    Route 66 (NH 17) from Trasi-Gangulli junction to Mallikatte is a dangerous slope with heavy traffic along this national highway.

    I am familiar to this road/ neighborhood. As road has a turn to Movadi, Devalli; the turn is accident-prone.

    9 school children were dead due to accident at same place three years ago. Then an auto rickshaw accident.

    Traffic police should monitor this segment of the road more closely to smooth en road traffic. Road need to be widened...

    Condolences to the family of Sukumar Devadiga.
