The bustling city of Bengaluru, often hailed as India’s Silicon Valley, showcases the innovative ways in which professionals navigate work-life balance, albeit sometimes at the expense of road safety.

A viral video shared by Peak Bengaluru, depicting a man riding a scooter with a laptop open on his lap while attending a video call, has sparked both laughter and concern among netizens. While some found humor in the situation, others raised valid concerns about road safety and the intense work pressure faced by professionals, particularly in the IT sector.

Comments on the video ranged from jest about the individual’s potential workload to genuine worries about the risks involved. One user quipped about the likelihood of the man completing a full work shift amidst Bengaluru’s notorious traffic, while another expressed concern over the precarious balancing act between work obligations and personal safety.

This incident is not an isolated one. Last year, a photo of a woman working on her laptop during a Rapido ride amid heavy traffic also made waves on social media, highlighting the lengths to which individuals go to meet professional demands.

Similarly, a recent viral video captured the moment a man’s laptop slipped out of his vehicle window while he was engrossed in a Bollywood song, underscoring the potential consequences of multitasking while driving.

While these incidents may evoke amusement or shock, they also shed light on the pressures faced by professionals in Bengaluru’s fast-paced work environment and the need for greater awareness of road safety amidst the city’s bustling streets.
