You won’t get petrol any longer without a helmet; New rule imposed

No two-wheeler rider will get petrol from the petrol pump if he or she is found without a helmet within the jurisdiction of Kolkata Police from December 8.  “No petrol pump within the jurisdiction of Kolkata Police shall henceforth sell petrol to any such two-wheeler rider who arrives at the petrol pump riding a two-wheeler without wearing a helmet as well as carries pillion rider without a helmet,” read the order.

The order will be applicable from December 8 to February 2, 2021. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that “Wear a helmet and ride bikes. I am not like those governments that say you have to pay Rs 2,000 if you don’t wear a mask. I would rather request you all to wear a mask. The government will give helmets to those who cannot afford it. One can report to their local police station and register their names, addresses. They will be given helmets.”
