Mumbai Police shares quirky video to stop reckless honking
The video shows surprised reactions of motorists.
Mumbai Police's latest video on Twitter is leaving netizens in splits as it hilariously asks motorists to not horn while waiting at the signal.
Often known for their quirky responses to tweets and interesting videos reminding motorists to adhere to traffic rules, Mumbai police posted yet another tongue-in-cheek video for the reckless honkers. The almost 2-minute video shows Mumbai motorists surprised as the more they blow the horn, the longer the wait at the signal.
They captioned the video: 'Horn not okay, please! Find out how the @MumbaiPolice hit the mute button on #Mumbai's reckless honkers. #HonkResponsibly. The video also shows the new tactic used by Mumbai police to check the nuisance wherein they place "the punishing signal" - a decibel meter box.
The cops connected these decibel meters to traffic signals at a few selected places in the city to measure honking. If the decibel levels crossed 85db mark, the signal would reset and stay red longer, meaning the motorists would also have to wait longer at the signal.
The video shows surprised reactions of motorists as they wait for the red light to go green due to the incessant honking.
The video has amassed over 7,000 likes and over 3,000 retweets just in few hours of being posted.
