    Now a days bus driver and conductor is telling they have to reach the stop on time. We dont have any other option other than speed. So now they are not allowing people get down easily. Whoever is concern please take care of this issue. we need safety first then ur time.

    This accident happened in front of my relatives house the road leading between bannadaka SKF factory and kersargadde, as per real eyewitnesses the biker fell down upon hitting a dangerous pothole still not repaired bus was exactly behind him when he fell down the bus went over him as driver couldn't do anything all happened in fraction of a second.

    The pothole is big running a length of 20 Meters very hard to see as it's as it's almost invisible from distance as road is steep down .riders please be careful if you are traveling from SKF factory to kersargadde you will get a big pothole in between.

    The road between Kaikamba and Moodbidri is has so many dangerous curves. Very dangerous for overtaking. For two wheelers more dangerous. I wonder why this road is not straightened.

    Speed governors should be installed in these buses , this will avoid rash and negligent driving by these drivers .

    Very sad. May his soul RIP. Roads are terryfying. Big vehicles are a nightmare for two wheelers. Seperate track for two wheelers is the only solution. Unfortunately we have to read such news on everyday. Very bad indeed.

    Many youngsters life los two wheeler or four wheelers accidents. But we have not taken measures to control accidents. All accidents may be different reasons. The roads improvement, speed limit in the vehicles, other things should be properly controlled by implementing rules. Mr Ghadkari heavy penalty also save life if it had been implemented with human touch.
    Almighty may give all strength to the family members to bear the grief and bless them
