Jaipur is a city full of wonders, there are so many things to see, experience and be a part of here that it will overwhelm you. It is undoubtedly one of the most popular places in Rajasthan, yet there's so much more to see and experience in the state. The best part about Rajasthan is its connection to roots, the culture and the upkeep of traditions. Most visitors often end up experiencing the state only at a surface level, without actually indulging in its rich culture.
Road safety is one thing that people of this country seem to blatantly ignore. No matter where you go, you will always find people driving without seatbelts, riding without helmets or paying zero heed to traffic signals. All in all the state of road safety and attention towards traffic rules in this country is abysmal.
Jaipur is no different, people in the city choose to flout traffic rules left, right and centre and to curb this, the state government has introduced changes in the existing traffic rules. Along with this, the authorities will also be giving away free helmets to those who buy a motor-bike in the city.
What's the update?
In a bid to decrease traffic rule violation and as an added safety measure, the Rajasthan government will be giving away free helmets to anyone who purchases a bike after March.
Starting April, if you're buying a bike in Jaipur, you won't need to buy a helmet. The authorities will be giving away free helmets to anyone who purchases a bike in efforts to spread awareness about the dangers of riding without a helmet.
With an aim to bring a crackdown to traffic rule flouting in Jaipur, as well as the entire state of Rajasthan, civic authorities will also be levying hefty fines on those found riding bike without helmets. The revised fine has been set at ₹1,000 for anyone who is found riding with a helmet and it would be implemented after February 13th.
This comes as a measure to ensure that the residents of Jaipur follow traffic rules more ardently. Currently the fine of riding a two-wheeler without helmets is ₹100, which is set to increase ten-folds come February 13th.
If you're in Jaipur and are looking to buy a bike, maybe wait till April and get a free helmet along with it, because if you're found without it, here'll be a huge fine to pay. Wear a helmet, stay safe!
