BHOPAL: The order of imposing fine on helmetless pillion rider is yet to be implemented in Bhopal. The traffic police have so far kept away from penalising helmetless pillion riders.
Cops are now busy spreading awareness on the new rule that will make them shell money for not wearing helmet even if they are riding pillion.
Over 1500 commuters are being told about it in a day on all the squares across the city. After the information drive the police will start taking fine for helmetless pillion ride.
The helmetless riders if are stopped and fined, they are also told to ensure the pillion rider is also wearing helmet else fine will be imposed. According to additional superintendent of police (ASP) Pradeep Singh Chouhan the rule is there and we will implement it soon.
The residents are being informed about it as they do not know it. After we are assured that the information is passed on to the residents by and large the fine will be imposed, he said.
