Govt to make helmets mandatory for children, speed limit also to be fixed

New Delhi: Several measures have already been taken to protect children in the car. But now the Central Government is soon going to frame safety rules related to two-wheelers that will further strengthen the future of the country, that is, the safety of children on the road. After making it mandatory for women to wear helmets, the central government is now going to make helmets mandatory for children sitting behind two-wheelers. The Central Government has proposed to amend the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 for the same.

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari's Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has issued draft rules to seek public opinion. Once it gets the green signal, these rules will apply. Sources say these rules could come into force by the end of 2022. If a child from 9 months to 4 years is also riding on a 2-wheeler back after the rule of wearing a helmet is mandatory for children, the child will be required to wear a crash helmet or a helmet worn with a bicycle. The standard of this helmet will be determined by the government.

The speed limit will also have to be taken care of if you are riding two-wheelers with the child. In this case, the speed of your bike or scooter cannot exceed 40 kmph. According to the proposed rules, you will have to pay a fine of Rs 1,000 for violating it, as well as the driving licence will be seized for three months.
