    what happen to the 3 or 4 passenger law in a trishaw????? BAN THE TOKTOK........

    If they respected the rules of the country 2 innocent lives would have been saved. A three wheeler has its capacity, it is not a van. Parents drop children to school on mobike and the children dont have helmuts, and in front of traffic police. Still some minister wants to chage laws regarding insurance. if people dont value their own lives , can a law do?

    Again, over-crowding in a trishaw so the victims have no one else to blame..

    Let there be uniforms and identification papers pasted on the three wheelers.

    Most of the accidents are done by unlicensed sons or nephews of the three wheel drivers, trying to make a quick buck when their fathers or uncles are taking a rest.

    Urgently need speed limit within city areas and spot fine to reduce the accidents like in Europe. Also need more trafic police officers who do not get bribe for trafic iffences .

    They say two is company, three is a crowd but six ? Diaster! Wonder what happened to the law limiting the number of passengers in a three-wheeler.

    Use NANo Taxis instead of Three Wheelers. better safe, Comfortable and cheap.

    Private busses and 3wheelers are the killing machine...

    y cant senior police officers take action against traffic officers taking bribes from innocent drivers

    Eng Wednesday, 29 August 2012 07:28 AM

    two of them are kids (less than 3 years old!)

    The accident may have been the result of the recklessness and flouting of the road rules by one or both drivers, and not the over crowding.

    Ban the three wheelers which cause most problems and accident on the road.
