Nice conversation between Autowallah and Traffic Police in Bangalore.
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?
