Mangaluru: Deaths in road mishaps, esp., two-wheeler-riders, seem to be part of the daily routine.
Speeding of four-wheelers is normally blamed for mishaps. But many a time, bike-riders themselves are responsible for their doom.
Overtaking from the left hand side of the vehicles ahead of them, going to the wrong side of the lane at bends, overtaking without checking if any vehicles are approaching from the opposite side etc. have been the causes of the most of the mishaps.
Pedestrians lose their lives very often, for no fault of theirs, because of reckless driving on the part of bike-riders and drivers of four-wheelers.
Three lives were lost in the twin district owing to negligent driving on Monday. In Bantwal taluk, Moosa Beary (63) was knocked down by a bike, when he was trying to cross the road at Ashwath Nagar or Peruvayi-Manila road on Sunday. He was hospitalized in Mangaluru, but succumbed to the injuries on Monday.
