The cops have adopted many such innovative ideas to make people follow traffic rules and take road safety seriously. The cops also became performers earlier this week and participated in street plays winning hearts of not only the locals but also of Netizens online.

Earlier this month, a theatre artist was appointed to play the role of Yamaraja and remind people of wary consequences. The man, Veeresh Muttinamath, was also‏ felicitated on Friday for his contribution and rewarded with Rs 10,000.
