Anyways have been travelling on this route since my childhood, and this is the route that loved to drive in. Yes there is no median like you pointed out but until recently i never found driving in this route a pain. Now because of the widening work that has been taken up its not apleasant route but otherwise this used to be a wonderful route.

The Tata and Leyland buses are literally Bullock Carts when compared to the VOLVO buses while climbing the Ghats and stuff and now that these drivers are given such powerfull engines to control, they are literally trying to relieve themselves by make use of the engine power in all wrong ways possible.
Iam sure that the Adrenaline in them will be pumping beyond control when they drive the Volvo's, such drivers never had any regard for the Passengers travelling in the past on the ordinary buses anyways and giving them such machines only makes it more dangerous and more losses of innocent lives.
If you take a look at the list of the passengers , one will notice that at least two of them were Teachers by profession, what a shame to hear of such a loss. My sincere Condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones.
I conclude my comments in utter despair knowing that no one will ever be able to change whats happening in our country and such kind of a mentality will always remain in such drivers till the end.
