  1. why dont State government ask fund from Center to put fenders on roads to avoid vehicles skidding off the road.
    They should be made to publish records of accidents annually and remedial measures taken by them many accidents happen beacuse of careless attitude of PWD, roads not kept in good shape and people parking on roads itself.
