Viral Video: Bengaluru Cab Driver's Lunch Break Illustrates City's Traffic Frustrations

Notorious traffic woes of Bengaluru have resurfaced, leaving commuters stranded for hours and flooding social media with videos and photos of the chaos. A particularly viral video captures a cab driver eating from his lunch box while stuck in traffic, highlighting the severity of the situation.

The video, shared by the community X handle “Citizens Movement,” showcases the traffic congestion on Bengaluru’s Outer Ring Road (ORR) on Wednesday. The accompanying post reads, “The state of traffic jams today in Bengaluru. The cab driver was having his lunch on the way! This will be conveniently ignored by @siddaramaiah @DKShivakumar government. Because the problem of #Bengaluru doesn’t affect their power.”

The ORR traffic jam left several commuters stranded for long hours, causing delays and frustration. One user commented, “Decongesting is the only option for Bangalore. There must be a full stop on multi-housing apartments and any further new tech parks in Bangalore. All new ventures must be directed to other neglected towns and cities of Karnataka so that migration to Bangalore is discouraged.”

Another user shared their daily struggle, stating, “I am commuting daily from HAL road to Whitefield. See the state of the road from Yemlur junction till Marthahalli bridge. Your back will break. So patched road. It’s a 20 min ride and we reach Whitefield in 45 min or 1 hr. Any government at the helm is not bothered to correct the traffic.”

The metro trains are also overcrowded during peak hours, as many commuters rely on public transport to travel to work. Employees working in East Bengaluru’s IT parks have a list of civic complaints and are demanding the government to fix the roads. The longstanding traffic problem in Bengaluru’s ORR has become a nightmare for daily commuters, with no immediate solution in sight.

As the traffic situation continues to worsen, the demand for improved infrastructure and better traffic management grows louder. Commuters are urging the government to take immediate action to alleviate the gridlock and improve the quality of life in Bengaluru.
