How to feel like an idiot

There is a traffic signal for pedestrians to cross in Chandigarh  and it works!

However, I was surprised that I stopped when the signal was red but the pedestrians were not crossing. It soon became clear why. The cars continued to move at their normal speed - ignoring the red light. Soon, there was a police car which also cruised through the light totally oblivious to the pedestrians waiting on the side walk.

I waited till the light turned green even though I was the only one who had stopped and felt a bit like an idiot. To make matters worse, when the light turned green, a pedestrian started to cross the road - ignoring me and my car :(  I kept my cool and did not hit him.
