It has been decided to temporarily suspend regulations banning the use of motorcycle helmets which cover the face of the riders.
 
Police Media Spokesperson, SSP Ajith Rohana noted that they had received complaints charging that merchants were exploiting this rule to sell helmets at exorbitant prices.
 
The police earlier took steps to ban the use of full face helmets as thieves were taking advantage of these helmets to carry out robberies and also due to the increase in the number of accidents caused by the decrease in visibility of the visors in the helmet.
