Pune: Adherencing to traffic rules is essential, yet it’s not uncommon to witness drivers flouting them, especially during off-peak hours when law enforcement presence is minimal.

In a refreshing display of adherence to traffic regulations, a user on X (formerly Twitter) shared a snapshot of a Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Ltd (PMPML) bus driver halting at a traffic signal at the early hour of 6:30 AM.

“Be the change you want to see in others! I was thrilled to see this bus driver patiently waiting at the red traffic light at 6:30 in the morning when there was virtually no one on the road. It just requires a collective will,” the user captioned the image.

The post garnered attention from several other users, who chimed in with witty comments and commendations.

“This is possible only by Photoshop or this driver must be new in the city or this may be his first day of the job,” said a third user.

“We should give an award to the driver,” said another X user

“Such discipline is universal in Kerala. Most large roads r covered by camera, & fines are imposed ruthlessly. My own car was fined by the Kerala Police for overspeeding. My Grandmother was about to be buried in another dt,& driving from Kochi, my car broke down. To see her face one last time, I floored the accelerator after repair. The cameras caught me, & I paid the fine”

“It is not about Kerala but about traffic discipline which is rare in #Pune. One must congratulate the PMT bus driver!!! Kudos to him!!!!”
