    One appeal to Mangaloreans probably in vain - please drive responsibly. Mangalore's economy is dependent on the economy generated by educational institutions primarily medical/dental/nursing colleges. Imagine parents not sending kids to Mangalore for education and it can have major impact on our economy. I know, ideally this advice should be given to every driver on Indian roads but given Mangalore's economic sustenance, keeping them alive even if they are bad drivers is in our interest. Bangalore is IT, Mangalore is education/knowledge and banking to an extent.

    Highway ?? Looks like a one way by lane, hardly enough for one truck to pass through.
