Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan on Tuesday inaugurated the 28th edition of Road Safety week in Mumbai. The legendary Bollywood actor participated in a panel discussion on traffic safety and expressed his views on road safety.
Big B said, “I have installed traffic police’s app, MTP, on my mobile phone. Now, if I come across someone violating traffic rules, I will click their pictures and complain.”
Mumbai Commissioner of Police Datta Padsalgikar, Maharashtra DGP Satish Mathur, Joint Commissioner of Police Milind Bharambe (Traffic Mumbai) and many other senior officers were present on the occasion.
Addressing the public gathering, Mr Bachchan said, “Many motorists race behind the vehicles of celebrities to click a selfie with them. This is very dangerous…don’t do it.”
Talking about the traffic police’s strategies to monitor the citizens traveling on city roads, a senior police officer said, “We will carry out a special drive to create awareness about wearing of helmets by pillion riders and use of seat-belts by people using four wheelers.”
