    It is sad to note such a ghastly accident. It is not stated as what was the actual cause of the accident. All that can now be said is that it is an accident.

    I join several other people in offering my sincere sympathies to the members of the bereaved families.

    It's unfortunate that such an accident took place on a clear two way highway, but I think there is a diversion somewhere after the toll gate which might be the accident spot!

    The Traffic Authorities here are more bothered about busses not stopping at the stop mentioned. Worried about parking. No value is given for continuous monitoring of traffic. No speed breakers at the required spot.

    how can they put speed breakers on highways,we cant blame police for each and everything , overspeeding in a wrong side this s the fault of the driver not the police department.
