Taking cognizance of the alarming number of deadly road accidents that occur every year, the government is Karnataka is planning to ban pillion riders on two-wheelers that possess engine capacity up to 100 cc.
The ban, however, will not affect vehicles already in use. In turn, manufacturers henceforth will have to make sure that two wheelers with engine capacity up to 100 cc will be able to seat just one person.
Out of all road accidents that occur on the roads of India, the maximum numbers of victims suffer on two-wheelers. This move will definitely help reduce such accidents, especially in cities like Bengaluru where two-wheeler traffic dominates the roads.
