Kamal Deep said that anyone riding a two-wheeler was prone to getting seriously injured in the absence of helmets. "And wearing helmets is not enough; these need to be fastened properly too," he added.
The message was given during a rally organised to create awareness about wearing helmets on the second day of the Chandigarh Police Week.
Inspector general of police (IGP) RP Upadhyaya said, "Through this rally, if we are able to create awareness and save even one life, the purpose of the entire exercise is achieved." Wing Commander CS Grewal (retd), chief traffic marshal, said, "Wearing a helmet is not important only for men. Head injury is a major cause of death in two-wheeler accidents."
