Bangalore has experienced rapid urban growth and population influx over the years, which has led to an increase in the number of vehicles on the road.
The city’s infrastructure and transportation systems have struggled to keep up with this growth. Therefore, Bangalore traffic is always a topic of discussion, and a video of it has gone viral now. Have a look.

A video of a bus driver eating his entire lunch sitting in the front seat has gone viral, showing the severity of traffic congestion in Bangalore. The video, posted on Instagram by Sai Chand Bayyavarapu, shows the bus driver consuming a plate of food while stuck in traffic at the city’s Silk Board Junction.
The video has received more than 1.4 million views and has sparked a debate about the city’s traffic problems. Many people have raised concerns about the driver, who is clearly trying to do his job in such heavy traffic. Others have criticized the administration for failing to handle the city’s traffic problems.
According to text within the video, the incident was filmed in the Silk Board Junction traffic jam. “Peak time in Bangalore traffic,” the caption read.
The video saddened netizens. “It’s sad… The driver doesn’t even have time to sit down and eat quietly because of the traffic,” a man commented on the video.
Another wrote: “The drivers’ fight is really very hard, I see my father sacrificing so many things, but I’m proud to be the daughter of the BMTC driver ❤️, I ask everyone to respect them.”
“Having a takeaway is still nice… But what about answering the calls of the wild… the struggle of drivers and bus drivers is real… Big respect to all those people” , wrote another.
One man also suggested: “Someone make these IT companies understand…they’re hell-bent on people working from the office…pathetic traffic, increased pollution, rising temperatures…everything due to work from office… Another 1-2 weeks, schools and colleges will add their share of traffic… then the rain starts… we will hear news of accidents and deaths daily due to potholes on our roads (due to the rain)”.
Bangalore’s traffic is a major problem for the city.
The video serves as a stark reminder of the problems Bangalore faces as it grows. The metropolis has a population of around 20 million people and is projected to reach 25 million by 2031. The city’s infrastructure, especially its roads and public transportation system, has suffered as a result of its rapid growth.
The city’s traffic problems are a major source of frustration for both residents and businesses. They are a waste of time and money, as well as contributing to air pollution. The government has taken some steps to address the problem, but much remains to be done.
