Wearing helmets/ seat belts should become a habit rather than a compulsion.
I even wear a helmet on my bicycle (those cycle helmets) even though my friends laugh at me. But i love myself.

Few years back, on one of my initial runs to Trichy from Bangalore (just after buying the Alto) has a close call but was saved due to seat belt being worn.
Doing good speed and suddenly noticed a cyclist cutting across the road. He mis-judge my speed. I had to go to extreme right causing the right wheel to go offroad and with the brakes fully engaged, caused the vehicle so spin.
Did a 360+180 degree turn and stopped on the other side of the road facing the direction I came down from.
Was able to hold on and not let the car swerve around the road because of me and my brother wearing the seat belt. If not, I would certainly have been bumped off the seat and hence would not have been able to keep the steering tight and brake locked. Phew!

I see jughead is no longer an active member, but does anyone have any idea what happened to his friend's brother?

About 9 months back when I was riding my unicorn at around 60 to 70 kmph ,I hit a person who crossed the road on his kinetic honda. He was thinking about something may be, that he didnt look at my side of the road. I hit him and there were big deep scratches on the forehead region of my helmet and the chin region. Only thing I was having was bruises on hands and legs. But unfortunately for the other person( he was not wearing a helmet) he sustained head injuries and had to undergo surgery for that. Luckily he is fine now.From then I always wear my helmet when I go out on my bike.

Wishing him a speedy recovery. May god help him. I know it is such an ordeal for the family and imagine parents seeing their young child lying like a dead vegetable in front of them.It is painful to the core.

Recently I took my brother scooty which has very less operative back and full operative front brakes to my girlfriend house. She was insisting of riding that vehicle even I warned her that brakes are not good. At last I agreed to drive her up to the corner of the street and usually I wouldn’t have asked her to keep helmet for such a short distance but I don’t know why my heart said to insist her on wearing helmet and I made her to wear helmet and sat on the rear seat.
She was driving the scooty at around 20 to 30 km/hr speed and an auto fellow suddenly applied brakes. she got panicked and unable to apply the brakes skidded the vehicle. I was shocked by seeing the impact with which her headed hitted the road, if the helmet was not there she might have been in hospital. Luckily got escaped with just minor scratches on the leg.
So please guys be careful even for a distance of 100mts also please be careful while driving.
Apologies for the long post.
