  1. Mangalorean drivers are one of the worst in the world. There is no value for life.
    That driver should be arrested immediately and put behind bars.

  2. If u want to control this then I request all traffic police people to control this bus drivers hell competition in bus. All buses are are out of control going horning at high speed. They don’t care the two wheel in road .. kindly stop this it’s a request.

  3. More KSRTC city bus routes should be introduced and private buses should be phased out as these are causing accidents due to speeding and competition to grab more passengers

  4. Atleast now trafic commissioner take action against the city bus drivers for rash driving and cancel his lisence, please start the bendorewell signals soon dont allow any innocent person die.
