    Pick up trucks, tippers are not following the rules properly and creating ruckus in the road, We should have stringent rules to control these kind of incidents.

    After the highways became 4 lane instead of coming down the incidences of accidents are on the rise I dont know why? In rainy season there is a real risk of skidding and we must all drive very slow Please take care

    Hit and run culprits must be treated in the same manner as rapists and acid throwers.... They have no remorse or humanity,,,, When we do not care for life around we have no right to lead a free life....
