A nine-year-old boy has been spending his leisure time campaigning for helmet use on the roads of Vijayawada, India, reports The News Minute.

T Jayachandra Prasad has been spreading the message by cycling with a “Use Your Helmet” signboard. His passion for road safety has now been recognized by Police Commissioner Gautam Sawang who presented him with a new bicycle at a recent “Run for Unity” to commemorate the 142nd birth anniversary of India’s “Iron Man”, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
