scotter 03As China's new traffic policy that makes wearing helmets compulsory for electric scooter riders comes into effect on June 1, the price of helmets is expected to rise alongside a helmet supply shortage in the short term.
 

Helmets which were sold for 30 yuan ($4.22) before April are now sold at prices higher than 80 yuan.
 

The helmet price increase began after the Chinese Ministry of Public Security on April 21 launched the campaign "one helmet, one belt," which will take effect on June 1, aiming to protect people on the roads by mandating scooter riders to wear helmets and car drivers to fasten their seatbelt.
 

China already had a policy requiring motorcyclists to wear helmets, but this is the first time Chinese authorities have forced electric scooter riders to follow suit.

According to official data, as of June 2019, there were nearly 250 million electric scooters in China. Taking unregistered scooters into account, that number could be as high as 300 million.
 

头盔火了!骑电车不戴头盔将被罚款

自2020年6月1日起,全国将开展“一盔一带” 安全守护行动。行动期间,公安交管部门将加强执法管理,依法查纠摩托车、电动自行车骑乘人员不佩戴安全头盔以及汽车驾乘人员不使用安全带行为。
 

几乎一夜之间,原本乏人问津的安全头盔成为“香饽饽”——无论线下实体店还是上线网购平台,头盔价格普遍上涨,甚至出现“一盔难求”的现象。微博、朋友圈等社交平台,涉及头盔的话题热度居高不下。
 

据统计,摩托车、电动自行车、小汽车是导致交通事故死亡人数最多的车辆。
 

摩托车、电动自行车驾乘人员死亡事故中,约80%为颅脑损伤致死;汽车交通事故中,因为不系安全带被甩出车外造成伤亡的事故比比皆是。
 

有关研究表明,正确佩戴安全头盔、规范使用安全带能够将交通事故死亡风险降低60%至70%。
 

需要注意的是,此次行动还将针对后排安全带展开督查。6月1日专项行动开始后,交警对后排不系安全带将一律严查,而根据《道路交通安全法》可处以200元罚款。
 

随后,江苏、云南、湖北、陕西、河南等多地开始行动,骑摩托车/电动车不戴安全头盔,开车不使用安全带将会被严查,甚至处罚。而生产和销售的头盔也必须满足国家相关的标准。
