    Turbo diesel Truck engines can have a "runaway diesel phenomenon" the truck cannot be controlled or stopped. The cops have to check it. If it is the case then nothing can be helped. The police should look into this matter.

    The corrupt traffic cops only target 2 wheelers for pillion helmet. They take bribe from transporters, private bus mafia. I have never seen these Cops checking or stopping private bus or trucks.

    If our traffic Police do their duty honestly, we can control this. Drivers licence, insurance records, conditions of vehicles, controlling the speed, no one is doing. Jaise Raja, Vaise Praja.
