look up, it was about the signboard.

The traffic is slightly better at the tollbooth, at least, since the shooting incident.
Funny how only and iron rod seems to work, and not common sense.

Yeah I also saw that after the shooting incidence things are a bit better. And I do not see any anomalities with the signboard, seems ok for me.

But almost all the times we have entered badge only lines, paid the toll and went off.

You mean to say that you enter the badge only line without a badge?

I find that pretty strange. When it is a badge only line, why should one enter that line without a badge? please remember that regular commuters buy a badge or pass so that they Don't have to stop and waste time paying toll every day. When people without a pass enter that line, it delays a large number of regular commuters, making their day that much more irritating.

So apparently one would rather inconvenience others by braking the rule than be polite and follow rules.

Rightly said, I raise the issue with the driver too, the thing is every time I visit Delhi we get a different driver by the cab company and thus the same ritual of explaning goes on, but then before we realize its already on wrong lane.

Yeah, I can understand cabs do that all the time, and getting them to follow the rule is well-nigh impossible. But there are a fair number of private vehicles that do the same, and that's not pardonable.
