Mumbai: Motorists in the city often find solutions to pass through traffic as quickly as possible however they may be in violation of the traffic rules. A video of one such incident has come to the fore.
On Twitter, a person with username 'Aapli Mumbai' shared a video on Tuesday, February 21, which shows motorists riding their two-wheeler on a footpath amid traffic.
"This is not seen by the traffic department, even though the traffic police is standing on the side, they are not taking any action. Who gave the bikers the right to use the footpath," the miffed user wrote sharing the video.
In the video which is now going viral, it can be seen that motorists have queued behind other as one man tries to make his scooty climb up on the footpath as other motorist drives ahead of him on the path meant for pedestrians.
