Helmet rule for two-wheelers and driving license for all motor vehicles will be strictly implemented in twin cities from Wednesday. If any person caught riding a motorcycle or scooter without wearing a helmet and also motorists without driving licenses would be severely punished. The punishment ranges from a fine and also jail sentence.
It might be mentioned here that the High Court, taking into cognizance the increasing number of fatal accidents, especially those involving two-wheelers, had recently directed the Transport Department and the Traffic Police authorities to strictly enforce the rule of compulsory wearing of helmets by motorcyclists and scooterists.
The transport and traffic officials launched in a big way a motivation drive to encourage

citizens about the benefits of wearing helmets while driving two-wheelers. A big ad campaign was also undertaken by putting up posters and flexis at all important junctions and also on main thoroughfares regarding the importance of wearing helmets.
If a person is caught without a driving license, the vehicle would be seized and released after payment of fine.  If the person is caught for the same offence a second time, then he would be jailed for a day, a third time offence would result in two days imprisonment and fine.
 Motorists also should not forget to wear seat belts and carry driving license. If anyone is found talking on mobile phone while driving, he or she also would also have to face the punishment for breaking the road rules.
