Ban against full face helmet ban further extended
The stay order issued by the Appeal Court on implementing the full face helmet ban has been extended until July 14th.
Earlier, the Appeal Court had issued a stay order preventing the implementation of full face helmet ban until July 2nd.
However, the order has been extended when the case was taken up for hearing today.
The full face helmet ban had to be implemented with effect from April 2nd.
Later, two persons filed a petition with the Appeal Court on March 31st.
The petitioners stated in their appeal that they would be safer by wearing full face helmets, therefore the ban to wear full face helmets have caused injustice to them.
