Delhi Police outshines everyone else when it comes to taking an unconventional approach to warn people against violating rules and regulations or spreading awareness on any social issue. Over the past few years, the department has been making headlines for using different viral videos and reels as an opportunity to encourage responsible behaviour among citizens. Now, the official Twitter handle of Delhi Police has once again issued a warning to those who post reels while performing stunts on motorcycles. The caption of the video was humorous, but it earnestly urged people to avoid indulging in such activities just to gain attention and views on social media.
Delhi Police issues warning against traffic rules violation
The video posted by Delhi Police shows a man riding a bike with two women pillion riders. The three of them attempted to recreate an iconic scene from the song, Jaane Nahi Denge Tujhe, from the film 3 Idiots starring Aamir Khan. “AAL IZZ NOT WELL if you drive or ride dangerously for the sake of reels!” read the caption of the video.

However, the video was used by the Delhi Police to highlight that none of the three wore helmets in the video and that it could lead to the issue of challan to the rider. It ended with a text that reads, “Don’t be an idiot on the roads, Drive responsibly.”

“Why do you get to know of such offences only through reels. You can witness many such cases everyday, if the focus is set on the road not reels. And let’s not even talk about the wrong side. Try to be outside the Supreme Court complex? Wrong side driving is a new normal there,” wrote another user.
