I just came back home after spending a few hours shooting at the Botanical Garden of Pamplemousses. I made some very nice pictures 🙂
I can’t wait any further, here is a small preview.
However the joy of having some nice shots ended when I reached the main road of Triolet. A long queue of cars speeding towards the north with their hazard lights and headlights on too. So, they were surely doing a “rally”. Nothing bad, some cars are really nice.
But however, I was disappointed by some of the drivers. I will explain why :
- Some of them were overtaking everyone carelessly like as if they are the king of the roads.
- Since some of them had both their hazard lights on, it was impossible to know when they were overtaking a vehicle in front of them.
- Even those without hazard lights did not bother to put them on, as they learned during their driving school lessons.
- Update : I failed to mention that there was a girl (apprx 15yrs old) waiting to cross the road on a pedestrian crossing. I saw tens of those ‘tuned’ cars passing by her, nobody dared to stop to give her the way.
But I did…
The worst part of their ‘extraordinary discipline’ was at the entry point of Triolet.
A guy, with a “POLICE TRAFFIC BRANCH” fluorescent jacket (exactly the one worn by the Police motorcycle riders) stopped his motorcycle (not a police one) on the other side of the road, halting vehicles coming from both sides of the road so that he could make some way for the “tuned” cars to pass.
The shocking part was that, the guy wore a BLUE JEANS! Yes, he wore a jean and a POLICE jacket.
Surely, since he wore a jean, he was not on duty. He simply can’t be on duty if he is not in his police uniform. How can he control traffic outside his working hours and above all, wearing an official police jacket.
So, if someone came across him too or participated in the rally, can I have some explanation?
Let’s hope that someone passes the message to them, it would really help!
Unfortunately, I could not take any pictures to prove what I am saying since I was driving myself, unlike those persons who think that they can do anything with their ‘tuned‘ cars.
Have a nice sunday and keep tuned to yashvinblogs.com and yashvin.net 😛
