The actor’s driving license was suspended last year for drunken driving.

In an "instructive" lesson to all those who modify the noise level in their car to give off a sports car-like ‘feel’, actor Jai has released a video standing alongside a traffic policeman who had caught him doing exactly that.

On Tuesday, actor Jai was seen and very much heard cruising the streets of Nungambakkam in his car. Stopping him in his wheels and significantly bringing about a sudden reduction in the noise pollution, traffic cops warned the actor to not amplify his engine noise.

Instantly assuming the role of brand ambassador for the don’t-do-what-I-just-did campaign, a smiling Jai looked into a camera even as the cops were demonstrating to him just how loud his car was.

An enlightened Jai declared, “If you keep the sound like this, first you will be caught by the traffic inspector.”

Elaborating on his ‘meeting’ with the traffic cop, Jai said, “After today's meeting, however big the noise level, his car will be seized. If you keep the noise like this, it damages the hospitals and birds nearby. So nobody should keep the sound like this. So in the future, if anyone keeps the sound like this, the first thing is the car will be seized.”

Turning to the bemused cop, the actor asked, “Am I correct, sir?”

Ending with a ‘humble request’ to not use such sounds in the future, actor Jai was let off with a warning.

Jai rammed his car into a divider in Adyar in September last year when driving drunk. He was booked under Indian Penal Code sections 185 (driving by a drunken person or by a person under the influence of drugs) of the Motor Vehicles Act and 279 (rash driving or riding on a public way), leading to a six-month suspension of his license.

In 2014 too, the actor was reportedly involved in a similar incident near Kasi theatre in Chennai.
