According to sources on the face of it, the new ruling that bans non-ISI helmets is certainly worth celebrating. The average Indian motorcyclist (read commuter) has failed to show an inclination towards spending some money to protect what one would generally assume is a rather important part of the human body. So it’s commendable that the government is stepping in and finally eradicating the option of atrociously cheap ‘roadside’ helmets that cost a few hundred rupees.
After all, injecting heroin into your veins is bad for your well-being, and so is loosely placing a flimsy piece of plastic on your head when travelling at speeds that the human body never evolved to move at. Now it’s easy to scoff at the ISI mark by the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards), but you will be surprised to know that the actual rules that govern the Indian helmet safety standards are not the eyewash you imagine.
Every helmet maker out there knows that making a lighter helmet is desirable, and you know for sure that they would if they could. But there is only a certain point to which you can make a helmet lighter without compromising its ability to protect.
