  1. This NH66 from Trashi to Mangalore is the most hazardous
    road designed and being constructed from donkey’s years
    with no completion in sight!

    There are no proper exits or entry roads designed for every
    town on NH66, and no pedestrian crossings foreseen – and
    the those who use this NH66 have to take risks – that
    involves death most of the time.

    Lorries and buses are plying on the wrong side of the road
    – that is on the fast lane at all times – which is not normal
    in any part of the world – Buses and Lorries must be made
    to drive only on the left side of the NH66. The fast lane
    must be left open for cars and motorbikes only.

    Secondly parking of lorries and buses and as well cars on the
    NH66 and on the main roads must be prohibited, as they are
    a hazard for oncoming traffic. The Government must build
    Car Parking Buildings and Open Lots for Lorries and Buses
    and charge them a hourly, daily, or monthly fee. This is
    done in all countries in the world. Why don’t our CM and PM
    learn something after visiting outside of India on their trips.

    Why can’t the Karnataka Transport Dept. look into this
    and do something to avoid loss of life and property.
