After ‘Yamraj’, Bengaluru police has now turned to Lord Ganesha to spread road safety awareness in the capital city.

A man dressed as ‘Lord Ganesha’ participated in a road safety drive in Bengaluru on Monday.

Earlier this month, Bengaluru police created road safety awareness in the city with a man dressed as ‘Yamraj’ asking people to follow traffic rules and use helmets.

Theatre artist was dressed up as the Hindu god of death, Yamraj, depicting the fatal outcome of contempt of traffic rules and regulations.

The motive was to apprehend motorcyclists for not wearing helmets and car users for not wearing seatbelts. Yamraj proclaimed that “A small mistake can be deathly. Obey traffic rules and protect your life.”

This comes as part of a unique awareness drive conducted by Bengaluru traffic police, in collaboration with theatre artists, to raise awareness of traffic rules.
