On June 1st Central Government (The Ministry Of Road Transport And Highways) has banned the non-ISI helmets but why?
They are claiming by there are more than 56,000 accidents happens because of non-ISI helmets.
Most of the brands like Axor, LS2, AGV are DOT, ECE certified and they are used for racing too and they have the international standards for it too.
These helmets brands are more popular than the ISI-certified brands.
Most bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts prefer only these types of helmets because of safety features. Am not blaming the ISI-certified helmets but DOT and ECE certified are more preferred by all.
If the person rides using the other certified helmets rather then ISI certified means they can be fined from 500 rupees to 5000 rupees accordingly, but if you ride without helmet only 100 just joking 😜.
If a seller sells an non-ISI-certified helmets means they will be fined up to 5 lakhs and jail time can be up to 2 years.
Jokes apart, I always used to prefer DOT, ECE certified helmets because of safety. have a look at my helmet too.
I don't know-how, these brands have passed several tests while manufacturing, and even they have tested with various cases. But why those are not ISI certified?
Let's wait until there are further updates.
