  1. If one can avoid, Nanthoor Junction, he or she is wise and safe.

    Wonder why the Transport Dept, inspite of earning so much of revenue
    from vehicle owners, fail to make roads and junction safe. Traffic
    lights, cameras, and over-speeding cameras must be installed on all
    major roads, to ensure safety and smooth movement of traffic. It’s
    a mess right now at this and other junctions in Mangalore, where
    no one has the ethics or education to give priority to others or to
    move ahead with priority. Truck drivers are the worst, irresponsible
    and always pressed for time – Fish will rot was the remark of the
    truck driver – only because perishable food is still transported in
    India in a container or a lorry without refrigeration. That’s how

  2. Nanthur junction is a death trap. Any amountvof caution is not sufficient. Some cab drivers drive too rash ignoring big vehicles who come at super speed as it is the NH 66.
