    The buses insist others go to the drain - the driver should be charged for manslughter under criminal law - not under traffic offences.

    Three wheels are the most unsafe contraptions on road. But paradoxically, the drivers seem to assume that they are driving around in bulletproof Volvos. It would be interesting to see what the crash ratings are for a Bajaj three wheel. People should be educated about not using these death vehicles out of the cities and towns.

    I would advice that the RMV department should reduce the maximum speed for buses to 60 KMPH. I mean they have to blocker on the accelerator.

    It is high time to stop usage of three wheelers, they should be replaced with mini cars which can be given to three wheel owners at concession rate. wheelers are most unsafe as well causing traffic jam in most of instances.
