Cops no worry for lawbreaking bikers
As each day goes by, they continue to break the law with no fear of death in an accident or prosecution by the authorities.
The high number of motorcyclists and their pillion riders who flout the law could be considered a national embarrassment that exposes the toothlessness of the police at the most basic level.
The Road Traffic Act
Section 43 D (1) Every person shall, at all times while driving, or riding on a motorcycle, wear a protective helmet of the prescribed shape, quality, construction or standard.
