The Appeal Court today extended the interim order issued staying the operation of the police circular banning the use of full-face helmets, until September 2.

    Could you ask the courts to drop the ban on Tinted Visors too. Tinted visors reduce heat gain in to the helmet which otherwise creates rider fatigue. Also it reduces glare which can temporary blind the rider too.

    I cant understand why the stupid policy makers cant take a decision to implement a policy, to the riders the helmets should ware only when they ride the bicycles and they should not ware the helmets while they walk on the streets or entering any super market or banks and if they Cort they should be fine on the spot simple and sweet,
