  1. In Belgaum also it is the same .Zig zag barricades are kept and some times from distance they are not visible when lights are not there especially in early morning when we go for walks.Spead breakers are not having zibra strips and have become accident spots.Authorities should wake up before it is too late.

  2. Kolkata is one of our countries metro city and capital of west Bengal and there is no reflectors or warning lights on the barriers where Shubham met with the accident and died. For this who is responsible ? May God rest his soul in peace. Condolences to his family.
