It's a moneymaker.

Why issue a helmet for the driver when they stack five people on a motorcycle with no helmets.

It is as bad as the seatbelt law for drivers who get fined for not wearing one when there are 20 people piled in the back of their trucks.

I think taxi drivers should make sure that everyone riding with them wear a helmet especially in the traffic mountain roads are equally dangerous, not because of traffic, but because the roads are deeply rutted and nobody maintains them.
