Folks, is it safe to travel from Mlore to Blore in the current situation? Hearing news of vigilante mobs setting up road blocks. Please advise.

Don't know about vigilante mobs. But there is a message being forwarded that road block has been set up at Farangipete and traffic is not allowed to cross to general public. Can't authenticate the news though. Though you are suggested to not to travel to or from DK district since it's in lockdown.

Highly risky, many districts have complete shutdown orders. I shelved my plans to travel from Bangalore to Udupi. Police are catching anyone traveling on roads, unless valid emergency reason is provided, you can be arrested.

My Cousin drive down to Kundapur from Bangalore last evening and reached early morning. Agumbe route.

No issues or check points whatsoever.
Strangely Even Agumbe Ghat was open through the night (I was on the assumption that vehicular traffic is banned from 6PM to 6AM)

If it is unavoidable, approach the nearest DCP office. They might issue a letter on humanitarian grounds.
I had to travel to Mysore yesterday due to a death in immediate family. We got the death certificate from the hospital and approached the local police station. They mentioned it should not be a problem and shared their station number in case of any issues. I didn't face any problem during my travel though there were multiple checkpoints. I could not get the letter from the DCP's office due to lack of time. A relative of ours got this letter.
I would recommend getting the letter from the police station.

Though the roads are empty and with skeletal traffic, keep in mind that there will be no support or recovery service in case of any eventuality. Stick to comfortable speeds and do not take any risks. Also there will be no restaurants open, so better pack food and enough water for the travel.

Also keep in mind that the Earth is healing itself.

Be aware of animals who would have started venturing out on the highways due to the non existent traffic. The highways were cutting them off all this time and they might have started crossing them in greater numbers due to the lessened disturbance.

Heads up to people who are venturing towards Kerala through DK district: Most of the main and interior roads connecting to Kasargod are blocked literally with barricade and loads of mud.

All - Agumbe Ghat was closed by the authorities at the checkpost. Not sure if they opened it up.

Anyone done a Bangalore-Mangalore road trip recently?

With the lifting of several restrictions, I assume it will be possible without requiring any passes or any sort of quarantine at the destination?

Until yesterday, pass was mandatory. Karnataka govt. is yet to take decision on inter district travel so we have to wait couple days more. There is checking at 3-4 places(Adichunchanagiri toll, Sakleshpura, Gundya) and they are strict! In Gundya they do thermal screening as well though not always. There are no restaurants open on the way, so carry your own food. Barring rough patch(manageable) between Hassan-Sakleshpur, rest of the road is holding good.

From what I read, travel restrictions between 7pm to 7am and full shutdown on sundays. So can only travel on weekdays.

It is not clear yet if there is any limit on number of passengers in the car.

Personally I find own car to be a safe mode of transport as long as we avoid physical contact with outsiders.

However, one is forced to make contacts during refueling, tyre shops etc. So be careful.

Planning to travel to Mangalore this friday. I will be travelling with my wife, son (3 year old) and in-laws (Father in-law is above 65 years). I am still trying to find information regarding the requirement of a pass as one of the Kannada news channel mentioned that inter-district pass will not be required. Also, details with regards to number of passengers allowed in not clear. Though it was previously 1+2, I think they are now allowing Uber and Ola to have 1+3 passengers and the same should be applicable to private cars I guess.
