'Bengaluru is the 'most traffic congested city' in the world: Report. Bengalureans driving during peak hours, spend an extra 243 hours, i.e., 10 days, three hours in traffic each year' - Economictimes.com

However, for those living and working in the city - we do not need stats to convince us. Our lives bear witness to it. Work-life balance is non-existent when we spend so much time getting to and fro from work and still expected to clock in 9 hours.

We in Bengaluru deserve this more than anyone else. If our roads can't be fixed, the government at least owes this to protect its working class (for the sake of our mental and physical health). 

Let's band together and get this implemented to be a positive example to other cities in India. Please share this petition in all your circles and let's get this conversation started and noticed
