Police advise motorcyclists and pillion riders to wear authorized helmets without tinted visors enabling better identification from today.

A statement issued by the Police Headquarters today stated that laws pertaining to motorcycle helmets are included in the special gazette notification while these regulations have been prepared by the relevant minister under clause 158 (2) and 237 of the Motor Traffic Act.

They state that while the chin strap of an authorized helmet provides protection for the motorcycle rider and the passenger, the face area of the helmet should remain open for clear identification of the person wearing it.

The helmet should not contain any parts or extensions which conceal or distort any part of the face of the rider.

Furthermore the visor of the helmet should not be tinted or painted with any colour.
