    Road is quite steep with a bend, this load lorry should have ideally been allowed only in the night,as Express buses here are driving crazy, other day,my car just missed..with speeding bus, coming right in front..had a narrow escape..Moreover,the road is in total bad shape with broadening of NH Karkala road.All the way with spoiling of nature,old trees brought down.

    All big lorries should be permitted in roads only after 9pm strictly. They are the number one cause of problems on highways. Blocking both lanes slow moving Na aage jaunga na doosron ko aage jaane doonga

    Really?? Brake fail?? Or is it carelessness. The police department should take a list of accidents that are directly attributed to trucks and tippers.
