    Shocking indeed 😑 if one were to put together the number of fatalities in ALL the metropolis across the entire country, the fatalities in coastal belt of Karnataka ALONE is a thousand times more than the accidents elsewhere. Only God Almighty can save the coastal belt of Karnataka.

    If the motorcycle rider was wearing a proper helpet with a secure strap, this accident could not be fatal from the way the condition of the motor cycle appears. Unfortunately, it is too late to regret.
