Don't Use Helmet Aged More than 5 Years

1. Malaysia Transport minister, Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat today is really anxiety about helmet that has been used more than 5 years. He released the statment due to the quality of aging helmets are doubtful and usually the lifespan of the helmet is just 5 years.

“Bahan topi keledar yang melebihi lima tahun mungkin sudah merosot, ini berasaskan kepada hasil kajian baik dari pihak MIROS (Institut Keselamatan Jalan Raya) atau badan antarabangsa,” katanya kepada pemberita di sini hari ini.

2. I wonder since when MIROS has this piece of information. The helmet research is still on going and the results are still long way to get. Hmm.

3. He also said something about the helmet must follow the standard from SIRIM. Yeah I think all the helmet at the market at the moment follow the standard from SIRIM. Is there none?

Beliau berkata kementeriannya telah mendapatkan kerjasama daripada Kementerian Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna dan Kastam Diraja Malaysia bagi mempastikan barangan yang dipasarkan khususnya topi keledar menepati spesifikasi piawaian yang telah ditetapkan.

“Kita nak pastikan bahawa apa yang dipasarkan adalah barangan yang menepati spesifikasi piawaian dan topi keledar pun ada spesifikasi piawaianannya,” katanya.
