A video appears to show a motorcycle going up in flames while patrolling. It’s illegal in the State of Punjab to petrol and sit on the bike at the same time. The motorcyclists left their engines running while fueling while the passenger in the back played with his mobile phone.
It’s strictly prohibited to run the engine and fuel and using a cell phone at a gas station. The static electricity coming from the engine can ignite the fumes and the cell phone frequency is plenty to act as an ignition.
Many people are aware of the dangers of using a cell phone at a gas station and it can result in a tragedy. The best thing to do is to keep the engines off and never use a cell phone at the gas station.
