Dear Sonia,

I hope this letter finds you well. I write this letter to you to discuss a problem that you and I have often suffering about. Remember our bumpy rides to school in the school bus? Well the stretch between SV Road at Milan Junction and the Link Road, passing through Daulat and Rizvi Nagar, is still a nightmare for commuters. I recently read in the papers that this infamous stretch has 179 potholes! To top it up, the rains have turned many of them into small pools of dirty water, the biggest among them measuring 3 X 3 metres with a depth of 10 inches! Naturally, the motorists struggle every day to commute on this road.


The authorities may take years to act upon this problem. So it is up to us to take the necessary precautions to avoid any fatalities. We need to instruct our bus driver to steer clear of the big potholes. Driving slowly will minimise the inconvenience caused to the passengers. The water-filled potholes have to be avoided since it is difficult to gauge their depth. We can also opt for an alternate route even if it takes longer to get to school. I have decided to distribute these printed instructions to other motorists who use this road. I truly believe that the frequency of accidents can be brought down considerably if everyone adheres to these instructions. Write back to me with your views on this subject.

Yours truly,
Anitha

Subject: The bad conditions of roads

Dear Sir,

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.


Thanking you,

Yours truly,
Amin Buhari
