KHAMMAM: Khammam assistant police commissioner S Ramesh said that about 96 motor cyclists were killed in road accidents in the commissionerate limits last year for not wearing helmets.
Laying stress on wearing of helmets, he said that thousands of fatalities can be averted if all two-wheeler drivers wear helmets. He said that from around 732 road mishaps, 232 persons lost their lives in which 96 deaths were for being without helmets.
“The police department wants to make the year 2021 an accident and death-free one. Cooperation of people by way of following road-safety measures will help achieve it”, he said.
Decrying the tendency of people to change vehicle numbers other than the one approved by the road transport authority, he said stern action will be taken against all such persons. He warned of criminal cases and jail against those moving around without the original RTA allotted numbers.
The police are monitoring such numberless vehicles through CCTV footages….
