Gandhinagar: The Gujarat government on Tuesday reduced fine amounts for breaking traffic rules, stipulated in the new Motor Vehicles Act passed recently.
Under the new rules, riding without a helmet would attract a fine of Rs 1,000. The Gujarat government said on Tuesday that it would reduce the fine amount to half. Same is the case with driving a four-wheeler without wearing a seat-belt. The penalty for driving without a licence has been brought down from Rs 5,000, as suggested by the new act, to Rs 2000 for two-wheelers and Rs 3,000 for four-wheelers.

Wearing helmet is now optional in Gujarat cities, govt cites 'angry citizens' as reason

The Gujarat government has now made it optional to wear a helmet while riding a two-wheeler in urban areas of the state.

The decision was taken in a cabinet meeting and was made public by Transport Minister R C Faldu.

To be precise, wearing helmets will be optional in municipal corporations and within municipality limits. A person will still need to wear it when heading outside city limits, state highways and national highways.

So that government thinks that accidents never happen inside cities?? This is rubbish, illogical decision, why don't they remove ban from alcohol then if they care so much for some angry fool citizens.
