Helmets still optional?

12 Feb

As I am walking on Sunday evening, I observe that half the scooterists are still plying sans helmets. I ran into a kid from my neighbourhood (riding without helmet of course).

On asking he told me he doesnt wear it on weekends.

Maybe the ground gets softer over the weekend (or the head gets harder).

In the meantime – Wish you and your family a very happy Bandh

    Vijay,
    sumne ondu side ‘business’ idea!! nodi 🙂

    Also, surprised to see that ‘Yenri’ from you, .. Generally bangalore based people use that term, I mean the localites !
    Ravi Belegere keeps using this term every now & then. Girish hampali also used this term in the radio.. Now its consicouly to watch this term…
    Generally here, wife calls their husbands as ‘ree’ which I never felt comfortable with, I call my tarakaari guy or some shop vendor like this.. 1 kg beans kodri or kodi.. 🙂

    This is basic problem with our people. follow the rules stictly I am going only to next raod no helmet, weekends no traffic no helmet, put helmet on elbow or be it on lock on vehicle or let the pillion carry it in hand all these are ways and means of not following the traffic rules. way and means to; avoid using helmet.
    for you own safety and safety of you dear and near please use it
    let goodsenses prevail with all citizens

    Is it compulsory to wear helmets in Bangalore? I googled it and all articles that came up are dated back to 2006!!, where the congress has lobbied that since the traffic moves at snail’s pace in Blr, the compulsory helmet rule is redundant!! And I am still looking to find out if it is compulsory. BUT going by the hard and soft theory, I am sure I don’t want to find out either now (i.e, if it’s compulsory of if roads gett softer/heads harder). I’ll just invest in one

    @Viji: It is cumpulsory…. ALL two wheelers…
