This is not the first time, we have come across an incident like this. There have been reports where people have been spotted doing stunts on public roads for the sake of publicity and reach on social media. Doing any sort of stunt on a public road is illegal and it can even land you in jail. In this case, the influencer had stopped the car on a busy elevated highway and danced in front of it. People normally drive cars fast on such highways and from the video, it is quite clear that there was no spot on the road to actually park the car.
She stopped the car in the extreme left lane. It is quite dangerous as it could have easily lead to an accident. The video does show a curve on the highway behind the car. The vehicle coming from behind can lose control or even crash into the Maruti Swift which was used to record video by the influencer. In order to avoid such incidents, it is always recommended to take prior permission from the concerned authorities or else look for a closed road to avoid any incidents. Thankfully no such incidents happened in this case however, it did create inconvenience to other road users and that is probably the reason why cops took action against her.
