Bengaluru traffic Police appoints ‘Yamaraja’ to caution violators

Recommended Posts

Here's something slightly off-beat :P

If you would be driving across the town hall area in Bengaluru, beware to break the traffic rules as the chances of you coming across ‘Yamaraja’ (God of Death) are very apparent. Well, that’s a new dramatic idea Bengaluru traffic police have pulled out to warn traffic rule violators.

The Halasuru Gate traffic Police hired Veeresh- a theatre artist who was dressed in the Yamaraja attire to warn motorists who were breaking traffic rules and further went on threatening them of a home visit if they continued with the flawed practice. On a serious note, the intent is to send across the message of the dangers of not wearing a helmet, rash driving and other violations.

The campaign is aimed towards both pedestrians and the motorists to convey the importance of the traffic rules and the Police claims that the program has helped in minimising accidents. For an insight, 2336 accidents were reported in Bengaluru till June this year out of which 330 were fatal. Last year, 5064 accidents were reported of which 609 were fatal.
