The helmets will be designed keeping in mind the humid weather and the heavy weight of the existing helmets, which has emerged as the prime reason for two-wheeler riders to avoid wearing helmets. According to AIIMS, 27 <g data-gr-id="11">per cent</g> of deaths resulting from road accidents <g data-gr-id="12">are</g> caused because drivers and pillion riders do not wear helmets.
