A good number of motorcyclists are seen using motorcycle helmets fixed with dark glass covering their full face like a mask especially during summer and sometime the pillion riders also use the same type of helmet. This is risky from the security point of view because a criminal or terrorist can easily hide his face behind the dark glass of the motorcycle helmet and can approach his target or escape after committing the crime unidentified. Surprisingly this has not been noted neither by the interior ministry nor provincial home departments.

Actually this was the duty of the police and law enforcing agencies to point out to the government and check. It is suggested that use of motorcycle helmets fixed with dark glasses covering full face of the motorcyclists should be banned in the interest of public security and safety. However, they can use normal dark spectacles or proper motorcycle glasses covering eyes only.
