Helmets may be made mandatory in Bangalore

Our Bureau

BANGALORE: The helmet rule may be back soon for two-wheeler riders in Bangalore.

Wearing of helmets was first made mandatory in 1994 but the rule was withdrawn later. According to the city Police Commissioner, Mr H.T. Sangliana, helmets are "a matter of life and death'' and the proposal is before the Government. According to the police statistics, the 6.5 million population in Bangalore has 16 lakh vehicles and there are over 700 fatal accidents every year.
