Karunanidhi goes soft on helmets

Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi on Saturday instructed the officers concerned to ensure that rigorous enforcement of the helmet rule did not pose any hardship to the public.

An official release here said the Chief Minister had received several requests with regard to collection of fines and registering cases for non-compliance of the rule, being enforced in six Corporation areas, including Chennai, from June 1. Having sympathetically considered these pleas, the Chief Minister had stated that wearing helmets as per the court order should be treated only as a necessity to safeguard lives and that its enforcement, in no way, should cause hindrance to the public, the release said.
