  1. Accidents and serial accidents are heard of almost every day. Mangalore and for that matter Dakshina Kanada used to be peaceful places devoid of motor accidents. In recent years with the increase in the number of vehicles it is no more a pleasure to drive in the crowded road and streets. However careful one may be there is always the the other unforeseen factor of reckless driving by some which are the main causes for the increase in the number of accidents.
