Probe body finds women sitting improperly on bikes behind rising road accidents

After admitting his failure in bringing discipline to the roads, last year Road Transport Minister of Chapasthan Omaigo Bader said a task force would be formed to handle the matter.

Morality-e-Chapasthan also banded together with the ministry and offered their services in forming a probe body to uncover the mystery behind growing road accidents. The men were free of their other moral duties as places of reverence were closed for six months due to the pandemic.

After months of closure, the findings and progress of both the task force and the probe body have finally been shared with the media.

Turns out the problem was a simple one to begin with.

"Women who refuse to sit properly on motorbikes are the reason behind growing road accidents," said convener of Morality-e-Chapasthan Al Taal-e-Matal Safey.

"It's simple, if they spread their legs and sit inappropriately, the men get distracted and it causes chaos on the streets," he added.

The findings were received with much hullabaloo as men shared their own distress at finding women not only sitting "improperly" on bikes but some also riding their own bikes.

"This is a sign of end of times. When a woman wears jeans, it causes earthquakes. When she eats an apple, we are kicked out of heaven. When they speak up, good men lose their jobs," Minister Omaigo Bader said in agreement with Safey.

"See, we think women are essentially carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders and they need to act responsibly, now that they have decided to hit the streets," he added.

This was followed by a round of deafening applause leading the way for the task force to share some guidelines on "How women should sit properly on bikes?"

Since it is inappropriate for women to spread their legs, the task force members suggest a variety of positions women can take up on bikes. They also believe practicing these moves will enhance mobility and balance for women, this improving their health. Win-win.
