Be it an influence from movies or the consequences of being drunk, multiple incidents of rash driving are observed these days. In addition to the life of one single driver, improper driving might result in taking away the life of many other innocents.
Earlier a video of rash driving went viral on social media in 2015. Now, another scene took place in Tamil Nadu’s Pollachi-Coimbatore highway.
However, in this video, two privately-owned passenger buses are seen racing each other in a reckless manner, endangering the lives of those inside the bus and on the highway, one can notice the uncontrolled imbalanced situation on the road.
The video uploaded by a person on Facebook has gone extremely viral roping in the concerns of the normal people against such kind of driving. According to reports, the people of Pollachi petitioned the district authorities to take action against the two private transport companies.
Though the respective authorities have started looking into the case, it will be better if proper surveillance is installed at the various spots on the Highway in order to put an end to this. It is already known that Pollachi-Coimbatore highway is notorious for such driving. At the moment, road widening works are happening on the highway, due to which the road is narrower than usual, with debris on both sides of the road. In spite of this, private buses often drive recklessly and compete against each other purposelessly.
Sources claim that the transportation department has charged a probe on both the private companies in Pollachi and the concerned district Sub-Collector Gayathri Krishnan is also looking into the issue.
