No helmet, no petrol
Adilabad: The rule, not to provide petrol to two-wheeler drivers without helmets will come into force in the district from June 2, the State Formation Day. District Collector Jaganmohan took this decision, after an official inquiry revealed that most of the 140 deaths of two-wheeler drivers in 2015-16 were the result of head injuries caused by not using helmet.
Stipulation for two-wheeler drivers comes into effect today
