She praised this road safety initiative and also lauded the earlier efforts of the Patiala Foundation toward promoting Road safety. The two-wheeler users can get their helmets issued from the Helmet Bank and in case, they do not require any then they will have to return the helmet to Helmet Bank, she added. SSP Deepak Pareek said that road safety should be a part of our lifestyle so that what we do as ideal citizens has a positive impact on our children as well. "Wearing a helmet for two-wheelers is like wearing an oxygen mask for a sick person, so not only the driver but also the person sitting behind him should wear a helmet," he said.
