After seeing Steve McQueen in that epic chase scene in ‘Bullitt’, people began dreaming about being in a similar situation just to drive their cars at breakneck speeds. And the ‘Fast and the Furious’ franchise has only emboldened that fantasy, leading to an abundance of idiots thinking that they’re Vin Diesel.
Don’t believe me? Well then, firstly you’ve to go out a lot more than you’re doing right now. And two, you’ve to see this desi Dominic Toretto in action.
In a video that’s going viral, a traffic police can be seen halting a car at the Signature Tower Chowk in Gurugram. However, the driver was in no mood to listen to the cop’s instructions.
The driver tried to flee the scene while the traffic personnel put himself in front of the car. But that didn’t stop the man from driving away, even though the cop was hanging on to the car’s bonnet. Thankfully, nobody was injured at the end of this altercation.
Check out the video here:

Its normal in Gurgaon, just that all such incidents are not reported everyday. Due to the badly planned roads & turns, driving on the wrong side has become a norm to avoid the long U turns. Mostly police too prefer to look the other way.

You might feel a sense of elitism taking over you while putting your hands on the steering wheel of your fancy car. But that doesn’t give anyone the right to run over people who are trying to make roads safe for everyone. RTOs in India should take cue from Ahmedabad’s revised law of cancelling driving licenses of such rowdy drivers.
