Rules are meant for idiots

If you live in Bangalore and drive around, you would have doubtlessly experienced people jumping traffic lights. Even as the red signal is counting down to a changeover to green, traffic jumps the signal a full 10-15 counts ahead of time. The biggest violators are BMTC buses and autorickshaws. But the most most shameless transgressors are educated, well-heeled people driving around in swank cars.

If you happen to be among the unfortunate few law-abiding motorists who patiently wait for the signal to turn green, you will become the target of abuses by those who want to blatantly jump the signal, for not making way for them. Sadly, traffic constables remain silent bystanders. This must be the only country where law abiding citizens are subjected to indiginity while those in the breach of it get away scot free. If there is one lesson I have learnt, it is that it does not pay to play by the rules in this land.
