Speed Kills....does 40KmPh too??


Now, now, a civil engineer from Pune had come down to Mumbai to wirte a piece on the notorious stretch of road on the Eastern Express Highway for the Marathi Vidynan Parishad. Little did the good man know that he might get a hands on experience; he too ended up as a victim. A victim of MMRDA's callousness. Thankfully no lives were lost. Though a couple of days before, a tanker carrying asphalt had upturned at the Godrej Junction again.





The great news was that MMRDA finally decided to probe the skidding but they still blame the motorists for speeding. The Engineer was driving at 40 KmPh!! Need I say more??

Thanks for the suggestion sir!! :P

The reason I mentioned 40KmPh is because the other day I was talking to someone and he mentioned that people drive at that stretch of road at almost 20 KmPh and the MMRDA still blamed the 'speeding' motorists as a contributory factor.

WE need not be the victim, neither BMC should be critisized about the way they are behaving....
Its the way people are, mentally corrupted and that has made the entire system corrupt. Also, our population is so large, that even if someone like you goes into Civil service, you will end but doing less good than you could actually would have expected or desired.

@ Amol

Maybe you're right. Maybe I'm being too cynical. But it's the callousness of the authorities, indifference towards Human life and the inaction that hurts...and prompted me to write this..
But you cant blame the population for sub standard roads...you use the road daily naa??
