    You are not fair allways

    Banning full face helmets will not solve the problem, it will make things worse because anyone who wants to have a career in burglary will cover the face with a cloth keeping room for the eyes and then wear a normal helmet, so that any one will not be able to recognise the person. Then what will the Government do? It will have to banned wearing helmets in total, putting the poor rider safety at risk.

    Fair N - You are so stupid to make such comments and call all motorcyclist law barkers or thieves. You are to use your common sense. Banning full face is not the remedy

    Okkoma horu,If any body Interested wear Full Cover must be Registered in near by police station

    A full face helmet is not an answer for riders safety, careless riding causes all safety issues to a rider. All helmets made to international safety standards are knows as protective gear and provides a same level of protection as a full face helmet.baning full face helmet is a good move for road riders.

    I was punched by a person wearing full face helmet. It should be banned. Innocent people of this country should not be punished for criminal mined people wearing full face helmet

    In a country where terrorism reigned many times, from the tamil extremists to leftist extremists, it is necessary to be on the alert of a resurgence

    Very true. When new Govt come to power they change everything regardless. That is why we are in this mess at the moment !

    Dee Monday, 30 March 2015 12:57 AM

    Full face is a style only. What protection? And where do they think they can race wearing full face! These fools make an issue out of everything.

    Push Monday, 30 March 2015 12:00 AM

    Implimenting laws like this is not very sensible.

    Freebird Sunday, 29 March 2015 10:35 PM

    Tell these protesters about the crimes committed with these helmets. if they want to use full face helmet ask them to wear a face visible full face helmet not the dark class helmets via DM Android App

    Every Bank ,exchange center,and top businesses have security guards,why do they permit persons with full face helmets donned to enter premises? Ban these helmets been worn when not riding.

    This is second time today

    Fair N Square Sunday, 29 March 2015 12:07 PM

    why would they protest? IF a law is made EVERYONE has to abide by it... Either they are the ones who are involved in illegal activities...or are paid by the MR clan to make an issue out of EVERYTHING... see if booruwansa is involved...

    Following an accident most of the motorcyclists die because of head injuries. This face cover helmats are designed to prevent such head injuries so This decision should be reconsidered to protect innocent lives.

    siribiris Sunday, 29 March 2015 05:29 PM

    Let them to go to hell. U cant run a country this way.

    Arosha Sunday, 29 March 2015 05:17 PM

    Only the people who ride bikes can appreciate a full face helmet. The police should focus on better security at financial institutes rather than putting so many lives in danger.

    Chirantha Sunday, 29 March 2015 03:44 PM

    I have a recording where the man behind this move DIG TRAFFIC Amarasiri Senaratne accepts that banning full face helmets cannot stop crime.

    Don Don Sunday, 29 March 2015 03:00 PM

    Any format of covering face and hiding the identity is a threat to the national security.

    adamsapple Sunday, 29 March 2015 01:33 PM

    Hey fair n square u must be really dumb or stupid to attach everything to MR or politics...

    adamsapple Sunday, 29 March 2015 01:30 PM

    If a law is being imposed to put someones life in danger... they have the freedom to protest to it... n dont drag everything to MR or politics...

    NotStupid Sunday, 29 March 2015 01:26 PM

    Fair N Square are you retarded?

    freddy Sunday, 29 March 2015 01:02 PM

    there is no fair and square answers, only commonsense, not common candidate, motor cycle helmets are for the protection of riders.

    dinesh Sunday, 29 March 2015 12:49 PM

    Government should then give people helmets to replace the full cover types ones they own everytime the government flip flops on the regulations.
