We have seen many people either breaking or not following traffic rules. Well, there is another side to this too. Now, there is a video on youtube posted by Mundodi Vlogs where it can be seen that an aged bicycle rider has installed 2 ORVMS in his bicycle with other safety equipment too. This incident has been recorded in Vital, Bantwal Taluk which is a small town in Karnataka. In the video, it can be noticed that the bicycle is equipped with taillights, 2 rear view mirrors just like those fitted in scooters and bikes, and a helmet. He shared this video to spread awareness among people who do not follow traffic rules. People in India are unaware of safety rules, most of them are people who don’t follow the rules and are old-age people who are old license holders.
