Watch: Delhi traffic cop persuades people to follow traffic safety rules by singing rap songs

His rap has been getting an overwhelming response by people on various social media platforms like Twitter.

Sandeep Shahi, a head constable in Delhi traffic police, has adopted a unique and swanky way to spread road safety awareness in the national capital. He has boned up the art of rapping and has been using the song “Apna Time Aayega“, from Ranveer Singh’s movie Gully Boy, with his own set of lyrics to promote road safety.

His rap song, “Humse na ho payega, kaun bola? Sadak ki, suraksha ki, jeevan ki raksha ki, helmet ki, seatbelt ki niyam agar apnayega, jeevan khushaal ban jaayega. Baat meri maan, suraksha ko jaan”. “Tera time aayega. Jai Hind, Jai Bharat,” has been getting an overwhelming response by people on various social media platforms like Twitter.

“I came to know about the viral video of my rap song. People are very casual about road safety and are reluctant to follow traffic rules. So, I felt it was my responsibility to make them aware,” Shahi said while speaking to ANI.

Shahi, who lost his wife, Pink Rani, in an accident, appeals to citizens to wear helmets and seat belts while travelling and to follow the traffic rules. “I was deeply hurt when my wife suffered injuries in the road accident. Also, I see many young people taking traffic rules very lightly. So, I decided to write this rap, it was the best way to connect with the youth,” he added.

Shahi has also discovered other innovative ways to persuade motorists to abide by the traffic rules. Sometimes, he uses a mirror to make them feel guilty, while sometimes Shahi uses placards with messages such as “Hamesha ISI mark waala helmet pehnein” (one should always wear helmets that have an ISI mark on them) and “Mastishk Suraksha kawach” (helmet is the safety equipment for your head).

The cop also buys helmets using his own money and gifts it to others. So far, he has distributed around 700 helmets.
