We've all been advised against drunk driving or maybe not using phones while driving. But what is unusual is a warning sign from police to not use mobile phones while drinking.
Because that's what happened somewhere in Jammu & Kashmir.
A Reddit user posted a picture of this signboard.
The post soon started trending on Reddit and was also shared by former J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Twitter.
You’ve had the advice to not drink & drive & the advice to not use your mobile phone while driving. Here’s a new piece of advice. pic.twitter.com/DqajhOWbTj— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) June 20, 2019
And the 'warning' resonated with many people on Twitter.
Drunk tweets and texts are a thing. That is sound advice.— Kiran Manral (@KiranManral) June 20, 2019
They dont want people to text their ex while they are drunk .— Sardar Nasir Ali khan (@RJNASIROFFICIAL) June 20, 2019
This advice is extremely relevant. Drunk-texting is worse than an accident 🤣🤣— Himanjali Gautam (@sweetnyasa) June 20, 2019
Okay. But 99% do use phones after drinking. Impossible to stop them afterwards 😂— Manak Gupta (@manakgupta) June 20, 2019
It is more a relationship advice than traffic— Nayak (@KhaleeqNaik) June 20, 2019
Mobile पर बात करते रहे तो— सोमेश🇮🇳 (@mrsomeshsaxena) June 20, 2019
दूसरा ज़्यादा पी जाएगा ।
That's a really good advice if you ask me. You don't want to make your fellow drinkers feel ignored. Mobile phones kill good conversations.— Sanjay Gautam (@Sanjayg551) June 20, 2019
Surely they were drunk while printing that sign board— xubayr meer (@Xuva7) June 20, 2019
also, don't drink and paint signboards!— vdravid1 (@vdravid1) June 20, 2019
Possibly bcoz the previous ones didn't work so amalgamate those two :)?— Nadeem Nusrath (@NadeemNusrath1) June 20, 2019
Yeah drunk calls & texts are as harmful as drinking & driving— suspended pandurang escobar (@bhavessshhh) June 20, 2019
modern problems require modern solutions. kudos to the traffic police team.— Nishant Dehury (@nishantdehury5) June 20, 2019
Happens when those supposed to stop drunken driving are high on spirits!— SanJee1 (@SanJeeOne) June 20, 2019
When was the last time you drank and texted someone?
