Actor Hrithik Roshan , who enjoyed an amazing 2019 with two successful films, recently took his social networks and wrote a heartfelt note on the issue that affects everyone. The actor met the video while surfing the web and, as a responsible citizen, spread the word about the recent steps that Mumbai Police He has promised to reduce the ceaseless horn. He wrote a long note and this really explains how he feels the initiative.
The video states how Mumbai Police has come up with an insightful strategy to reduce the honking - a traffic light system that resets to the red light on the sound of car horns, if it reached 85 dB threshold hence, the initiative- #HonkMoreWaitMore .
In his social networks, an excerpt from his publication said: There is a cultural deficit in our programming when it comes to sounding the horn without meaning. It is probably caused by a combination of certain misconceptions. We assume that other people in traffic are not as rushed as we are. Which is certainly incorrect. We all want to get where we are going sooner rather than later. So why do we honk? It is not necessary. We believe that honking the horn will magically make traffic move faster or change the red light to green sooner in some way. It will not .

There is a cultural deficit in our programming when it comes to mindless honking. It probably is caused by a combination of certain wrong beliefs. We assume that the other people in traffic are not as much in a hurry as us. Which is certainly incorrect. We all want to get to where we are going sooner rather than later. So why do we we honk? Not needed . We believe that honking will magically make the traffic move faster or turn the red light green sooner somehow. It will not. . We also honk because we can see that the pedestrians never follow the rules and that becomes the general belief system - because we secretly know that we ourselves don't follow the rules while crossing the streets and cross sections. . And we are so comfortable with the noise pollution because we are accustomed to it. Which is really sad. But easily reversible. Plus blowing that horn has become a kind of mindless venting of all our daily irritations and frustrations, it gives us some kind of satisfaction that we are letting off some steam. It actually does the opposite. The noise only aggravates all that pent up irritation inside. It does not HELP it. . I am dreaming of a mumbai that is more patient, more trusting, more aware, more giving, more disciplined, more responsible, more present and all that will only come from wanting to be better as individual citizens for the sake of our city. Let’s do things together which will make us even more proud of this magnificent city. My secret suspicion is that just the act of being aware of NOT to blow that horn will make us more present and add peace and serenity to our days wether inside or outside the car. . You cannot dream of peace with decibels at its peak. Patience is the solution to our chaos. As a proud Mumbaikar, I volunteer to minimize noise pollution. This movement by the mumbai police is just such a brilliant initiative. And #HonkMoreWaitMore is a creative hack by our Traffic Controllers. 💪🏻 P.S: I am posting this as a citizen who was impacted by this video I saw yesterday and this post is not a tie up or endorsement ... but my own personal thoughts and emotions. #HonkResponsibly #mumbaipolice @ mumbai.police_

The video ends with a message feel free to honk if you don't mind waiting and that's what the video highlights.
