Puttur, June 20, 2016: It is a regular sight in Puttur where passengers alight buses in the middle of the road; this has been the cause of traffic jams and accidents and so on.
Even after the construction of a modern bus terminal, buses stopped on the road itself and only a few of them stop at the bus terminal. Sources say that the problem has arisen due to the unhealthy competition between KSRTC and private buses.
Several buses stopping on the road has caused a lot of problem and the public opine that the only solution to the problem was to have traffic police at the junctions. The bus crew are un-cooperative and look only for the easy way, flouting all regulations.
