Tripura Transport Minister Sushanta Chowdhury took a proactive step on June 14 by distributing free helmets across the state, aiming to curb the alarming rise in fatal road accidents. With road safety at the forefront of public concern, Chowdhury’s initiative seeks to mitigate the severe head injuries often suffered by accident victims who are frequently found without proper headgear.

The minister, accompanied by local officials and safety advocates, emphasized the critical importance of wearing helmets to safeguard lives on Tripura’s roads.

Speaking at the helmet distribution event, Chowdhury reiterated the government’s commitment to promoting road safety awareness and ensuring compliance with safety measures. He urged residents to prioritize their safety and encouraged all motorcyclists to wear helmets consistently while riding.

The free helmet distribution initiative received positive responses from the local community, with residents appreciating the government’s proactive approach to addressing road safety concerns. Several beneficiaries expressed gratitude for the opportunity to receive helmets, acknowledging the importance of such initiatives in preventing tragic accidents.

Chowdhury also announced plans for further road safety campaigns and initiatives aimed at raising awareness about the importance of adhering to traffic rules and safety protocols. He stressed the need for collective efforts from both authorities and citizens to create safer road conditions across Tripura.

The distribution of free helmets by Transport Minister Sushanta Chowdhury marks a significant step towards reducing road accident fatalities in Tripura.
