To ensure more people are wearing helmets while riding two-wheelers, Kerala’s Transport and Road Safety Commission has issued a directive that all riders across the state would get ISI-approved helmets free of cost at the time of delivery of the vehicles starting from April 1.

Not just helmets, other accessories like front and rear number plates, rear-view mirror, sari guard, crash guard and handle grip for pillion riders will also be provided during the time of delivery. The owners will not be charged for any of these accessories. The motorcycle manufacturers have been told that their right to operate in the state will be cancelled if such directive is not followed.

Such directive will be able to curb the number of accidents in the state involving bike riders. Last year, more than 20,000 cases of bike accidents were reported from Kerala, with the highest of 3,726 been reported from Thiruvananthapuram alone.


The Logical Indian appreciates the initiative taken by Kerala to ensure people wear helmets while riding two-wheelers. We request other states to try to implement such rules, if it really works out to be a good decision.
