The video shared by Twitter handle, Mangalore city on January 11 has garnered over 30,000 views so far. The hair-raising video left netizens discussing over who was at fault. A Twitter user wondered which bus driver takes a U-turn without switching on indicators and without pausing to look if anyone is coming.
“Overspeeding by the biker and carelessness by the bus staff. Need not be termed as miraculous escape and all that to grab attention. Cops should book both,” commented another user.
Which bus takes a u turn without checking what is coming and without indication.

While doing a u turn, after the front of the vehicle steered to an angle the rear view in side mirror is a blindspot. That’s y supportive staffs assist during such times in heavy vehicles. Many drivers turn, reverse very slowly to get sufficient reaction time for both vehicles.
