On Tuesday, an adorable video of a dog reinstating the importance of staying safe while driving has surfaced on social media in India: posted by a Twitter user named Kaveri, the 52-second clip showed a man and his best friend – the dog riding on a motorbike, both donning helmets.
The video, that appears to have been shot in India’s southern state of Tamil Nadu already garnered over 3,000 views on Twitter within one hour of Kaveri sharing it.
Netizens reacted to the video in amusement and awe.

Because of over population and traffic constraints, a large chunk of Indians prefers using two-wheelers to reach from one point to another rather than getting stuck in long and tedious traffic snarls.
According to India’s revised Motor Vehicles Bill, riding a two-wheeler without a helmet is punishable with a three-month licence suspension along with a fine of $13 approx. (Rs.1,000).
