In yet another road accident involving a high end 200cc bike that occurred near Srirangapatna took the lives of two Mysuru-bound young engineering students of Mangaluru and studying in Bengaluru college, who were in a fun trip to the city of palaces recently. This has lead to traffic blockade for 2 hr on busy highway. It is really not understandable why the youth has to go at such a high speed not caring for their lives itself. Luckily in this accident no other person was hurt and no damage to other vehicles reported. What this incident left behind is the agony to the parents and relatives of both the deceased youth. Is it the mistake of parents to buy such a high speed bikes or the riders who do not care elders’ words? In any case road safety is everyone’s responsibility.
