In a move to make helmet must for two-wheeler riders, the  Road Security Authority has decided not to provide petrol for the rule violators here from now on.

The Authority has decided to implement this idea on an experimental basis for three months in the city limits. It has entered into a consensus with 18 petrol bunk owners regarding this.

The Authority plans to expand this regulation to other cities and across the state after getting the feedback from the people of Kochi.

Twelve lakh people were fined last year for not wearing helmets across the state. It is beloved that the new move will shed the workload of the police considerably.

Such an idea was implemented in Lucknow earlier. However, it did not prove effective as the move did not get legal approval.

The regulation will come into effect in Kochi after the meeting of the Road Security Authority to be held next week.
