A Bengaluru man recently shared a nostalgic incident from 2012 on X (formerly Twitter), highlighting a unique interaction with a traffic cop that turned into an unexpected exchange of business cards. Aashish Bansal recounted how he and his friends were fined Rs 500 for not carrying the pollution control certificate in their car.

In his tweet, Bansal reminisced about the incident, revealing that his friends rushed to withdraw money from an ATM to pay the fine. 

Upon their return, they found Bansal engaging in a conversation with one of the traffic cops, who happened to run an advertising agency. The encounter evolved into a discussion about the advertising industry, reflecting the serendipitous nature of the interaction.

Detailing the context of the incident, Bansal mentioned that they were out for a night in Bengaluru, reminiscing about the city’s earlier days when traffic was less congested, allowing for spontaneous conversations even with law enforcement officials. Reflecting on the rarity of such moments in today’s bustling cityscape, Bansal emphasized the significance of the tranquil Saturday night atmosphere that facilitated their exchange.

Responding to a query from another user, Bansal confirmed that they indeed paid the fine and even received a receipt in return. 

The anecdote resonated with many netizens, highlighting the charm of unexpected encounters and the nostalgia associated with simpler times in Bengaluru.
