Time and again, Mumbai Police has doled out safety tips and posted socially relevant messages for Twitter users, but with a quirky twist. Doused in hilarious pop culture-inspired jokes and memes, their tweets have managed to create quite a stir on social media. Right from playing with Daisy Shah’s viral Race 3 dialogue to posting memes of popular series and superheroes, Mumbai Police has done it all to make people aware about traffic rules.
Recently, the Twitter handle posted another social message urging the citizens of Mumbai to avoid road rash on the streets as life doesn’t give a second chance. “Road rage in reality may lead to damages no amount of money can pay for, at any level in life #RoadSafety,” the tweet read. If you are a ’90s kid, you might be aware of the impact that this popular game had on people. Wasn’t it clever of the Mumbai Police to take a cue from the game?
No sooner did people see the name of the the video game, it brought back many memories and the safety message hit the right note on the micro-blogging site. Check out their tweet here.
