No toll

I find it slightly obnoxious when there are highway signs with so much information on them that it's impossible to read them in the less-than-a-minute-before-you-pass-them time frame.
This one just might win the prize.
It's the complete list of who is exempt from the national highway toll.

There's a reason for why it pays to be a V.I.P.
Highway tolls.

I don't know what to think of that. Especially as it's posted, to point out to all the rest of us that we are not cabinet ministers, chief justices, foreign dignitaries, awardees of Param Vir Chakra, or on-duty fire fighters.

Something about this lacks common sense. Or humility.

Perhaps it's a way of limiting abuse of the system. As in: "If you're not on the list, you're not getting by for free."
It seems that anyone with a "government vehicle" wants to get through, and some of those government convoys can be long.

Signs along the road: interesting food for thought.
