Mobile on Drive


I was over phone in an important call while crossing Saidapet signal at approx 2 PM. I could know what you connect between the title and the first line. No, I wasn’t driving the car, it was my driver who was driving the car.

I saw a girl around 23, probably working in some IT sector. She was wearing a grey color dress and was driving a grey color Honda Activa type of two-wheeler in the hot sun without helmets. She was on mobile and was going on the left. Suddenly she felt her bag falling down from her leg arms from two-wheeler. She suddenly started caring for the bag with her one hand and had the mobile over her ears. At that moment, I dropped the call and alerted my driver and my PS to be cautious. By the time she fell down from her two-wheeler almost in the middle of the road. Upto my sight there was none to pick her up from the fallen position too.

I had a little bit of soft corner and thought of picking her up by stopping the car, it was then my PS advised me not to do so for the following reasons.

  • People around will say that the accident was because of us.
  • They will connect you and that girl because of the age.

Yes, it was highly true. I was highly relaxed but even then still the people should be careful about while atleast in driving.
