Are you kidding, Amit? You think someone, who doesn't care for his life, will care for insurance?

with ref to helmets rule, India might be the first country, where Govt is saying drive safely and citizens marching on Govt saying no safty for us please

On a serious note I think Govt should instruct pandus to teach and follow trafic rules...if we foll.ow the trafic rules the way they are follwed in europe (my exp) our accident rates can come down by more than 80%
