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.
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.
Traffic challans have been hiked significantly under the Motor Vehicles Act. Following its implementation, traffic violations in the national capital have decreased sharply by 66% in the month of September as compared to the statistics from last year.
Intrigued Twitteratti could not get enough of this adorable, disciplined pillion rider.
The picture has also inspired a lot of jokes, with some calling it "Delhi traffic police ka khauf" (fear of traffic police in Delhi).
It's love for the companion and family which is driving towards safety and rules.— Kunal (@kunalone) September 6, 2019
Delhi walon ke pass paise aur contacts ki kami nahi hai.

This isn't the first time that dogs enjoying scooter rides have brightened up the internet. In 2017, a video from Delhi, featuring three dogs on a scooter with their owner, had gone viral online.
