The Vijayanagar Railway Layout (Surya bakery) road has been a hotspot for traffic offences. The residents have been, on a daily basis, witnessing reckless driving by teenagers who are not only endangering their lives, but are putting other’s life in danger too.
Very recently an elderly gentleman was knocked off by an unidentified two-wheeler at about 11 in the morning who later succumbed to his injuries.
In another incident, one early morning at about 5.30 am, the residents woke up to the booming sound of a racing bike which went at more than 250 kmph in this residential area!
The irony is, CCTVs are unable to capture the footage clearly, and appears nothing less than a bullet shot, given the speed.
Being a residential layout, with the majority retired people living in this area, I urge the authorities concerned to take the matter seriously and take steps to prevent loss of innocent lives and alleviate our fear.

Yes, underage driving is becoming rampant in Mysore. I have seen kids who don’t seem to be even 15 years (let alone 18 years) of age riding mopeds/scooty and some even bike. If something unfortunate happens then parents blame others. Some kids/teenagers may be good at driving but what they lack is maturity, discipline and traffic sense which can lead to mishap.

First, it was daft to consider \Mysore as retirement city-it was never one, not even in 1960s.
Second, Indians in general and the youth in particular are generally not disciplined, rude and have no respect for any one-that is the culture of India today. The ancient culture that your PM Modi boasts is just a myth today. Just look at how Indian youths look at any women as an object for their gratification-rapes are on the increase.
This love for the two-wheelers , is nurtured by adults, who love car culture.
You just reap , what you sow. Thid world India, like Brazil, where such incidences are very common.
