In the tapestry of Peak Bengaluru moments, a recent anecdote shared by a man on X adds another colorful thread, recounting a quirky incident from 2012.

Aashish Bansal reminisced about being fined Rs 500 by traffic cops for not carrying the pollution control certificate in their car, along with two friends visiting from Australia. What ensued was a serendipitous encounter that transcended the mundane.

Reflecting on the bygone era when Bengaluru’s nightlife wasn’t dominated by microbreweries and traffic jams post-10 PM weren’t the norm, Bansal shared how the incident unfolded at the 13th Floor.

He recounted how the seemingly routine penalty transformed into an engaging conversation with a traffic marshal who happened to run an advertising agency. The congenial exchange, facilitated by the late hour and sparse traffic, delved into the nuances of the advertising industry, a realm Bansal had recently entered.

Despite the initial hiccup of the traffic fine, Bansal and his friends found themselves exchanging business cards with the traffic marshal, turning an inconvenience into an unexpected networking opportunity.

Responding to queries from intrigued netizens, Bansal confirmed that they indeed paid the fine and received a receipt, concluding the peculiar yet memorable encounter.
