Puducherry: Puducherry Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi led a special drive on road safety on the busy Puducherry-Villupuram main road on Sunday and requested motorists to use helmet.
During the campaign, Bedi asked a man, who was driving a motorcycle with his wife and two children riding pillion, that ‘such a violation of traffic rules will not be tolerated’. She also spotted an overcrowded auto-rickshaw and warned its driver, besides asking some passengers to get off.
When there’s no culture of wearing a helmet in Puducherry and its CM keeps stalling enforcement & every 3rd day there’s a fatal accident, due to non wearing of a helmet,where does one begin?Giveup or take it in one’s own hands as well,alongside challenging enforcement agencies? pic.twitter.com/VQAUbYgUdU
