Observing that there was a "manifold rise" in instances of bikers and pillion riders not sporting helmets, the notification said, "Immediate and stringent action needs to be taken in accordance with law, to have greater deterrence and for prevention of the same."

Launching a road safety initiative "Safe Drive Save Life", the West Bengal Chief Minister on Friday had expressed alarm over rising accident deaths and called for strict adherence to traffic laws.
