... met (with) rules still hanging.

The much debated 'Helmet Rule' is becoming funny now. While most other cities in India make helmets compulsory, Karnataka has been 'debating' this for a while now. This debate is well over a decade old now, I think.

Recently, the state government (again) introduced a law making helmets compulsory for both riders and pillion. However, the opposition has wondered why we need helmets when traffic moves at a snail's pace, thus slowing down the passing of the rule. While googling, I discovered that there is also actually a campaign AGAINST helmets! Can't people find a real cause for a change?
