Helmets a must? No, not as yet

Bangalore: No date has been specified for making helmets mandatory for two-wheeler riders and pillion riders, home minister M P Prakash said on Thursday.
Though a notification to this effect was published 10 days ago, the date of implementation is yet to be decided, Prakash added.
However, at the Krishnarajsagar dam site on Wednesday, chief minister H D Kumaraswamy hinted at withdrawing the helmet rule saying the government has open mind on the rule and is ready to look afresh at the whole issue.
As a follow-up to the high court order, the government had decided to go ahead with the helmet rule as it is a constitutional obligation on the government’s part to implement the court order. But in the wake of opposition to the rule, the government is planning to take stock of the situation afresh, the CM added.
