Helmet awareness rally taken out
Today, to sensitise Sivakasi bike riders to the need for wearing helmets, an awareness rally was taken out from Satchiyapuram. Since the High Court made it mandatory to wear helmets from July 1, the district police has stepped up awareness campaigns. Wearing helmets, campaigners, including Sivakasi Thala Fans, police personnel and other volunteers took out the rally, which was flagged off from Satchiyapuram. Two-wheelers with helmets could reduce fatal risks on roads. The campaigners carried placards, which appealed to two-wheeler riders to "ensure safe driving with helmets to prevent fatal accident" and "ride bikes by using helmets will save your lives".
