Conversation : With a Traffic Policeman

Policeman: Hey! Stop your car.


Roma: (Stopping her car, surprisingly). What is the matter?


Policeman: You have violated the traffic rule.


Roma: What are you saying? I haven’t committed any offence.


Policeman: Don’t tell a lie. You should have stopped your car at the red light but you skipped it. Such negligence may cause an accident.

 

Roma: (Realizing her mistake) Oh! I am extremely sorry. In fact the crossing was free and I was in a hurry, thus I failed to notice the red light.


Policeman: But you are expected to drive carefully and cautiously on the road.


Roma: Would you please pardon me this time?


Policeman: How can we allow people like you to create chaos on the roads? Traffic police is for your safety. I am making your challan. Take out your driving license.


Roma: (Showing her driving licence) It is my driving license. Please try to understand me. I didn’t commit the mistake intentionally. I assure I will be more careful in future.


Policeman: Please don’t try to argue, and give me Rs.100/-. It is the minimum penalty.


Roma: (Seriously) Try to realize my helplessness. I have only 100 rupees in my purse, I may need it. My friend is seriously ill. I am going to her house to enquire about her health.


Policeman: Okay, okay….. you are being pardoned this time. Hereafter follow traffic rules carefully.


Roma: (Having a sigh of relief) Thank you.
