programmes to prevent road accidents and encourage use of helmets among
motorcycle drivers.

As a part of the campaign launched few days ago, Police Super Mizanur

‘No helmet, no petrol’ inscriptions at Parjatan Motel and other areas of the
city.

On the occasions, the Police Super said, “The ‘No helmet-no-petrol’
programme will continue till motorcycle drivers of the district get 100
percent success in using helmets on their heads to become aware of fatal
consequences of not wearing helmets.”

“Along with this, papers and documents of heavy and slow-paced vehicles are

and reduce the amount of casualties and damages,” he said adding that none
would be spared anymore for violation of traffic rules in future.
