[Resolved]  NHAI 218: Life Threatening Speed Breakers — Killer speed breakers in rural stretch of NH 218

Address:Dharwad, Karnataka

I was traveling on the NH218 between Hubli and Bijapur last weekend. Was thrilled with the improvements and new laid highway. My joy was short lived as I began to discover the highway becoming more and more dangerous and life threatening to drive. The speed breakers laid down on this stretch are ridiculously unscientific and un-imaginably dangerous. Not only there are no indications of the speed breakers worse even is the dangerous manner in which these are constructed. Do the NHAI and the contractors have any brains while these are made? Do they have any sense of building and constructing roads in a scientific manner?

The manner in which the humps are constructed have caused serious injuries to the travellers.
Dont the NHAI understand that by making such killer speed humps, how much of damage they can cause older citizens (mostly rural having limited access to hospitals), young children and most importantly pregnant woman? NHAI should solely be held responsible for causing major accidents let alone bad driving be another factor. Can the NHAI not think of simpler and effective mechanisms of regulating speed on the highways with alternate approaches than speed breaking humps?
NHAI please wake-up from the deep slumber act before you take away any more lives!!
This is not just limited to one above mentioned highway, but in general for public interest.
