It seems like “breaking” traffic rules has become a way of life for some people in India. From driving in wrong lanes to ignoring signal lights or riding without helmets — people resort to all sorts of tricks to avoid the traffic rules. Not only has it become “irrelevant”, for many it has, sadly, turned into “a matter of pride” to ignore traffic rules and “die like real men” do.
Can’t believe it? The Hyderabad Traffic Police came across one such man who refused to wear a helmet because it didn’t seem to be manly enough. Apparently, Reddy’s bike mudguard had a caption: “No helmet, I die like real men.” Taking a dig at him on social media, the traffic police decided to teach him a lesson with a sarcastic tweet. Hyderabad Traffic Police tweeted, “We r extremely Sorry Mr Krishna Reddy Sir. We won’t let U die. We will see that U “LIVE LIKE REAL MEN”. Please wear helmet & ride”.

Real men WEAR Helmet!

Clearly this guy is so dumb that he is wearing his stupidity as crown. No sympathy for these kind. They are danger to society.

That’s not all. There have been many instances when the Twitter handles of the police created quite a frenzy with their pop culture references while giving social messages. Remember the recent Avengers: Infinity War fiasco by Mumbai Police?
