Gujarat government once again made changes in the traffic rules. It has relaxed rule of compulsory helmet in the case of cities. Now its upto you whether you use helmet ior not in the cities and areas covered by nagarpalikas. But if you are on highway on your two wheelers then helmet is must. Otherwise you will be fined as per the law.
The announcement to make helmet voluntary was today announced by Road Transport minister R C Faldu. He said that the decision was taken at the meeting of the cabinet today. He said that it was compulsory as per the rules but government decided to make this relaxation considering stiff opposition from people.
Gujarat was the first state to reduce amount of the fine and also to extend the date of implementation of the amended rules.
