    I live in Bangalore (Semi urban area).....I see the vehicles going on the road (Although less before lock down). Even two wheelers are riding without helmet. I doubt that enough policing is there in Bangalore or not. I see the news o sizing vehicles in Mangalore. If this is the real case in Karnataka, I can seize at least 1000 vehicles if iI am given the power to do so. That too not in the city. In J.P Nagar 9th phase. other areas may not be better than this for sure.
