The TN govt is making wearing helmets for two wheeler driver and pillion rider(s) mandatory from June 01 2007. Tiruchi joins the elite group of 5 cities along with Chennai, CBE, Salem, Madurai and Tirunelveli where this new rule will be enforced from June 01. The Govt is planing to pass this ordinance by Mar 01.
The rule is going to be in effect in peak Summer and no doubt the people are going to start complaining about this uncomfortable situation. But with the traffic as chaos as it is , this becomes a necessary hindrance.
Now with the retail and sale craze ( Ethukku eduthaalum Sale thaan, ippo) will the two wheeler vehicle dealers come up with a plan of buy a vehicle and get two helmets ( His and her styles of course) free schemes.
Maybe they get some lessons from Sarathaas on how to make profit by attracting more people by schemes like this.
Also, will this law affect the kids who travel with their parents either sandwiched between them or standing / sitting (over the petrol tank ) in the front.
Just a thought !!!!!!
