After seeing cops trouble in imparting awareness among people to wear helmet while driving, I recollect one proverb, “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink”.
Even a 1st class student knows that driving without helmet is dangerous but still some people won’t just do it. I don’t know what term can be used for such idiotic people. They risk their life, risk their family and blame government for their self mistakes.
They may not have desire to live but government has responsibility to take care of people. So, it has been promoting awareness among people.
But it seems all that went waste.
And this picture is the proof of it.
Circle Inspector B Shubh Kumar of Anantapur’s Madakasira Circle, who was going to work saw the man K Hanumantharayudu, on a bike with his two sons sitting on the fuel tank, his wife behind him and a relative on edge of the seat.
The incident happened when “I had just finished an one-and-half hour programme on road safety awareness in which that man was also present. My mind went blank when I saw the five of them riding so dangerously and all I could do was fold my hands in total resignation, helplessness and frustration. I asked him to think of the safety of his family as he did not have minimum sense of responsibility towards them. As the two kids were sitting on the fuel tank, he had little room to manouevre because their legs were stuck to the handlebar. Accidents happen like that only. When I confronted him, he just smiled back at me and murmured something,’’ Shubh Kumar said.
It seems this guy is a repeat traffic offender
However, the policeman said the person was a repeat offender and he had warned him many times before. “He also did not wear a helmet and none of his family members too had one. This also puts others on the road at risk. He was totally unconcerned about the danger,” said a fuming Kumar, who along with five sub-inspectors have been conducting road safety programmes in the Madakasira area.
Yes, of course some people just don’t care.
“This is a remote area and traffic awareness among people is very low. We have been conducting such programmes for the past four months by showing videos of road safety, importance of wearing helmets, perils of overloading, how accidents happen etc. We also show interviews of family members who have lost their loved ones in accidents and how their lives have changed. But some people just don’t care. It is frustrating sometimes,” he said.
Abhishek Goyal, Deputy Commissioner of Police -Traffic East, Bengaluru, shared a picture of a family of five riding on one bike – all of them without helmets. Standing in front of them hands folded and head bowed is a police officer. “What else can he do ? We always have a choice .. chose the safe one ! #BeSafe” he hilariously captions the picture.
What else can he do 😅?

When people are not listening to polite words then collect fine from them. They will definitely wear helmet as some people love money more than their lives. Bangalore police too tried a lot to promote awareness with creative postures. Read here.
Isn’t it? Do you have any other good solution for this problem as people lost their discipline? Share us in the comments.
