  1. Thank God that Rickshaw was carrying only 7 children. Almost I guess most of the Rickshaws carry at least 12 children including one sitting next to driver. Some time back, after the accident at Ulaibettu, Traffic Police were making sudden rides near school gates to catch the Culprit Drivers. It was a show for a short time. Now no one cares. Public eyes will open only when major accident takes place with many deaths. My kind request with DCP Uma Prashanth and ACP Manjunath Shetty to start Random Traffic Rides near School Gates in the morning time to save the life of Innocent Children. Mrs Prashanth and Mr Shetty, God will Bless your Children when You care for other Little Children. Thanks to all Traffic Police, whom I Respect very much.
