i was a Desperado in India until 23,
when i got my Licence in UAE it made me a 100% Conformist,
now when I am in ((Pune)) being a Conformist has become a big danger as evryone seems to be driving when its Red and stopping in the flow of moving traffic means getting bumped. right Puneites!!!!
there are very few Red signals at which people really do stop

tend to be a conformist...but in chennai you could get rear ended for doing this , cause the MTC bus walla is hell bent on getting through.....rather pay for jumping a stop signal than to sell your car for scrap.

I have already been bumped from behind for following rules, by some one who was not following it. Remember the strange bangalore police who open up the traffic even on the wrong lanes at traffic signals?!?!

I am a conformist, just believe that if I want people to have road sense, I've got to practice it myself. I Can't complain about reckless drivers, lack of civility and road sense, and incessant honking if I almost mow down people by doing 60 on a narrow road, break one-way's because the next U-turn is 1 km away and shout at guys who stop at a red light. It's not right.
And I think that most of the people who vote are going to be conformists. Catch the mavericks of which there are plenty here I an absolutely certain actually coming out and saying they have no respect for the rules and like to flout the law

I am a conformist but sometimes when I am alone on weekends I try on my wife's shoes.

What a wonderfully law-abiding membership!
After most of my life driving in UK, going through a red light hurts! We don't even have free lefts there: a red light means STOP even at 3.00am in a deserted village and, yes, the lights will still be working.
But I'm with Lemon and others: I'm not going to sit there and get crushed for my law-abiding pains!
I wonder about a sister poll (maybe it exists already): do you compulsively bully all other traffic out of the way? Drive at the speed of the traffic generally? Or just go your own speed whatever?
I think the questions need to be better thought out: if anyone feels like it....

Confirmist 100% of the time, even at the expense of getting honked by a lot of stupidos. Believe me there are a lot of them in Bangalore.
What use is the decent background or a good job, if you are not respecting fellow motorists on the street? by doing what these guys do, they are putting other peoples lives at risk (not to mention their own)
What we can do at TBHP to enforce this is

I think I am a conformist. Otherwise I wouldn't have been honked at today morning at Panjagutta. But sometimes I am a maverick too. In the crazy traffic of Hyderabad, I try to maintain lanes. I don't know what you will call that.
