Police press accelerator on  day two of helmet rule

The traffic police in the City made all efforts to enforce the helmet rule for pillion riders on the second day on Thursday and continued to book violators.

 The enforcement percentage on the second day was much higher as the cases registered against the violators were four times higher than the first day.

The traffic cops booked a total of 5,861 cases, including 2,924 from West Division and 2,937 from East Division. These cases were booked till 6 pm and the police continued to catch pillion riders without helmets till late night, said the police. “We concentrated more on issuing warnings on the first day, but cracked the whip on Day Two by registering more cases,” Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) M A Saleem told Deccan Herald.
“We witnessed very good response in the central areas of the City with about 75 per cent of the pillion riders wearing helmets. We need to concentrate on outer areas and peripheral areas where there are more violations,” he said.

Saleem said that the police would book more cases on Friday as they would concentrate on the outer and peripheral areas.  “We want everyone to comply with the rule and ensure about 90 per cent compliance, which would be satisfactory,” he said. The police would achieve the 90 per cent compliance early next week, Saleem added.
