it-'atrocious'!I am still a novice at driving the car, so papa accompanies me each time. Driving today, I almost got clobbered twice; what makes me indignant is that it was not my fault-people are blatantly jumping red lights without even glancing at the traffic policemen standing on the roads- I was shocked!! Look at their gall too, they had the audacity to stare at me as if it was my fault for moving when it was MY signal!
What makes this all the more worse is- these very people when they go on travels and tours abroad behave the way they are expected to behave and toe the line as far as the traffic rules are concerned. Why to go far-I have seen people behaving as responsible citizens when they glimpse the periphery of the State Capital! The question that pops into my mind here is why this sudden concern for rules when you go outside your city? Why these dual personalities with the best one reserved for outside the city & the other one not even caring two hoots for the welfare of the land where you were born and brought up?
It is high time that people understand the importance of the guidelines framed by the government for THEIR benefit. There is no use in blaming the government for each and every mishap and inefficiency. When will people themselves awaken from their slumber? When will it be realised that with freedom comes responsibility too?
Jaago, logon Jaago!
