Your social media timelines might be flooded with videos of Kiki Challenge and you probably might be planning to take up this ‘dancing along with a moving car’ challenge. But beware, because this might land you in trouble.
Different police departments across India are posting advisories against people taking part in such challenges. They say that Kiki challenge not only poses risk but also is punishable under the Motor Vehicles Act.
It was Mumbai Police which first reacted to it:
Not just a risk for you but your act can put life of others at risk too. Desist from public nuisance or face the music ! #DanceYourWayToSafety #InMySafetyFeelingsChallenge pic.twitter.com/gY2txdcxWZ

Jaipur Police went a bit too far:

And so did Rajasthan Police:
Drinking while driving is injurious to health, so is #KikiChallenge. Think twice before doing this stupid stunt on roads as it’s fraught with dangers and can throw tragic surprises!

Punjab Police expressed his love for the citizens:
Kiki might not, But #PunjabPolice has a lot of love for its citizens.
Which is why we challenge you to do the smart thing and not dance in the middle of the road with the car door open.
