    Our traffic police department does not punish the idiots who use high beam lights unnecessarily.
    High beam lights causes temporary blindness which results in fatal accidents. Must ban using high beam lights unnecessary. RIP

    Sad. I regularly travel by this road and have noticed that most of such accidents are caused by rash overtaking. Especially the KSRTC sarige buses, they overtake aggressively, even at curves, forcing oncoming vehicles off the road. Zero concern for other commuters. If you see one of these buses coming towards you, just slow down and give way to them.

    I àgree with you as well. The way these buses are driven, there is no way any driver can control them. They are driven horrifically and it is very unfortunate that no one does anything about this. Daiji World, a request to you. You should allow your readers to tag relevant people and departments, so that they know the oublic opinion.
