Hoping to discipline two-wheeler riders and to encourage them to wear helmets, the Lucknow Police on May 22 initiated the ‘No Helmet No Petrol’ drive.
Under this drive, a two-wheeler rider who is not wearing a helmet when he/she arrives at the petrol pump, would not be served petrol.
People are lauding the initiative taken by the UP government and are fully supporting it.
Many also believe that this will encourage two-wheeler riders to not leave their homes without a helmet and make them understand the importance of wearing it.
Reports also state that the UP government has asked all the petrol pumps to report any vehicle number to the transport authorities when they find a two-wheeler rider not wearing a helmet.
