Bhubaneswar: “No Helmet No Petrol” if you drive into filling stations with your two wheeler in Cuttack. After implementing the ‘No Helmet No Petrol’ in Capital city of Bhubaneswar and across Khurdha district, this rule has been extended to Cuttack district as well.
The rule comes into effect from today in Cuttack where the bikers will be refused fuel without wearing helmets. It may be recalled that on June 13, Bhubaneswar-Cuttack Commissioner of Police YB Khurania held a meeting with officials of oil companies and petrol pump owners asking them not to sell petrol to bikers not wearing helmets.
In the meantime before implementation of the rule Bhubaneswar-Cuttack Police Commissionerate had held awareness drives to educate the mass on the use of helmets while driving.
