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
FortNine creates motorcycle and gear reviews with a rare dose of honesty. We also share accessible and incredible places to go ride. Our goal is to entertain our audience, but also to stay truthful.

Gear up for your next adventure at
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

Cheers !
