The Bengaluru police on Sunday came up with a witty tweet to communicate an important message about road safety.
“What do you think it’s trying to say? On a scale of 1-10 for how ignorant you’re when you don’t care for your life, you’re an ELEVEN,” said the tweet with a GIF which appears to have been inspired by a scene from the hit TV show Stranger Things.
