Yesterday morning, a 23-year old Bangalore tech worker on a motorcycle was killed by a bus as he maneuvered to avoid a sewage-filled crater in the middle of the road. The hole was left by stalled road construction.
Well-maintained roads are not just a matter of convenience and the economic well-being of the city. They are quite literally a matter of life and death for Bangalore motorists.
Call the politicians who spend your tax money and tell them that road quality is one of the issues that you will be thinking about when you vote!

Your vote is your strength.
But don’t rely on politics to keep you safe. Be responsible on the roads! If you are riding a two-wheeler (as a driver or as a passenger), wear a helmet. If you are in a car, buckle your seat belt.
