Default Re: Helmets to be mandatory for pillion riders in Maharashtra

Just came across this article today. Heights of stupidity! Pune citizens band together to fight against making helmets compulsory for 2-wheelers saying average traffic speeds doesn't require usage of helmet!

This isn't new; the same happened earlier during the first helmets-to-be-compulsory wave (more than a decade ago).

It takes a special kind of stupid to protest a rule that is for your benefit. I don't understand why some multiplexes waste precious minutes on a video highlighting the importance of helmets.

Thankfully, most companies in Pune don't allow two-wheelers inside premises unless both rider and pillion are wearing a helmet.

People are smart enough to get down at the gate and walk in and wait out for their ride back home. Till the time people actually realize the benefit of wearing a helmet and its absolute necessity, nothing will help at all

Pune's anti-helmet circus is now coming to Mumbai

South Mumbai loses its head over helmets.

Quote:
Over 300 residents took out a march and a delegation, which included Lodha, met deputy police commissioner Dnyanes Chavan to discuss the helmet penalty exemption. Chavan told Mirror there would be no change in the enforcement of the helmet rule. “Action against helmetless riders will continue. The law clearly says that helmets are compulsory,” he said.
