  2. There are laws to fine people who violate... but there are no laws to fine our police who dont care about traffic, who just stands out there in the traffic watching the Jam... no laws to fine our leaders who only cares about their positions and money, who dont care about the daily increasing traffic and bloody hell kind of roads...
    Who are responsible for all these traffic, bumpy roads, pollution etc etc... Are the people responsible? What ever it is, there are solid laws to fine people for violating.... We are living here with all this pain... Great India..


    People are anyways fined through these hell like roads, heavy traffic, pollution, cost of fuel etc etc etc... Leaders, please wake up... people are looking for justice... Are you not able to see this traffic, pollution and the problems faced by the general innocent public... If you are taking a chance to ignore your own duty why not people take a chance to violate the traffic rules... If leaders neglect their own duties for which they are elected why should the people follow traffic rules and why should the people pay fines for violating...



    Fine the leaders and then fine the people... Why should always the people be the ultimate sufferers... for increase in fuel, for increase in dollar rate, for increase in taxes, heavy traffic etc etc..

  6. Have you driven a car in Indian cities like in Hyderabad traffic very frequently? Have you seen the crowd there during office hours? Have you experienced how long time you have to wait to cross the signal and how many times you will see the green signal it appreared but still you are far away from the signal to cross it because of heavy traffic and bumpy roads?

    I think your answer is 'No'. Otherwise you would not have asked such a question. No one is happily tries to break the rule, but it's just a mistake, could be getting late to office because of heavy traffic. Irritated of falling on the big holes in the damaged roads...
