Mangalore: Traffic police seize over 100 sub-standard helmets from riders


Mangalore: Traffic police seize over 100 sub-standard helmets from riders

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangalore (DV)

Mangalore, Jan 22: In a bid to make riding safer in the city, the Mangalore traffic police on Tuesday January 22 carried out a special campaign and seized sub-standard helmets that did not have ISI seal.

The operation was carried out at Pumpwell on Monday January 21 too, and altogether, nearly 125 helmets were seized over the two days. All the helmets were later destroyed and dumped into trash bins.

The traffic police noted that though riders wear helments, many of the helmets were of poor quality and not good enough to protect the rider's head.

"Many of the helmets do not have ISI mark. It has also come to our notice that many riders wear plastic helmets which can cause severe injury to the brain if the person meets with accident," said a police official speaking to Daijiworld.

The police seized more than 50 helmets within Bunder police station limits alone. One of the riders when stopped by the police pleaded that he had no money to buy a branded helmet. However, police replied that they had to fulfil their duty and seized his helmet.

It is said that helmets of nearly 85 percent bike riders do not meet ISI standards. In October 2010, the state government made it compulsory for riders to wear ISI mark helmets. However, despite the law, markets are flooded with sub-standard helmets, and riders are often content to buy them than spend more on standard helmets.

    Mangalore cops should realize that the ISI helmets are worn by guys who care about safety.. Rest of the helmets are worn only to comply to the rule. Now in a place like Mangalore where it is humid 90% of the year..how do you manage wearing Helmet. You sweat like a pig that if you wear a helmet you will meet with an accident out of irritation and heat. The guys who make the rules should actually be made to ride the two wheelers to understand this frustation

    Some 4 to 5 years ago one of the traffic police officer openly told the riders can wear any type of helmet just to avoid head injury. There is no need to wear ISI mark helmets. What is the guarantee that the shopwallas sell genuine ISI branded helmets? The traffic police should also inspect the helmets shops and book cases against them in case they sell duplicate ISI branded helmets. In addition to this the traffic police should alsobook the four wheeler drivers who profusely talk over phone while driving as this causes accidents. Number of four wheeler drivers speak continously over cell phone which needs to be stopped by levying heavy penalty.

    Mangalore City Traffic Police wakes up from its deep slumber “again”. First, they irresponsibly remove the tinted sun films on Cars leaving the glass damaged and blurred forever (WITHOUT HAVING ANY INSTRUMENT TO CHECK THE FILM’S RATING). Then they confiscate the Vacuum horns in Buses and other heavy vehicles. Today we still see Cars with tinted glasses in the City [Maybe the Traffic Police forgot about the whole thing]. We also see Buses with ear-shattering Vacuum horns plying in the City.
    In this case, the Inspector is reacting as if motorists have suddenly started wearing such sub-standard helmets. I have seen the police themselves wear such helmets!
    Good move though, but I hope they will maintain at least this rule.

    the polize should first make all the 3,4,6,10 wheelers to follow proper rules in their driving and also on their pollutions . With over speed buses & cars, driving at extreme right side over Smokey and dust filled Lorries, and no rule auto rickshaws even ISI is not enough. So police should first try to solve these problems with big vehicle’s then u can say "u drive with a ISI helmet" or if you are so good in managing these heavy vehicles u can also "leave the helmet to one’s choice" . Anyhow good to see our polize is too much in help for saving ones life with ISI.. :)

    The primary goal of a motorcycle helmet is motorcycle safety - to protect the rider's head during impact, thus preventing or reducing head injury or saving the rider's life and helmets reduce the risk of head injury by around 69% and death by around 42%.
    There are other types of headwear - often called "beanies," "brain buckets", or "novelty helmets", but they are not intended for motorcycling. These helmets are not certified and are generally only used to provide the illusion of compliance with mandatory helmet laws. RTO should take action on those who use these halmets and those who don’t use chin strap. It is a very good move by the RTO but there should be always check on halmets at every junction so that the youngsters use safer halmets and strap them too.

    oh! what a great job by the traffic policemen! they usually do the job like this occasionally. if they would have done this job on everyday, everyhour, riders would be very careful before buy such kind of helmets? Does the same traffic policemen able to punish those vendors as not to sell these kind of non saftey helmets or non-isi marked helmets? How they will stop them, cuz those work are not the part of their job. they might simply evade from the point of such issue if we dare to oppose their action. Shame, shame to the rules of the Govt. However, why helmet is not compulsory on the highway?

    It is not only the ISI marked helmets which matter, but even those riders do not strap the helmets when they wear. Concerned cops on duty must check this too. Some riders wear the helmets only to comply the rule by showing that they are wearing a helmet, but not concerned about their safety.

    Good Job by the traffic police. However, there are many many major traffic offenses carried out by buses, autos and trucks. Rash driving, demanding more (absurb) driving on the wrong lanes, parking and picking passengers in the middle of the road, horrifying horns, drunken driving etc etc etc. Perfectly understand that implementing these is indeed a uphill task. But first comes the resolve from the people and the police together. Banners wont help. But yes regular checks like this one on a daily basis, till the offenders have learnt thier lessons the hard way, will surely bring a change in the attitude of the people. Remember, people have to be educated. Many of them dont even know proper traffic rules.

    2. Please book those city bus operators who stuff people like cattle in their buses, far above permissible levels.

The 4 wheel drivers should also have some parking sense, why do not the traffic police seize 4 wheelers which are parked on roads, footpaths, no parking zones, etc. Looks like the authorities are getting a huge kick back from some HELMET company.

    Mangalore is a special place wherein majority two wheeler riders use plastic helmet shaped caps usually used by construction sites by workers.This was going on for several years.At last RTO has awaken from deep sleep and initiated action.
    One thing is sure,Mangalore being a coasstal city and sun is very heat here people using real helmets will be put to lot of inconvenience.RTO can think of exploring usage of "muttale" instead of ISI mark helmets!
