While the implementation of the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act, 2019 has triggered many reactions on social media, a hilarious video showing how people can evade the challans has gone viral on the Internet. As per new traffic rules, that came into effect from September 1, hefty fines will be charged on traffic violations such as drunken driving, driving without helmet, driving without seat belts, overloading and underage driving.
Captioned, “Driving without a helmet is illegal but walking isn’t,” the video shows exactly that. The 30-second clip features people without helmets walking alongside their two-wheelers in an attempt to evade being fined. While the video is old, it has gone viral after it was tweeted by IPS Pankaj Nain. “This is hilarious. Innovative ways to avoid traffic challans. Please follow traffic rules to avoid such situations,” he tweeted along with the trending hashtag ‘New Traffic Rules’.
This is hilarious.
