Speed is the cause for all such hazards. We ca not only blame the the heavy vehicles some times even the people travelling in the moped take a sudden diversion without any indicator which will be uncontrollable and prone to accidents

The Udupi rote buses are Demons and cost life of so many in the accidents.It is not the fault of the drivers it the bus owners who pressurize them. But poor thing the father and son both lost life who is the cause ?

The private buses travelling in the Padudibri-Karkala route are very rash . They act like the owners of the road they keep on honking for way and Hit the vehicles. The traffic patrolling must be strict and cancel the licence of theses drivers only then they will learn the value of innocent lives.
