From June 1, bike riders in Noida and Greater Noida will not be able to refuel at filling stations if they are found riding without headgears.
In a bit to encourage road safety, the district administration made the announcement on Tuesday. District Magistrate Brajest Narain Singh held a meeting with owners of the filling stations where he said the order must be implemented in the two cities and later it would also be rolled out in rural areas of Gautam Buddh Nagar.
Addressing the fuel station owners, Singh said, “Those who reach your fuel stations without a helmet should be told that they will only get fuel if they wear a helmet. This practice will be implemented from June 1 in Noida and Greater Noida cities initially.”
Singh, who was accompanied by District Police Chief Vaibhav Krishna, said the initiative would later be rolled out in rural areas of Gautam Buddh Nagar after receiving inputs and feedback from the stakeholders.
