Sign the Petition to

Inspector General of Police

We agree that police has the responsibility to enforce traffic rules in par with avoiding accidents and thereby saving several lives. We agree the enforcement of traffic rules, which are appropriate and logical. We respect the genuine unbiased and non-corrupted cops and appreciate their service to the public and nation.

We are bikers, a part of general population, majority of youngsters, who love biking and cared about safety as well. We have our own choices of choosing the bikes and helmets as well, considering all of them have been allowed to be imported and sold legally, abiding government regulations. We buy bikes, parts and accessories which have been passed through the customs, not a 'smuggled' one. The government didn't ban the import of full face helmets and shaded visors as well.

The idea to ban full face helmets are a threat to a citizens freedom of choice, and their choice of their own safety. As the reason of the implementation of this regulation is not justifiable, and its affecting a rest of the biking community who are full face helmets. This decision is like arresting all members of particular community as for a crime committed by one member of the community. This is NOT logical, NOT justifiable, NOT acceptable. This is just similar to labeling all the full face helmet holders as criminals.

So please revise your decision and drop the enactment of the regulation of banning the full face helmets. We would support for a community of law abiding drivers, but in case of no rules with no sense.

Signed,

Mariano Rubharajan

The Police Spokesman told the media that the usage of full face helmets i.e. helmets which covers the face between the brows and chin are prohibited. In all parts of the world this helmet is proven to be safe. The reason for this decision, ashe said, "the law would be implemented as there had been instances where criminals escaped identification by using tinted visors". Yes we agree, tinted visors are not advisable due to poor visibility in dim light. But the accusing of 'escaped identification' and the ban on full face helmets is not reasonable, at all.

We agree that police has the responsibility to enforce traffic rules in par with avoiding accidents and thereby saving several lives. We agree the enforcement of traffic rules, which are appropriate and logical. We respect the genuine unbiased and non-corrupted cops and appreciate their service to the public and nation.

Apart from these, the top-officers make some decisions which appear to have no sense, just like the one to ban full face helmets. As far we know there are incidents of crimes at which criminals escaped with the full face helmets, hiding their identity. Then what about the people who robs in other vehicles, and who rob the other vehicles? Have you identified those criminals, as they didn't cover their faces with helmets

If this ban on full face helmets are reasonable, justifiable and meant to reduce number of crimes, can you consider to ban the liquor shop to avoid drunken driving? Casinos and massage centers to avoid brothels? But for such reason is that justifiable to ban these things?

The harmful substances like alcohol and cigarettes are widely available, even with the label "injurious to health" but do we need this ban? Seriously?

Support this petition, so we could tell the authorities that their decisions are not always correct and logical. They should drop the idea of implementing a rule with no satisfactorily justifiable reason
