wow!! The SX4 would have probably cartwheeled if it was driven into that hole at high speed !! Paver blocks are ok at junctions.. but on straight roads? Dunno why they use them.

Overnight in Kharghar on the road to the Tata Hospital, speedbreakers have appeared.

Yesterday night I was driving on that road and suddenly I see a un-marked speed-breaker which required me to slam the brakes on my car. I reached the next junction and there was one more!

Andheri Western Express Highway!
Cars and bikes come at a speed of more than 80kmph, straight into these death traps! How hard is it to level the road?!

Almost every bike coming in high speed almost lost control here because of the sudden jerk.

Opp Cafe Coffee day on Vikhroli - LBS Marg Mumbai,today driving back from town to home Just outside the petrol pump with the CNG station there's a rectangular manhole cover which has sunk into the manhole. People coming to Kailash complex from LBS Marg be careful.

Cheers

I'm sure if we pass by all those areas which are pictured above, there won't be any change. I don't think there is a system to keep regular checks on the roads and signals.

Does anyone know where to complain about open manhole covers, bad roads or non-functioning signals?! And can you file for RTI?!
I really want to know because this is getting out of hand.
