Sources in the city police said drive would continue till 100% compliance is achieved
The city traffic police will be strictly implementing the helmet rule on motorcycle riders and the pillion riders from Monday.
Officials, who ride two-wheelers to government offices without wearing helmets, will be marked absent, says a circular issued by collector Dr T Prabhushankar.
The incident had irked the public and social activists alike. Vellore resident Ganesh said the top district officer and public representatives had humiliated the motorists.
The new rules state that the speed of a motorcycle with a child up to the age of four years being carried on the pillion will not be more than 40 kmph.
The new rules limit the speed of two-wheelers carrying a child below the age of four to 40 km/hr. Also, children must wear a safety vest that securely attaches them to the driver.
