HYDERABAD: Under some pretexts, two-wheeler drivers are not keen on having a helmet on their heads everyday. They skip wearing it, citing quick errands to damage to their hairstyle. A few others have gone a step ahead and stated that humidity is putting pokes into their wish to wear a helmet. Echoing the general view,  Venkanna, a call centre employee from Secunderabad, said, “We have been using helmet for a long-distance travel. However, when it comes to a 10 minute journey, we go without it.”

There are other groups who blame it on the humidity and skip wearing a helmet. For this section, the heat generated inside the helmet is unbearable. “I often ask my friend to drive me during the summers as I cannot stand the heat on the head,” said Titto George, an IT professional.  “Many people are ignorant about the benefits of wearing a helmet. Then there are others who are arrogant. In fact, they are waiting for the inevitable to happen,” said Abhishek Bharti, a working professional in the city.

 

However, there a handful of parents, who have made it point to catch their children young when it comes to helmets. “The youth must know the importance of protective gears while on the road. I remind my son every day to wear a helmet. In fact, I myself carry one when we go together,” said Mahendiran, an army personnel.
