Bengaluru Traffic Sign Misinterpreted As ‘Follow Someone Home’. Netizens: “Does It Promote Stalking?”

There’s a traffic sign near Bengaluru’s Cubbon Park that has garnered quite a few laughs on social media. Misinterpreted as “Follow Someone Home” due to the font size of certain words, Netizens wonder if it promotes stalking. Well, Bengalureans, read on to know what’s this signboard all about.

Traffic Sign Near Cubbon Park In Bengaluru, Misread By Commuters As “Follow Someone Home”

An X user, Sumukh Rao shared a picture of a traffic signboard near Cubbon Park in Bengaluru. The traffic signboard seems to stand apart from other conventional road safety advice. At first glance, it reads, “Follow Someone Home”. However, a closer look at it unravels the other words which are printed in smaller font size. So, the signboard actually reads, “Follow Traffic Rules. Someone Is Waiting At Home For You”. It ends with a message urging commuters to “Ober Traffic Rules”.

In addition to the picture shared, the X user asked in his caption who thought it was a good sign to put up. He adds that it reads so bad when driving past it as one can’t see the text printed in smaller font. This initiative by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) generated chuckles on social media. While it was formulated with a deep message in mind with the intention to coax introspection, the vast difference in font size and the wording has left to its widespread misinterpretation.

Netizens Say It’s Perfect “Memeworthy Material”

Well, Netizens on X blew up the comments section with their hilarious takes on the Bengaluru traffic sign. With 12,000 views and many reactions, this signboard proved to be good “memeworthy material”. @ShivamVahia says, “Delhi guy: yeh toh humara roz ka hai”. @siestatweets writes that both authorities and scriptwriters are completely out of syncing terms of functionality and requirements.

@RaoSumukh chimes in that this signboard was put up to entertain bored drivers. Many other Netizens joked about this traffic sign promoting stalking. @mahbrahm states in the city with the most traffic congestion, if anyone really has the time to read it. We say, of course, they do! @sweetsudha1 also states that she will read it as “Follow Someone Home” when she drives past it. And may certainly get in trouble for it.

Meanwhile, Bengalureans, have you caught wind of this traffic signboard near Cubbon Park?
