Recently, the Mayor of Hyderabad B Rammohan was fined Rs 100 for not wearing a helmet while driving a two-wheeler on city roads. This happened when he was moving in the city to know the issues people are facing in the city. Hyderabad traffic police should be appreciated for not sparing even the Mayor while implementing the road safety rule. It also came in a newspaper that an auto driver voluntarily wearing helmet while driving an auto! Everyone should realize the importance of safety for self while driving a two wheeler. One should not wear helmet for the sake of police and to avoid fine. Everyone should realize that helmets are for the safety of self, but not traffic police. If any part of the body gets damaged during an accident it can be repaired, but not the brain. A simple hemorrhage in brain is good enough to take the life silently may be immediately or at a later date! Many carry helmets with them but not wearing it. It is not known when they realize about road safety.
