Hyderabad traffic police made helmet mandatory for the person sitting behind

Hyderabad: In a bid to reduce injuries and deaths on city roads, the Hyderabad Traffic Police is strictly enforcing the helmet rule for two wheeler drivers. This applies not only to the driver but also to the rear occupants. Failure to do so will result in challaning of two wheeler owners.

The traffic police made it mandatory for the person sitting behind to wear a helmet and since people were not following it, they decided to challan them to bring some discipline. Some motorists complained that it was illogical to levy the fee without conducting an awareness campaign. “The rationale behind introducing helmets for rear riders is that in case of accidents, the rear riders also die and the enforcement of the rule will help in saving lives.

As per the latest data available, 36 previous riders died in 2019 with 106 riders without helmets and the number has doubled in 2020. Pillion riders are the third most susceptible category of road users, after pedestrians and two-wheelers with the potential for fatalities."
