MYSURU: Members of the Association of Concerned and Informed Citizens, Mysuru, and other likeminded organizations held a meeting at the Institute of Engineers on Sunday to oppose the state government's move to make helmets compulsory for pillion riders from November.

They alleged that the move is aimed at helping companies manufacturing helmets. "Helmets are for the safety of the riders and if anybody dies in the eventuality of an accident, the government is not paying any compensation. There is no financial burden on the government. The new rule will only help companies manufacturing helmets. The Union government is also planning to increase the fine amount for the violators of the helmet rule. This is an easy way to collect revenue," said Nagendra, an activist.

"If the government wants to bring down accident deaths, there are many other issues that need its attention. Many youngsters, including students, are riding bikes without licences. The government must act against such violations," he added. 

Parthasarathi, an RTI activist, said that the number of two-wheeler accident deaths due to head injuries is less when compared to other reasons. "The move is highly impractical and unscientific."

A majority of two-wheeler users are from middleclass and poor families. "The new rule will affect them. Instead of implementing unscientific rules, the government must focus on improving the condition of roads and take action against people who drive rashly," said M Lakshman, a member of the association.
