Subject: The bad conditions of roads
I, Amin Buhari, am a student of St. Aloysius High School. I have written to you to highlight the plight of the commuters who happen to use the infamous CS Road every day. Travelling by this road has become increasingly difficult due to the increasing number of potholes. Some potholes are so big that small vehicles like rickshaws and motorbikes get stuck in them. This problem worsens during the monsoons when these ditches fill up with water. Unsuspecting commuters and motorists routinely get injured trying to navigate through these potholes.
I sincerely request commuters be asked to drive slowly along the road to minimise the casualties. Helmets should be made mandatory to motorists who use bikes and scooters. Also vehicles must be told to steer away from water-filled potholes since many of them look deceptively shallow. Lastly, I suggest using the adjacent SM Marg which is relatively better than CS Road. I truly hope that the commuters take these precautions to minimize the troubles they face every day.
