Helmets must for women riders in Delhi

For women riders in Delhi, it may be soon mandatory in the capital to wear helmets. The Delhi government has told the high court on Wednesday that it would amend the motor vehicle rules to bring all women riders, including those of the pillion seat, under the helmet rue. As per the Motor Vehicle Rules 1993, Sikhs wearing turbans and women are exempt from wearing helmets while riding motorcycles and scooters. "Every year, 60 to 70 women die due to head injuries sustained in road accidents involving two-wheelers. The government should make wearing helmets compulsory for all pillion riders as well," the petition by social filmmaker Ulhas P R said. In the 1990s, the city government had sought to introduce a law for making helmets compulsory for all two-wheeler riders, including the Sikh community. But the move was thwarted in the wake of protests.
