Delhi Police shares viral video to underline why helmet is your best buddy

Helmets are those protective gears that often get the least amount of importance among riders in everyday life until there is a fear of a heavy fine. As reluctant as one might be towards it, it does come with many benefits and to make sure that the message is loud and clear, authorities like the Delhi Police share occasional videos that show how wearing a helmet can save a life. Literally.

A recent government data shared that road accidents claimed 18 lives every hour across India last year, that is over 1.55 lakh people lost their lives while they were on the go. The report stated that this is the highest number of deaths that have been recorded in any calendar year so far and this should set the alarm bells ringing. Over 3.71 lakh people were injured in road-related incidents last year. Repeated appeals of using protective gears while riding a two-wheeler or wearing seat belts inside a car from officials have often fallen on deaf ears.
