From June 20, 2022, those who drive motorcycles, electric two wheelers and tricycles without wearing safety helmets as required will be investigated and punished by Boai public security traffic police in accordance with the law.
Why wear a helmet? Too many bloody lessons tell us that we should wear safety helmets when driving, riding motorcycles and electric bicycles! According to statistics, wearing safety helmets correctly can reduce the death risk of traffic accidents by 60% to 70%, which plays a very important role in protecting life safety.
In order to further promote the normalization of the “one helmet and one belt” security guard action of the Ministry of public security, further improve the safety protection level of motorcycles and electric vehicle drivers and passengers, make every effort to ensure the safety of people’s lives and property, fully realize the “three zero” creation goal, and further strengthen the traffic safety management in rural areas, the public security traffic police brigade of Boai County, in accordance with the unified deployment of the superior public security organs, In combination with the actual activities of building a civilized city, it is decided to comprehensively carry out the action of wearing safety helmets throughout the county from June 20, 2022, to intensively rectify the traffic violations that do not wear safety helmets on the road as required within the jurisdiction, and to punish them according to law! Is the vehicle you drive a non motor vehicle? At present, the country divides electric vehicles into electric bicycles, electric mopeds and electric motorcycles.
The latter two belong to the category of motor vehicles.
Are your electric vehicles non motor vehicles? On September 17, 2018, the Ministry of industry and information technology clearly stated in the letter on the reply to the proposal No.
0527 (Gongjiao post and telecommunications No.
039) of the first meeting of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese people’s Political Consultative Conference that, according to relevant laws and regulations, electric two wheeled vehicles that do not meet the standards of electric bicycles belong to the category of motor vehicles.
So what is the standard of electric bicycle? The most important definition of an electric bicycle is that it must be able to ride on foot.
The mass of the whole vehicle shall not exceed 55kg and the maximum speed shall not exceed 25km/h.
A picture shows you how to distinguish the types of electric vehicles.
The focus is on electric bicycles: wearing safety helmets in a standardized way.
Motor vehicles (two or three wheeled motorcycles, electric light motorcycles, electric motorcycles): wear safety helmets according to law.
According to Article 51 of the road traffic safety law of the people’s Republic of China, when driving a motor vehicle, the driver and passengers shall use safety belts as required, and the motorcycle driver and passengers shall wear safety helmets as required.
From June 20, the Boai public security traffic police will investigate and deal with motorcycles, two – and three wheel electric light motorcycles and electric motorcycle riders who still do not wear safety helmets correctly according to the regulations.
For those who fail to wear safety helmets as required, a warning or a fine of 20 to 50 yuan shall be imposed according to law, and 1 point shall be recorded for the driver’s license; A fine of 500 yuan shall be imposed on those who change the appearance of a motor vehicle and the registered relevant technical data without authorization.
Specific requirements for driving age? The regulations for the implementation of the road traffic safety law of the people’s Republic of China stipulates that driving bicycles and tricycles must be at least 12 years old; Driving electric bicycles and disabled motorized wheelchairs must be at least 16 years old; The age limit for drivers of electric mopeds is 18 to 70 years old; The age limit for electric motorcycle drivers is 18 to 70 years old.
How to select qualified safety helmets? Helmets can be roughly divided into full helmets, half helmets and 3/4 helmets.
The full helmet can protect all parts from the top of the head to the chin, with the best effect.
It is suitable for use in complex traffic environments, but has poor air permeability.
The half helmet is easy to wear and the price is relatively low, but the scope of protection is limited, and the risk of injury to cyclists is still high.
Therefore, half helmets are mostly suitable for short trips and frequent wearing.
The 3/4 helmet has both protection range and breathability, and is suitable for all seasons.
In addition, the CCC certification mark on the certificate must be recognized when purchasing the helmet.
Motorcycle helmets shall pass the compulsory inspection and certification of the national standard gb811-2010 motorcycle occupant helmets.
Bicycle helmets also have corresponding national standards, namely the national standard gb24429-2009 safety requirements and test methods for sports helmet bicycles, skateboards and roller skating sports helmets.
There is no corresponding national standard for electric vehicle helmets.
Consumers can buy motorcycle or bicycle helmets that meet the standard according to their needs.
When users purchase selected helmets, they can identify them with the “CCC” mark pasted on the helmets.
Do not use helmets that have not passed CCC certification.
According to the national standards for motorcycle passenger helmets and CCC certification rules, choose helmets suitable for their head circumference.
Use a soft ruler to circle around the eyebrows and ears on both sides.
The value obtained is the head circumference.
Select the helmet according to the head circumference to ensure that there is a finger gap between the back of the head and the inner shell of the helmet.
After wearing the helmet, two fingers should be accommodated between the buckle and chin.
The helmet is also well worn.
Wear the helmet horizontally without tilting forward or backward.
If the helmet is tilted forward, it will not effectively protect the forehead, and if it is tilted backward, it will block the line of sight.
Always fasten the buckle, otherwise the protection effect is basically zero.
In case of any collision, the helmet must be replaced in time, otherwise there will be potential safety hazards.
Collision test data collision test results of qualified (left) and unqualified (right) helmets penetration test results of qualified (left) and unqualified (right) helmets finally, for their own safety and the expectation of their families, the majority of drivers and passengers must consciously wear helmets and keep the bottom line of life safety.
Riding safety starts with “head”.
