helmets for pillion riders and children on bikes

This petition had 57 supporters

This petition has been started to bring to the notice of the state government and make the citizens of Maharashtra aware of the hazards of riding bikes WITHOUT helmets. Although the rule of rider wearing the helmet has been made compulsory since many years, it is necessary for the government and RTO to apply HELMET RULE FOR EVERYONE RIDING PILLION on bikes ,ADULTS AND CHILDREN .

The solution to this can come once the RTO makes it compulsory, as without a proper law in place, its difficult to control citizens from doing it. Alongwith this , RTO and government need to stress the IMPORTANCE of helmets for pillion adults and children,via their media marketing channels , banners , posters etc.

I'm sure everyone who gets hold of the newspaper everyday, reads about the number of deaths caused when bikes are hit upon by other driving vehicles, due to which the rider and pillion are affected. In many unfortunate cases the pillion adult / children have lost their lives on the spot due to no helmet. Today also I came across two such articles where a 9yr old boy going to school and an 18 yr old boy riding pillion lost their lives after the road accident sustaining severe head injuries.

I'm looking forward for all of your support to create this change urgently with the help of our Regional Transport Office, HON. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, and Transport Commisioner MR.Praveen Gedam.

Thank you
