A protest was held opposite the clock-tower in Ratnapura against the ban on full face helmets. The protestors argued that full-face helmets give protection to motorcyclists.

The ban has been temporarily halted following a petition filed at the Court of Appeal which has stopped police from enforcing the order until April 28. The stay was issued after courts considered a petition filed by two civilians.

The lawyers of the petitioners  argued before the courts that full-faced helmets provide better safety for motor cyclists.
