    Very sad, crossing is a big problem there are no zebra crossing on roads. People should be careful while crossing the road in a developing country. Even in the name of smart city project pedestrian crossing is not to the mark, there are no zebra crossings, no signal for the pedestrians and etc. Even in Hampankatta the situation for pedestrians is bad.

    Sad. I don't know why the local administers do not regulate speed, safety features of buses. We are loosing a lot of innocent lives due to Busses. Basically our narrow roads are not suitable for this Vehicle.

    Roads and bus stands are designed so badly that any time an accident can happen. No upgradation and no maintenance.
