In order to check mortality in road accidents and create awareness of the use of helmets while riding two-wheelers, the Vashi Regional Transport Officer (RTO) has started a campaign in association with private IT companies.

The campaign has been aligned with the recent directive issued by the Transport Commissioner, mandating the use of helmets while riding two-wheelers.

Deputy RTO Hemangini Patil said that they are raising public awareness among private and IT companies in the city regarding the importance of wearing helmets while riding two-wheelers. She said, "The state has witnessed a steady rise in vehicular accidents, particularly among the youth riding two-wheelers, and the number of fatalities resulting from non-compliance with helmet usage is alarmingly high."

Despite the existing helmet mandate, a significant number of two-wheeler riders continue to neglect this safety precaution. The campaign, which started on Tuesday, will encompass participation from 8 to 10 private companies in Navi Mumbai.

Over the course of the next week, the initiative will be implemented at various locations throughout the city, promoting responsible two-wheeler riding practices and highlighting the importance of helmet usage
