This Is How Mumbai Police Gets On To The Pokémon Go Bandwagon To Deliver a Strong Relevant Message (2)

Understanding the city’s latest obsession, Mumbai Police, being the cool cats that they are, found a very creative way to warn people about the dangers of Pokemon Go. For quite some time now, Mumbai Police has been running hashtag campaigns that would weed out perpetrators and law breakers, or even as warnings. Their Twitter handle has put out some really funny tweets on road safety over the last few months.


The Mumbai Police on Sunday posted a GIF in a tweet, warning people to not get distracted while playing the game. As part of road safety campaign, they released a series of on-point tweets talking about it and officials have said that players should choose safer areas away from traffic.


And as expected, Twitter reactions ranges from amusement to support.



Well, it’s true you can’t win them all, but at least the message had a widespread reach. Good job, Mumbai Police!
