Highways remain unsafe

Despite the demands, there has been little positive changes seen in terms of improving road safety. The highways, in particular, pose grave dangers because of three-wheelers and unsafe locally made vehicles.

Intercity bus operators in southern districts held strikes to demand that these small vehicles be banned on highways, but it fell on deaf ears. Every day, the number of these unauthorised small vehicles is increasing, along with the number of accidents on highways. The current situation demands serious attention from the authorities concerned.
