Indian State Introduces ‘No Helmet, No Petrol’ Policy


Statistics from the most acclaimed health organizations indicate that India has been recording the highest number of road accidents in the globe. Government data, on the other hand, shows that four hundred road dispatches occur in India on a single day, with one taking place every four minutes. In addressing the concern which is undoubtedly a public health emergency, state administrators have been tabling various proposals while initiating some schemes to both raise awareness and limit accident numbers. The latest to conform to this approach is the “no helmet, no petrol” principle, which was recently brought forth by the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. It’s quite an invaluable approach considering the region appears to be the most affected with regard to road dispatches, according to provisional police data.
