Uppinangady, Mar 3: The driver of a private bus damaged two shops, a few two-wheeler vehicles and a car parked at the parking lot of the Uppinangady bus stand on Saturday, March 2, after he recklessly took a reverse of the vehicle he was driving in the evening.

The driver carelessly reversed the bus as it crossed the vehicle parking area and rammed into a commercial building including a few shops.

As a result, Nagaraj Bhat's sweet and soft drink shop as well as Anil Kumar's shop were damaged. The shelves of the shop were also damaged along with the sugarcane milling machine.

Three or four two-wheelers and a car also got damaged as this private bus crossed the parking area of the vehicles.

    This is a pure case of DUI and in this case the government needs to be blamed for encouraging liquor sale. What is the difference if liquor is legal and and hallucinating drugs are illegal? Both are bad for health and their families, and both can cause serious losses, like in this case. BUT the Karnataka government wants revenue at any cost!

    Fellow must be arrested immediately and should have made a alcohol test .Cancel his driving licence for ever.And make him to pay the loss.Without hard punishment these people will never learn.Was he sleeping or under drugs?Otherwise it is impossible to take the bus reverse as he has done.What a luck there were no persons injured or anyone died.

    If he can't take reverse, how he got driving license??? Nobody can control our Dk and UDUPI private bus owners and drivers. All private buses must run under KSRTC ,like in Delhi all private buses are under DELHI TRANSPORT CORPORATION ( DTC). I think we can control this problems.
