    When Modi government wanted to implement severe punishment for these bus drivers there was an great opposition seen from the bus and lorry drivers. Now government cannot be slave to the gimmicks of these people. There should be suspension of licenses and then jail term as well for negligent driving.

    Since after 4 lane has been opened, accident cases are on a rise, specially our notorious private buses claiming innocent life's of fellow citizen. There is no speed control of lane system been followed and the trucks too are a nuisance, driving at 40 KMPH on the speed lane. Driving wrong side is also yet another concern that is alarming and highway patrol has no control over it, raising the rate of accident to a higher level, than it used to be in the earlier days, while it was dual carriageway.
