    Police should not ban riders with full face helmets on while riding instead they should bring a rule warning people not to walk with the full face helmets on road.

    Can anyone tell me the number of Hartals/Protest Rally we had during the last 6 months and any corresponding period during the former governments any 6 month period.

    There were several crimes that were committed under the cover of full face helmets during past couple of months and I think they must be banned. Most of the accidents involving motorcycles we see on the road are due to speed and negligence of motorcycle riders. So if the riders slow down and obey the traffic law, then they can minimize injuries to themselves while wearing a helmet that shows the face.

    Precisely, stupid and changing laws enacted by people who are fit for their posts. Followed by Protest and disruption by those who has nothing better to do.
