Sonam Kapoor to back helmet drive

Sonam Kapoor is likely to join the group of celebs who’ve supported traffic safety initiatives in Delhi. She’s likely to join Delhi Traffic Police in advising two-wheeler drivers to put on helmets and strap them correctly while driving.

Sources in Delhi Traffic Police affirmed that she will be helping cops in an awareness plan on Saturday. As per police officials, helmets are crucial for both driver and pillion rider as they’re equally at risk when on the highway. Hospital officials also report that the extent of head trauma is more in females riding pillion than males riding a two-wheeler.

The girl sitting in the rear has nothing to hold on to unlike the driver who drives the motorcycle or scooter. By exempting ladies from putting on helmets, they’re as an outcome exposed to a higher risk of head trauma, said officials.
