Is it stupidity to obey the law?

This morning I was about to cross the street corner that was next to our office. It was already about 3 minutes before my punch-in time. I was not usually this late, but the jeepney I rode in had a minor accident.

I was on the left side of the intersection and the traffic was on a left turn. Therefore the pedestrian light was red. People just the same were crossing while dodging vehicles on a left turn. I froze on my track waiting for the go signal when an officemate whizzed by.

It was 8:00 o'clock flat as I slid my electronic ID card on the attendance recorder. And I was panting for the sudden dash to the office.

Was I just stupid for obeying the traffic law?
