Traffic Cop Does Something Incredibly Simple, Is Praised As Man Of Honor, Integrity (VIDEO)

Being a traffic cop is hard. Being a traffic cop in India -- where there are more than a billion people and the roads are jammed nonstop -- is really hard.

Enter traffic police sub-inspector ML Nijalingappa. He was stationed at Bengaluru’s Trinity Circle on Saturday, where he "won hearts in the city and on social media alike for making way for an ambulance even as a convoy of the President of India was to pass through a busy junction," Indian Express reported.

According to an ANI report, the Bengaluru Police later announced a reward for the policeman for making way for an ambulance during the convoy movement of President Pranab Mukherjee, who was in the city for the inauguration of Metro’s Green Line.

Mukherjee’s convoy was headed towards the Raj Bhavan when Nijalingappa is said to have spotted an ambulance trying to make its a way towards a private hospital near HAL. The sub-inspector directed his colleagues to help the ambulance travel through the traffic-heavy road.

Deputy Commissioner of Police, Traffic East Division, Bengaluru City, Abhei Goyal later took to Twitter to praise the officer’s presence of mind.

Other praise quickly followed.

While one person noted that common decency requires such a move, another said that often isn't so easy in India.
