In a Twitter post, Deputy Commissioner Rawalpindi Rawalpindi Dr Umar Jahangir said that fueling stations in the city have been directed not to refuel the motorcyclists not wearing helmets.

Hours later, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry hailed the  announcement as "brilliant idea" which he thinks is even better than implementation of helmet law that led to 63 percent reduction in head injuries.
