Centre moots helmet rule for kids above 4
The government on Tues day introduced amendments to the Motor Vehicles Act in Lok Sabha proposing mandatory helmet for everyone above four years while exempting Sikhs wearing turban from the helmet rule.
The amendments also make it mandatory for driver to secure a child below 14 years with a safety belt and failing to do so would attract Rs 1,000 fine. The proposed changes empower traffic police to impound driving licence in case the driver is caught jumping traffic signal, driving under influence of alcohol or drugs, using cellphone or driving the wrong way .
