I the undersigned,on behave of other commuters, want to inform you about the problems faced by commoners due to reckless driving of public vehicles. Death rates are increasing due to rough driving ,the driver as well as the common people becomes the sufferers and even some lose their lives.

Every life is precious,a little maintance is important to live long.
I will be highly obliged if you go through my concern and ask the administration to take necessary steps to deal with the menance.
