    As a driver i have not come across indecipline driving by police or other forces. But from getting into the road and come back home, every minute indecipline driving by trisaw and mobike. Dont know what happened. But it is general perception.

    Arrested the police driver? LoL. Tomorrow he will get bailed and the commission report will go missing. What a joke!

    Three wheelers drive as if they own the road. We see it every day. They overtake big vehicles occupy the middle of the road, overload the vehicle and are involved in many crimes too. Most members are JVP.
