Man gets fined for following all traffic rules
Apr 10, 2015, 11.00 AM
In a bizarre turn of events, a man from Gurgaon was heavily fined for following all the traffic rules. "I was waiting for the red light to turn green when a traffic cop approached me and asked me to step out of the car. He then asked me to pay the penalty for waiting so nonchalantly at a red light. I was shocked at first and when I told him that I have the driving license and other relevant papers, he doubled the fine," said the man, unable to wrap his head around the fact that he was fined for following all the rules.
The traffic cop narrated his version of the story and said, "It is uncanny to see a person waiting at a red light these days. I observed him for two minutes during which he didn't honk even once nor did he show any signs of being in a hurry. This caught my attention and I pounced on him. When I saw that he was even carrying all the relevant documents, I decided to fine him heavily. Jumping at a red light is considered an innate talent and if you don't do it, it raises suspicion. I have been a traffic cop for the last 20 years and I have seen that the only people who follow traffic rules are foreigners, so when an Indian abides by the traffic rules, which happens once in a blue moon, doubts arise over his motive."
这位交警讲述了这故事他自己的版本，“当今时日，看到一个人在等红灯是很离奇的，我观察了他2分钟，其间他甚至一次喇叭也没按，也沒显出一点着急的样子。这引起了我的注意，于是我一下子朝他扑了过去。当我见到他甚至还带着全部有关证件，我决定重重罚他。闯红灯被认为是天性，但要是你不那么干，就会让人起疑心。过去20年来，我一直干交警，而我看到遵守交通规则的只有外国人，因此，当一个印度人在遵守交通规则 - 那只有当太阳从西边出来，对他动机的怀疑油然而生。”
An onlooker who witnessed the entire event, said, "Breaking traffic rules has become such an Indian thing that if you follow the rules you will be looked down upon. In our times, this man who followed all the rules is like the 8th wonder of the world and he should have known better. I hope that this heavy fine will teach him a lesson."

I am driving the car in Delhi for the last five years. I have not seen a single car to stop before zebra crossing. While in Chennai, stepping on zebra crossing gets you immediate challan. Traffic in NCR is bizarre.

In these days of rampant corruption the paint on the zebra crossing getting destroyed or invisible after the rains, how does one see whether he/she is inside or on the zebra crossing lines.
