I am using both my DOT/ECE helmets on a regular basis all over Bangalore. Havent caused any issue nor is there any checking going on. The latest update I heard was that the Bengaluru Traffic Police was not the competent authority to decide the legality of a helmet. Going by the sticker on the helmet was not a fool proof method either since the stickers were easily replicable. Hence if the ban must be enforced then the sale must be curbed or the competent authority must check for these helmets on the streets. Until either happens, its good to go.

I found an interesting video from FortNine . For those who are not familiar with this channel, here's a description in their own words

The first part of the video talks about the components that go into making of a modern helmet and the DOT, ECE & SHARP certifications. His humorous narration and knowledge is what makes his videos quite interesting and a treat to watch. Here are his other videos.

Here goes

Looks like the Bangalore police are at it again. A snippet from today's newspaper. Now with hefty penalties, I think this would worry many.

There was this line from a TV series - "One who doesnt know history is bound to repeat it". These police seem to be doing the same. Last year, the Bureau of Indian Standards stated that the police is no competent authority to decide on the genuinity of the helmets. Yet, they want to enforce such stuff. Not long before the lobby of imported helmet dealers take this to court and suspend the drive again. So now, if I put an ISI sticker on any helmet, the police cannot verify whether it is genuine or not. As simple as that.
