Motor Vehicle Rules For Two Wheeler: Seeing the feature image of this news, you must have understood how ‘perky’ two-wheelers are. Such grossly careless people do not shy away from risking children and other people’s lives to enjoy the car ride on the bike. But now the government has made a mood to make strict rules for these people.

It is reported that strict rules and regulations may come soon for those who drive with children on two-wheelers. The Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways is preparing to change the rules for the safety of children. It has been said that they will be made more strict than before so that the two-wheeler drivers and the children travelling on it are safer.

New Motor Vehicle Rules For Two Wheeler

According to the English newspaper The Times of India, the government has proposed strict rules and regulations in the Motor Vehicle Act regarding the placement of children on a two-wheeler. The report of the newspaper says that soon the government can also implement them. Among these new proposals are,

The speed limit of two-wheelers such as bikes, scooters, scooters etc., should not exceed 40 kmph while carrying a child up to the age of 4 years on a motorcycle.

The two-wheeler driver shall wear a crash helmet to the rear-seated child between 9 months and four years. That means two-wheelers along with pillion and children will all have to wear helmets.

According to the Ministry, the motorcycle driver shall ensure that children below four years of age use a safety harness to keep them tied on the bike or scooter.

In the draft notification issued by the Ministry for changes in the Central Motor Vehicle Rules, a provision has been made for a fine of Rs 1,000 and suspension of license for three months for those who do not follow this rule.

What is this safety harness?

A safety harness is a method designed to keep children safe while travelling on vehicles. You must have seen that special seats that can be fixed with the seat come in cars. Their cushions and safety belts are such that they do not face any problems during the journey. If something untoward happens, their safety should be maintained.

Like cars, there are safety harnesses for two-wheelers too. Their safety harness is like a jacket worn by a child. Its size can be adjusted. This safety harness works to keep the child tied. Safety jackets have laces that serve to keep them attached to the shoulders of the driver. At the same time, other features, including child lock, are provided for the safety of children in the car.
