Man jailed for throwing currency notes
A youngster from Noida chose to throw out money from the Mahindra Thar while driving the vehicle on the public roads.

Later, Police commissioner, Gautam Buddha Nagar shared a picture on Twitter showing Mahindra Thar parked in the police compound. The cops have seized the Mahindra Thar from the owner and also have arrested the owner of the car who was throwing currency bills out of the vehicle and used a hooter on his car.
Social media videos used as evidence
The police have started sending challans online so they do not need any physical presence at the time of the incident. A small clip of the violation or even CCTV footage is enough evidence for the cops to book the violator.
Even if you upload your own video while violating a traffic law or rule, you can receive a challan from the police. Doing any kind of stunts on public roads is illegal and the violators can even go to jail along with paying massive fines.
Doing stunts on public roads can land you in a spot due to various reasons. If anyone wants to practice stunting or want to record videos, it should be done on private property such as race tracks and even farmhouses. Also, one should take note that such stunts are extremely dangerous.
