    its becoz lack of awareness in India. male buys helmet from roadside vender only to skip Chalan from police.some even wear cricket helmet..

    woman hahah they think they are super woman. in Chandigarh sikh woman are exempted from wearing helmet i dont know y.. they think they r angel of god.

    other community woman also say to police when caught that they r sikh woman:pound::pound::laugh:

    People are more bothered about their hairdo getting spoilt than save their heads so many dont wear a helmet at all or wear helmets that are not suitable.

    I have always worn a full helmet the day I started riding a bike, ah my Hero Honda Splendor!! February 1995!! Still remember that day!

    Helmets are really essential for a bike rider. Even a small accident on a bike could turn fatal in case of head injury. It just cost a few hundred rupees. Atleast your families will feel safe.

    I use helmets only because of dust and police not for safety reasons, honestly speaking.

    In Chennai, traffic police wont stop you if you wear helmet, you can ride even without license but not without helmet :)

    A helmet saves your head and also saves your head and face from wind, rain, sun and dust!!

    WEAR A GOOD HELMET AND BE SAFE!
