Well, most of us do not have any criminal intent, yet once in a while we get involved in wrongdoings intentionally or unintentionally. Here I would like to narrate an incident when I was caught for committing a crime and was penalized for the same. I vividly remember I was almost fifteen years old. Most teenagers of my age are curious to ride motor bikes. I requested my father many times to teach me how to ride a bike but he always refused to do so and warned me not to try until you turn 18 as it is illegal to ride a vehicle for underaged ones. I always used to keep on thinking and dreaming riding a bike at full speed. One day, I was home alone. I took it as an opportunity and invited one of my friends at home and out of curiosity we took the bike on the main road. I was driving it comfortably with my friend sitting behind and all of a sudden, a traffic police officer stopped us at an intersection for not wearing helmet and when he enquired about the driving licence we got numb. The officer said, it is a crime to drive without a licence and since we were underaged too he arrested us. My father arrived at the police station as soon as he got the news and he pleaded the officer to release us. We promised the officer that it will not happen again, but my father had to pay 5000rs fine which was huge. At this point my father was very angry for not obeying him but I apologised my father and felt sorry whole-heartedly and said I have learnt the lesson and I will not get involved in any ill-activity again.
