Sometimes the traffic is so bad that it makes people resort to think up of creative ways to entertain themselves.

Who hasn’t heard of Mumbai’s traffic? No wonder Mumbaikars prefer Mumbai local over driving. Not that the local’s any less crowded. However, sometimes the traffic is so bad that it makes people resort to think up of creative ways to entertain themselves (or even keep their cool).

A video — ‘When people get bored of traffic jams in Mumbai’ — has surfaced on social media, and has taken off like wild fire. No surprises that the video’s entertainment quotient would rival a drunken Johnny Lever monologue. Within a day of being uploaded on Facebook, the video has garnered over 3 million views, 100,000 likes, and 50,000 shares.

In it, a man gets out of his car and just starts dancing. Soon, he is joined by fellow travellers on the road and one can see over 10 people tapping their feet to a Bollywood number.

But one must applaud the courage Mumbaikars have to pull an act like this. This happens only in Mumbai!

    This is what they do. ..cause public traffic! !! Why make the car traffic move even slower by dancing and gathering more crowd? Instead go on top of your car to dance and sing your heart out.

      While I am fighting issue on our Mumbai traffic system. I saw by my own eyes how much suffering traffic cops go through in Mumbai while in abroad we have separate department for by law enforcement which does tagging, towing of vehicles who obstruct. They also look after abandoned vehicles. In Mumbai Traffic cops go through all jobs and it is too much for their size and number of vehicles we have. I also try to put this point with CP Bharambe besides car pulling we create a By law enforcement it will make big change I told him but he had no interest in listening as he was just waiting for me to leave while I was talking I was interrupted several times with his personal istant for no reason and I was told to leave in short I was kicked out. CP forgot I was foreigner who traveled from so far because I care for Mumbai and I had no selfish motto but rather than appreciating my effort he looked at me as some silly civilian who just came to his office to bug him and same time he did not want to accept his challenge as he dose not care much for poor traffic cop who suffers on streets of Mumbai and I realized that. But time will change for Mumbai soon with new system will fall in place one day. As our environment is fully destro in Mumbai with no natural mangrove but CP Bharambe said to me environment is different issue and not of his concern while mind you pollution and environment goes hand to hand and traffic dose create pollution we all agree. Jai Hind.
