Amidst the hullabaloo over Amended Motor Vehicles Act with people going bizarre lengths to avoid challans, this law-abiding, helmet-wearing dog has piqued people’s interest.

An adorable picture of a dog sitting on a scooter behind his owner, dutifully wearing a helmet in Delhi has gone viral. The picture has been doing rounds on social media for quite sometime now. It first appeared on the internet in September — soon after the implementation of the Amended Motor Vehicles Act — that had enhanced the penalties for driving errors across the nation. 

A positive change

Many a joke has been cracked and memes had been created in reaction to the new law, but positive yet hilarious changes, just like this one have also been witnessed. However, due to massive hikes in traffic fines, automobile drivers in the capital, went on a strike soon after the law was implemented.
