New Safety Rules For Motorcycle By Centre
The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways notified the Central Motor Vehicles (seventh amendment) Rules 2020 and accordingly issued a gazette notification amending the Central Motor Vehicles Rules 1989.
As per the amended rules, manufacturers of two-wheelers having a provision for a pillion rider should ensure handholds on the side of the motorcycle or behind the driver seat and should comply with the requirements specified in the rules.
Besides providing footrests for pillion riders on both sides of the vehicle, manufacturers should provide protective devices covering half of the rear wheel to prevent the clothes of the person sitting on the pillion getting entangled in it.
Apart from this, the ministry has also issued guidelines for putting lighter containers in the bike. The length of this container is 550 mm, width 510 ml and height shall not exceed 500 mm. If the container is placed at the place of the previous ride, only the driver will be approved.
The Centre said the footrests of two-wheelers manufactured from 1 January 2022 should comply with the requirements specified in Automotive Industry Standards (AIS) till the corresponding BIS specifications are notified under the Bureau of Indian Standards Act.
