    Why this Kolaveri D? Trying to improve collection and speed thrills but kills. Not only dangerous for passengers but also for two wheeler riders, pedestrians and etc. Abolish the private bus mafia. It will be safe to travel in the twin districts of DK and Udupi.

    First of all before controlling the bus drivers it very important to control their owners and bus association.

    These owners press the drivers for more collection. Otherwise they may loose the job. That what I heard.

    Suspend the license and route permit for atleast for one year and put the driver and bus company in black list.

    There more good suggestions, but our RTO,ADMINISTRATION, TRAFFIC DEPARTMENT are helpless because of politicians. If politicians decide regarding this bus problems, this can control in only one day.

    Most of these PVT bus companies are owned by politicians or people very well connected with politicians. So, nothing will happen

    This not a Lost Control of the Bus....Bottom Line is .. this is a No CONTROL on Bus drivers/or on heavy vehicles by Traffic Rules enforcements such as speeding, talking at work,..Most of them have high BP while driving. ..etc..They play on others Lives..
    NO way.. Lost control.. because most of the Mangalore Buses are relatively new, and very low mileage
