The Madhya Pradesh high court on Thursday gave the state government two more weeks to effectively implement the rule that makes wearing helmets compulsory while riding two-wheelers.

The counsel of the state government submitted that “if the hearing of the petitions is deferred for two weeks significant improvement will be noticed within that time”.

“The police department will take strict action against the law-breakers — as they show no respect for law nor fear the law and the police will proceed against them by way of appropriate action,” the government counsel said.

The court took on record a report filed by the state about the action it took to educate the people about wearing helmets while riding two-wheelers. The court deferred the hearing till December 18 next.
