Respected Sir,

On 8/1/07 at about 12:39 pm we were travelin on Hosur Road at Hosa Road junction towards Infosys on motorcycle (license number KA-06-R-4138) when a bus (license number TN-30-B-7221) truck us from behind and dragged us for eight meters, resulting in injury to our persons and damage to the motorcycle. Upon stopping, the illegal driver immediately switched seats with the licensed driver of the bus. This occured on the left shoulder of the road and was witnessed by M.S.

Thanking you,

    This sounds like dangerous legal system. Is there any recourse against the public officials taking the bribes?

    I think I would move to a different place rather than take my chance in a place like this.
