According to traffic police officials, two-wheeler riders have to wear helmets now and wear them fastening the strap to the head, or else they will be penalized. The police cited two examples: the Shamirpet accident where a rider dashed his bike into a road divider and died as his unstrapped helmet flew off and fell in the lake. The police claim he might have survived if he had worn the strap of the helmet properly.


And the other case was the much-publicized one where actor Sai Dharam Tej escaped with severe injuries when his helmet, which was also not strapped on tightly, fell off when his motorbike skidded on the sand.


According to Cyberabad traffic DCP S. Vijay Kumar, wearing a helmet properly is as effective as someone wearing a mask on his face during the pandemic. However, he also added that it was pointless to wear a helmet if it is not strapped properly as in case of an accident, it was prone to fall off the head, exposing the rider to a fatal injury.


Vijay Kumar also mentioned that according to Section 129 of the Motor Vehicle Act, a protective headgear, which by virtue of its material, shape, and design, could be expected to protect the person driving a motorcycle from injury in case of an accident. Therefore, it should be tightly fastened to the head with provisions on the headgear. Those riders who are found without strapping the headgear will be booked and fined.


"Except for a Sikh who is wearing a turban, every person riding a bike of any class or description must wear a helmet sticking to the ISI," says Rajesh Kumar, a road safety expert. He also explained how essential it is to wear a well-fitting helmet with an effective chinstrap system. He also asked the riders to wear their helmet covering their forehead, not tilted back.
