Red Light Management

* title courtesy AJ's firm's new project

Dear youngster-on-the-pulsar-near-portuguese-church-at-10:45, 4/10/2008.

Sometimes there are many things in life that are more important than waiting at the red light. Dude that light wasn’t put there so that some men and women can solicit business under it at night. It has a purpose and that is to save your life and the lives of everyone around. Today morning u couldn’t wait for 3 minutes to get a green signal. Had my cab not been 5 seconds late, any/all of us could have been injured/dead or worse crippled for life. I know u r smart enough to know that my cab was approaching late, but sometimes things don’t go as planned. One of your drunk friends has already run into a friend of mine last week and he is already stitched up and hence I am pissed off with ur kind especially today. Hope u will pay some heed to this…

[After learning what happened to Alexis Leon a.k.a Alex Chettan, red-light-jumpers, as I call them, make me want to chain them up to a red light without food or water]

hmm.. have jumped my share and did the same stuff, so I have no more right to judge anybody. But if I were to judge myself, yes chaining myself on to a red light with no food or water would come damn close!

This was my day of shame!

I know what it means.. I was also knocked down by a rash cab driver once and I stopped taking my vehicle after that :(

I will leave two quotes for what I want to say:
1. Good judgment comes from experience, and often experience comes from bad judgment.
2. There is no man so good, who, were he to submit all his thoughts and actions to the laws, would not deserve hanging 10 times in his life.
Cheers,

I'm sorry about your friend, I hope he gets better soon. Paying some heed to rules would make this world a better place. Unfortunately, not everyone seems to subscribe to that belief! I agree with you - red light jumping is not one bit cool!
