While social media has become an inevitable part of our lives, it has become a platform for mediocrity too. Nowadays, it has become a trend to pull off silly stunts and antics to gain two-minute fame on social media, one of the prime examples of which is performing dangerous stunts on vehicles. One such stunt is going viral on Instagram, in which a man is seen standing on a motorcycle while riding on a public road, with a pillion behind him.

In a video which is going viral on Instagram, a man is seen riding a Royal Enfield Bullet with a female pillion who is supposedly his wife behind him, who appears to be his wife. As the video progresses, the man starts standing on the motorcycle while riding. While doing this stunt, he and his pillion rider are not seen wearing helmets, putting the lives of himself and the pillion rider at risk. The video concludes with the man standing fully on the Bullet, while the motorcycle is still in motion.
Video has become viral
The video has been attracting a lot of attention from the netizens, which seems to be the sole purpose of the video. In the comments section, many people are seen expressing their views on this video too. While some people are amazed to see such a stunt, many people also trolled the motorcycle rider for performing such a dangerous stunt on a public road. Many people pointed out that while doing such a stunt, the Bullet rider is putting his life at stake, while not caring about his pillion rider and other motorists on the road.
Executing such life-threatening stunts on cars and motorcycles and uploading videos of such stunts on social media has become a new trend, especially among youngsters. Many people do such antics to go viral and become popular on social media. However, one must not forget that such life-threatening stunts are not only dangerous but also illegal to perform on public roads. In many instances, we have seen that the people performing such stunts either land on hospital beds or are arrested and sent to jail for breaking the law and putting the lives of other people at risk. We request all our readers to not follow and encourage the dangerous acts of such people and ride or drive safely on public roads while taking care of all the right safety measures on the road.
Videos are used as evidence
Most metropolitan cities now have a network of CCTV that is closely monitored by a team of police personnel. The cops issue a challan based on the violation by tracking the registration number. However, many online challans are wrong due to faulty number plates. Wrong challans can be challenged through the redressal portal of the traffic police.
In recent years, the government and the authorities have worked to increase the challan amount. The increase in the fines is to reduce the number of violations and to make the roads safer.
