Right after the mirror, he pulled up placards with thought-provoking messages.

Later, another cop is seen handing them a flyer.

Messages

First message: 'Kyuki Aaina Jhooth Nahi Bolta'

The first placard read, "Kyuki Aaina Jhooth Nahi Bolta (The mirror doesn't lie)."

This was followed by, "Meri Helmet Meri Suraksha. Aur Aapki? (My helmet is my safety. And yours?)."

Next came, "Sada ISI Mark Waala Helmet Hi Prayog Kare. (Always use ISI marked helmet)."

And the last card read, "Aapki Surakhshit Yatra ki Shubkamna (We wish you a safe journey)."
