    It's sad that no were in Mangalore or it's surrounding, speed control radars have been installed and it's the main reason why many road accidents take place. Traffic accidents can be avoided if the department penalize over speeding vehicle without mercy.

    Load is not secured .simply overloaded ,or one kept over the other .High speed too.So now free fish to everybody.No Police to control them about over weight or their speed?Or is allowed everything when a blue note exchanges the driver and police?
