Slowing Down The Speeding Bullet

The UP police had no choice but to call for help from the superhero community.  The cops have tweeted a series of pictures that depict Superman obeying traffic signals as he goes after criminals. Chacha Chaudhary and Saboo make use of a zebra crossing in another tweet, which comes with a message saying that Saboo is from Jupiter but he understands the importance of the zebra crossing.  This is part of a larger campaign to create awareness about road safety.  “We are using the hashtag—#trafficmonth #uppolice—in every post about traffic awareness across all UP Twitter handles. We are trying to strike an emotional chord with the people. For example, the message, ‘If you want to stay married, divorce speed,’ is aimed at making people sensitive about how precious their life is to their loved ones,” says ASP Rahul Srivastava, the DGP’s PRO.
