I do not understand the cops!
I appreciate and respect the Police Department. The Bible teaches me to pray for them. They are meant to maintain law and order in the land and therefore they require divine grace and enablement.
The Bible also teaches me to not be lawless, therefore I do not jump signals. I have stopped so many times at junctions and waited to turn left when the signal is green. I have been often appreciated by other drivers with honks and have many times been yelled at. But this is expected as most of the drivers seem to think of the signal as a pain and waste of time.
But what irks me more is that a traffic cop on duty would be irritated by the honking and ask me to break the signal! This has happened to me on multiple occasions at different junctions in Mysore and most notably at the Metropole junction on JLB road.
Today however things were different. There were cops at this junction fining those who jumped signal to turn left at the Metropole junction much to my delight.
I am glad that they have decided to bring in order. But was this not their job all along? Were they not supposed to defend me when I was right not to break signal?
I long to see the department be more consistent in their maintenance of law and order.
