In yet another innovative campaign for road safety, Bengaluru traffic police took help from the God to convey an important message. Well, not an divine intervention. After their previously successful venture involving ‘Yamraja’, the traffic police this time took help from Lord Ganesh to make citizen realise the importance of a helmet.
Dressed as the Hindu God, one man distributed helmets among riders, warning them how fatal it can be without a guard for their head. With roses in hand, the man dressed as Ganesh handed over helmets to riders travelling in the area under the Rajajnagar Traffic control.
Invoking the lord, they reminded how near death can be if rules are not obeyed.
