Wearing Helmets....


Just about few weeks ago, Police had installed two signature campaign boards at the entrance of Brigade Road near the Arts and Crafts junction and Opera junction where people signed in favour of the helmet campaign then. This RTO drive on the awareness on wearing Helmets have been nulled by the recent news.
Despite statistics and the opinion of doctors, the Karnataka government has backtracked once again on the implementation of the helmet rule for two-wheeler riders. Lives, which could have been saved, will continue to be lost as wearing a helmet on the state's roads will continue to be optional.

Wearing helmet will reduce the injury, as I know...

This flip-flop is not confined to Bangalore alone. Pune too is going thru a similar 'debate'.

BTW, talking about helmets, did you see this photo!?
