This superwoman from Pune kept bikers from riding through the footpaths during a traffic jam.
A senior citizen from Pune was seen taking the matter in her own hand after she saw traffic rules being broken and hindering pedestrians’ comfort. Nirmala Gokhale was seen stopping two-wheelers from riding their bikes on the footpath and that encouraged other citizens near by to do the same.
This aunty from Pune is an inspiration to many. Well done Ma’am.
Shame on Bikers who ride on footpaths. It’s sad to see senior citizens have to do the job what traffic police is supposed to do in our country.@nnatuTOI @mumbaimatterz @MNCDFbombay @mid_daypic.twitter.com/AB1TWmQPRW

Two wheeler riders are a menace.

I used to do it despite threats of physical violence; I am appalled at the lawlessness that is so easily accepted.

This happens everywhere in India. Indians are proud of not obeying rule of the road.
