Default Re: Open Face vs. Full Face Helmets : How Safe are they?

Hello everyone,

So this happened on March 1st. I was on the way to my cousin's place from work and was stuck in traffic on Link Road in Goregaon due to ongoing Metro construction. Suddenly, l feel a thud on my full face helmet and look around to realise a gentleman on a scooter behind me, wearing an open face helmet is bleeding from his cheek. What happened was that a stone, from I don't know where, had hit my head, deflected off my helmet and landed on said gentleman's cheek. Had he been wearing a full face helmet he would have avoided the impact, just like I did.

I humbly request all Bhp-ians to not only wear helmets, but also to wear proper full face helmets even if you ride 'just a scooter' or 'only a short distance' or any other scenario where an open face helmet may be 'useful'.

Received this newspaper cutting at one of my riding WhatsApp groups. It seems, after Bengaluru, Hyderabad is also geared up to ban half-faced helmets.
