ARROGANCE OF VOTE CASTE INFLUENCE -LEDS 24 Mar 2007

With reference to the atrocious behaviour of government servant Vijayakumar directed at the police, when caught violating oneway rule.
This is a totally intolerable attitude and has to be punished most severely.
This kind of rowdy behaviour is born of the powerful unholy marriage of VOTE and CASTE.
It is encouraged and perpetuated by the influence raj that is rampant.

At the least he should be thrown out of his job.

Every single Bangalorean needs to do his duty to ease the traffic mess.
It can be by strictly following rules, reporting violations and supporting the enfocement efforts of DCP Saleem and similar minded officials, like him are doing.
That only 15 percent of violators pay the fine is a sad postscript which is a mockery of enforcement.
Some facts to mull over the miserable traffic state we have turned India, especially Bangalore into.
It is well known that cell phone driving impairs driving ability equally as alcohol.
We are pumping atleast 2000 tonnes of pollutants DAILY into Bangalore's atmosphere with the petroleum products we are consuming.
Pollution kills 3 times as many as traffic accidents claim.
Honking encourages rash and reckless driving and deafeningly affects 24000 people in each square, kilometer. It leads to irreversible hearing loss.
These are all very high costs for the meagre questionable luxury driving brings.
Which should raise the question Where are we going?
Let us wake up and do everything or atleast some thing.
