It is best to have a clear understanding prior to passing judgement. Your post was, plain and simple, UNREADABLE. Why? Because you have cut-copied-pasted from another word document and all the font tags ended up showing. We would much appreciate your previewing a post prior to submission, and also reading the FAQ on removing FONT tags.

I had taken a KSRTC Volvo to Chennai few months back, thankfully, he took the 6 lane median separated Hosur Road (part of Golden Quad).
Strange that you feel that way and calling this the most dangerous highway in the country...
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.

But that is after you join the Hosur - Chennai road right ?

True Muralik,

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.
