No talking on mobile while driving
Let us tell you that in India, talking on mobile while driving is a legal offense. By doing this an accident can happen at any time. Traffic safety rules say that while driving, your eyes should be on the road and concentration should be on driving. If you get a call while driving, first park the car somewhere after checking the space and then talk on the mobile phone. If this is not done, legal action will be taken against the driver.
Two-wheeler drivers must wear helmets
Along with this, if you are driving a two-wheeler, it is very important to wear a helmet. Traffic rules state that riders of two-wheelers must wear ISI-certified helmets to avoid accidental injuries. If a person drives a vehicle without a helmet, action will be taken against him under Section 129 r/w 177 Motor Vehicles Act.
