There is an amendment to the Helmet rule in TN which reads like this.

Compulsory wearing of helmet shall not apply to

1) persons who belong to Meivazhi Sabha or Meivazhi Salai who wear turban while riding a motorcycle 

2) woman or child riding on motorcycle as pillion riders.

When I read this I could not help myself but to laugh out loud.  In Trichy, I don’t see anyone wearing helmets in two wheelers be it male , female , driver or pillion rider. Recently I was in Chennai and did not see much use there as well.

So when the rule itself is not followed / enforced, why bother amending it

Why waste time and paper.

Why not just eat crow and withdraw the rule itself citing the incapability of adherence and enforcement.
