Video: Helmet-Less Riders Get Off Bike And Walk Along To Avoid Penalty
New Delhi: After the implementation of the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act, 2019, an old video has gone viral on social media after being shared on Twitter by an Indian Police Service (IPS).
Pankaj Nain, an IPS officer, posted the short clip recently that features an “innovative way to avoid traffic challans”.
“Driving without helmet is illegal but walking isn’t,” reads the tagline on the video that shows people walking beside their two-wheelers on a street to avoid being fined for not wearing helmets.
“This is hilarious. Innovative ways to avoid traffic challan. Pls follow traffic rules to avoid such situations,” read the tweet by the Police officials.
