Roads have enhanced, not driving abilities: ADGP
DGP and visitors specialist MA Saleem stated Agood street surface and lack of driving skills are the primary causes of the injuries occurring because of’overspeeding’.
“The caliber of several nation and domestic highways in Karnataka has enhanced… But driving skills haven’t improved in tandem. Someone driving in the center of a threelane highway abruptly veers to the ideal lane, forcing the motorist coming behind to eliminate control and rear-end the car . Strict enforcement with frequent patrolling will aid in bringing down the amount of injuries,” he explained.
