Lahore: The Punjab government decided to deal the motorcyclists sternly and advised that without helmet bikes will be seized.
Following the helmet campaign, the Punjab Home Department ordered to seize the bikes of those riders who are without helmet, informed sources.
The additional home secretary ordered the Director Inspector General traffic to take strict actions against the people who are found riding without helmets. He also directed to that action should be taken against the petrol pumps who are giving petrol to the riders without helmets.
The Lahore High Court (LHC), on December 27 gave strict orders that pumps will not give fuel to any motorcyclist who is not wearing helmets. The court also warned that violation will not be ignored.
It should be noted that the accidents of motorcyclists have drastically increased due to lack of security measures such as wearing helmet.
Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry also started the initiative. “Brilliant idea, in Lahore implementation of the helmet law, led to a 63 per cent reduction in head injuries, this idea is even better.”
