June 12, 2023

T. Narasipur: Mysuru Division Joint Transport Commissioner Dr. C.T. Murthy has said that in the wake of increased accidents in T. Narasipur town, the Regional Transport Department (RTO) had formed two teams to ensure road safety. During their operation, the officials have seized more than 20 autos for traffic rules violations and four buses for not having Fitness Certificate (FC). The owners of these vehicles have been fined, added Dr. Murthy.

Dr. Murthy said that following the fatal accident between a private bus and a Innova vehicle at Kurubur junction on National Highway (NH)-766 on T. Narasipur Road, in which 11 people were killed on May 29, the team of officials visited T. Narasipur and conducted checking for overloading, vehicles plying without permits and drivers driving vehicles without having a valid Driver’s License (DL) etc. and fined the drivers and owners of such vehicles.

The District Police, in their report to the authorities, have suggested the junction as an accident black spot. It is learnt that as many as 8 fatal and 8 non-fatal accidents had taken place in five months this year.

A team of officials from various Government Departments have given a report highlighting precautionary measures to be taken to prevent further accidents.

Dr. Murthy said that the Transport Department officials will carry similar operation every week across the taluk and create awareness about road safety. He also assured that the Department will take necessary steps to prevent road accidents. There are a few ‘S’ type bends in the Highway and we are making efforts to change them, said Dr. Murthy and advised two-wheeler riders to wear helmets, follow rules and not to overtake vehicles at curves.

  1. Howdy, Modi! says:

    Who is this transport commissuioner, among those pot-bellied line up in that photograph?
    It appears like the other fat official the DC, he also abandoned his career as a doctor, opting to a career where he prefers chasing these culprits who break the traffic laws, instead of treating patients to relieve their suffering! There is a bucked load of money to be earned being an official like this, fattening his bank account, the same thinking as that of the DC.
    He will not catch the real criminals-the Malayalee smuggled gold distributors coming through the Wayanad-Nanjangud route, who also operate the lucrative Hawaala money scams. ?They use German cars, fast and smooth. Ofcourse, they bribe the commisioner like him and the Mysore police commissioner, with a choice of gold inguts or US Dollras! Yes, giving up the profession of a doctor, is very lucrative here!
    They arehired by the Malayalee business men resident in the Gulf States, who manage the gold smuggling into Kerala, through its 4 airports ( they are waiting for the Mysore airport ready to receive the A320/Boeing 737 jet passenger aircraft flying from Abudhabi every week, a non-stop flight promised by Modi when he was feted by them in Abu Dhabi lasyt year)-. The 10-lane Mysore-Bangalore highway is God-given gift to them for their business reach!
