    More officers visiting and more committee meetings.
    The reral issue is the basic culture of Indians-no law abiding nature, brutal intention to overtake to spped up etc.. which the car cukture is encouraging them. Add to this, the sheer traffic on the highway, in this country whose population outstrips that of China.
    Many bmore serious accidents will happen in the Mysore-Bangalore highway,in a few moths time.
    No amount of inspections and committee meetings of officers can cure these Indian maladies.

    Planning a highway requires professionals with highway engineering education and training, certification and experience.

    Highways in India are not new by now. Yet, these accidents have become more and more common.
    Planning and engineering works can only do so much. Professionalism does not exist in India , whether it is healthcare, engineering construction, and good driving. Indians by recent nature- I means after independence, have become very self-centred and that accounts for graft, poor quality of any effort. Indians need discipline, whether one is educated or not. Whether one is a professional or not. Look at so many greedy specialists in medicine, who cause so much midery to patients. The rich patients leave for Singapore where one can expect professionalism from medical specialists.
    Railways in India are centuries old. Yet, there are so many issues when a new epress train is planned and becomes functional. The routes created are anything but fit for purpose.

    I wonder which country you are resident now. If you are not resident in India, then change your citizenship as in India, “professionals with one can become professional with highway engineering education , get training and certification by paying hefty money to the right authoroties, and become a top engineer of highways WITHOUT WORKING HARD TO EARN ALL OF THEM !
    Just look at the profession where lives of people are involved-the medical profession. If you are rich , can pay hefty capitation fees, and also pay hefty handouts to the examiners, you sail through all years of medical degrre education and get certfied as the doctor with a MBBS degree. Further sums of money handed out to the right people will get you the MD/MS post graduate degree and the specialist qualification such as DM, to make you a top cardiologist for example!! All axchieved without gaining much knowledge and spending sweat through hard work!! THIS IS YOUR INDIA, Hey @Indian!
    But, when it comes to health checks and treatment, just see where the politicians in power, who crearted the above fiasco, go ! Tenveer Sait went to Dubai, as it has the the branches of top hospitals of the UK and US, and JD(S) Kumaraswamy, quickly went to Singapore for a check up, before the counting of votes in the recent election ( his brother in law Manjunath was hailed as a top cardiologist by the SOM, and yet Kumanna did not use him to get his check up in Bangalore!!).
    There you go, @Indian!

    One criticism , all your facade about professionalism and education go out of the window, and you sound more like a badmash!
    You are just a cheap foul language speaking thug, who needs his leg broken.
