It's International Literacy Day today. First declared by UNESCO in October 1966, the day aims to highlight the importance of literacy to all individuals and communities.

But what purpose does literacy serve if it does not make us a more law-abiding citizen? How literate are we if we pompously flaunt our ignorance and break rules? Pointing out the same hypocrisy is Mumbai Police.

The post talks about no drink and drive, no phones, and to drive responsibly. Yes, the usual rules that we should be following, but with a twist.


The post ends with, "If you can read all of this, why not flaunt your traffic literacy on the roads?" And needless to say, everyone was on board with the message.



However, some users were quick to point out the traffic problems in their areas and others said that there needs to be a ground implementation of such traffic rules.
