The City Traffic Police have taken up the drive under Section 129 of the Motor Vehicles Act – 1998 and they have decided to impose fine from Rs 100 to Rs 200 for pillion riders.

Accidents on the rise Despite the police initiating a number of preventive measures, accidents involving two-wheelers are on the rise. Of the total of 237 accidents recorded from January to February in 2018, two-wheeler drivers were responsible for about 76 road accidents. In two-wheeler road accidents about 19 people died and as many as 67 were injured, while in four-wheeler road accidents, six died and 59 were injured, said Mr. Ramesh Kumar. Of the 19 deaths in this year, 80 % of them were in the age group between 18 and 35 years and 90 % of them were not wearing helmets and had died due to severe head injuries, said ACP (Traffic) K. Prabhakar. Mr. Prabhakar said, “Most of the fatal cases involving two-wheelers, the cause is head injuries. When wearing a helmet can save a life, why not wear it.
