Break The Rules

A few weeks ago, I was waiting at one of the busiest traffic signals in Chennai. The signal was red and I was waiting right on the stop line. Somebody honked and I turned back. I saw a white SUV approaching the stop line. I thought the vehicle was going to take left and I moved to my left so that it can take the turn. But the SUV did not turn left and the vehicle slowly moved ahead of the stop line. I peeped into the vehicle and found a familiar political face but I was not sure at that time and fellow riders on the road later confirmed it. He was reading a newspaper without bothering what his driver was doing, and short of patience, with the signal still in red, the SUV vroomed ahead and sped away on the lane meant for two wheelers. What a great demonstration of social and civic responsibility??? Who will bell the cat(s)?
