The Jeeyapuram police have registered a case.Kandasamy further said, “Several accidents happens in NH 67 between Pettavaithalai and Trichy. The road construction of NH 67 is long pending with potholes, most of the accidents occur due to lack of driving knowledge, the big factors responsible for accidents are-drinking, reckless driving ,bad conditions of the roads, careless driving. There should be couple of things, if implemented can make traveling by road safe such as drivers should not drink and drive, avoid speaking on the cell while driving, Kids under 18 must not be allowed to drive, Adequate warnings and signals on the road must be provided to the driver, The person next to the driver must not sleep, The driver must not drive after a heavy meal which might induce sleep,. Loud music and talks must be avoided and the vehicles are to be road worthy”.-Govin
