Bengaluru Traffic Police book 7.4 lakh motorists for violating helmet rule


 

Bengaluru: With an intent to crack the whip against two-wheeler motorists for not following the mandatory helmet rule in the city, Bengaluru Traffic Police has booked 7,04,719 motorists so far this year. According to P Harishekaran, additional commissioner for traffic, the drive will be intensified keeping the safety of two-wheeler motorists in mind.

Apart from bikers, the police have also booked cases against riders for ferrying pillion riders who did not wear helmets. 4,90,185 pillion riders without helmets have been reported since January 2019 and fines were imposed. "A special drive is being taken up as schools and colleges will reopen and many students are expected to travel by two-wheelers. The intent is to bring about traffic discipline among these students and to ensure their safety," said P Harishekharan.

Lauding the efforts of Bengaluru City Traffic Police for cracking the whip against such drivers, Dr Gururaj G, HoD, Epidemiology, NIMHANS stressed the need to have helmets strapped on, in order to avoid any injury in the event of a crash.

"Two-wheelers are more prone to accidents. In case they wear helmets of good quality, injury to the brain can be minimised.  A head injury can leave a person dead or disable him or her for the rest of life. This apart, there will be an impact on the financial condition of the victim’s families and can reduce a well-to-do family to poverty due to the high cost of hospitalisation and treatment." said Dr Gururaj.
