Traffic sense in Mumbai has over the years become Traffic Nonsense – lane cutting, arbitrary parking, breaking signals, grid locks, the works. One major hazard has been talking on the mobile while driving. While it may be argued by self-proclaimed competent drivers that talking on the mobile has no relation to driving and is not a safety hazard, it is definitely an irritant. 

I have encountered, on the roads, drivers who are so engrossed in their conversation that they forget to signal, arbitrarily slow down and in many cases just stop where they are. By putting on their blinkers, they feel they have been considerate but hello, you want to stop, how about moving out of the way first. 

I saw this sign on a school bus and I hope the next generation takes it seriously.
