The concrete mixing truck looks quite old . Sometimes we cannot take action on driver alone , he just works on the basis of salary. The company responsible to see to the maintenance of the vehicle . Udupi bus forget they are the masters of the roads. We wish the speedy recovery of the injured people in the bus.
