Illegal half-shell Helmet

Posted by Joshua |

A few road safety actions have been implemented such as compulsory rear seat belt usage and half-shell helmets are banned for motorcyclist starting from January 2009.



Imagine those big boy Harley Davidson owners riding theirs big toys with lame and unfashionable helmets or full face helmets. XD

This morning I was in Federal Highway heading to work then I saw a young Punjabi riding on a motorcycle without his helmet. It’s on busy highway! What is he thinking? Ain’t that dangerous to maneuvering motor without helmet?



I also saw some “Haji” riding motorcycle without helmet for the reason of they are wearing Serban. This so called Turban and Serban made out of steel or something, or it’s legal for them?



Here I would like to propose an idea of having some revision of the helmet to carry out so that every motorcyclist can wear helmet.


Design the helmet a bit bigger to allow everyone can wear helmet.



If let say our Road Safety Department director-general Datuk Suret Singh planing to ride a motorcycle, do you think he will wear a helmet?



XD Happy Weekend everyone!
