To fight the menace of avoidable casualties at road accidents, the Police in Uttar Pradesh has taken to demonstrating using complex contraption the value of following basic rules while driving, going the extra mile in its efforts to ensure citizens' safety.
The UP police has made a comprehensive demonstration to the people bringing to their attention what is perhaps the most common method of preventing injuries or worse during road accidents - people failing to wear seatbelts while driving. Using a new machine, a policeman demonstrated how not wearing a seatbelt can lead to horrific consequences. The policeman demonstrated how even a slight jerk or a sudden break can throw a person from a seat, given that while the vehicle itself may come to a stop, the human inside it is under no compulsion to do so because that's how momentum works. Watch the demonstration video here:
The video shows a policeman seated besides a dummy without a seatbelt. The seats move ahead and comes to a jarring stop, with the dummy thrown off the seat, while the cop is still safely secured. Hence, the demonstration proves to be a helpful tool in making motorists understand. Meanwhile, Kanpur Police too carried out a demonstration, but with a longer video.
The Kanpur Police's version of the video shows people giving usual reasons where they ignore wearing seatbelts. The video later goes on to show two dummies on a similar machine. One dummy is placed without a seatbelt, while other has worn a seatbelt. As soon as the chair moves downwards and stops, the dummy without the seatbelt is thrown off with a strong force. The message is out loud and clear and people are urged to wear seatbelts. Watch the full video here:
Police forces in almost every other city has also repeatedly urged people to follow the rules and wear seatbelts and helmets. Among other things which the police prevent people from engaging in are alcohol and drugs, in order to prevent drivers taking to the streets in an intoxicated state. Here are few other examples:
Earlier in June, a traffic policeman in Delhi made headlines for his unique way to spread safety awareness among the motorists. The cop, Sandeep Shahi, had taken to rapping on the streets and giving out his messages loud and clear. Shahi uses the similar rhyme verse like that of Ranveer Singh's major hit 'Apna Time Aayega' from the movie 'Gully Boy'.
