    Good work done by Kushalnagar police, when will Mysuru police follow suit. Many times readers have pointed out that many underage children both boys and girls drive a two wheeler, there has been no action from local police. Children think that if they know cycling they can drive two wheeler. Visit any tutorials at 0600am , you will find a row of two wheelers parked which most of them are driven by children. RTO and local police wake up.

    If such moves can happen at Bangalore, we can witness discipline and also less of accidents.
    Can police target minors driving. This is rampant offlate.
