Think about your head while you still have one


It really isn’t a bad idea to wear a helmet.

Irrespective of whether it’s enforced or not.

Irrespective of whether it will ruin your expensive hair-do or not.

Irrespective of whether you think it’s a plan by some well connected helmet manufacturer to make a quick crore, or not.

All said and done, it’s a very good plan to save your head from some speeding lorry’s wheels.

I quote from an earlier post by GV Balasubramanian to emphasise my point.

“The Chennai traffic police recorded 1136 fatal accidents in 2006; of these nearly 50 per cent were two-wheeler accidents. According to the Police Department only two people have died with helmets.”

    And some guy has gone to court to say that the ban is illegal because he can’t drive fast while wearing a helmet.

    Maybe he won’t live long enough to pursue the case…
