One hand on the bars, one helmet (not worn) between four and nobody seems to be looking at the road. What could possibly go wrong?

Bikers in Mumbai will now have to swear an oath to be good boys and girls!  Before a driving licence is issued, they must sign an indemnity bond promising to abide by motor vehicle rules and regulations.

Transport Minister Diwakar Raote said “The thought to get indemnity bonds signed by bikers came to me after seeing many of them riding without helmets. Bikers violate rules more frequently than drivers of four-wheelers and other vehicles,” adding the department would increase the penalty for traffic violations soon. “We don’t want to earn money for the government through penalties, but we want to decrease violations by hiking the penalty.”
