    This route is one of the most dangerous. These auto drivers and two wheeler riders are most of them not knowing any safety and traffic rules. They suddenly appear from no where side roads all of a sudden. Then if there's a crash they will fight all along with their unions and some dal gangs. Now police should get the auto driver, cancel his license and make him to pay for the damages if found guilty. It does mean that our private bus drivers are holy saints, they are also responsible for causing accidents. We need more KSRTC buses on this route to avoid private buses competition at cost of lives of poor passengers.
