It is a common sight in Mangaluru to find people that don't follow any traffic rules. They are a nuisance on the roads. These people don't wear helmets, no face masks, and absolutely no adherence to traffic rules. Vehicles spew out enormous amounts of noxious harmful smoke. The traffic police never catch any of these annoying violator criminals at all. Mangaluru traffic police are worst and highly corrupt. They nab only innocent people all the time.

Mangalore roads don't have lane markers. Vehicles wobble around the roads without following each other, and the administration is not concerned about introducing lanes. Bus drivers are the absolute worst in Mangalore. Many people overtake from the wrong side. Vehicles are parked on the road and all the vehicles are an eyesore on the roads. Pollution is increasing swiftly in Mangalore.

Private buses in Mangalore are the worst. They are a major obstacle to the development of transport infrastructure in this city. There are comments in the Quality of Life section that correctly highlight the pain points of these worst private buses. The private bus drivers exceed the speed limits and never care about the safety of other vehicle riders and drivers. The private bus lobby has to be completely eliminated from Mangalore.
Mangalore needs good infrastructure namely the Metro Rail, BRTS, high speed trains and railway connectivity, expansion of airport runway, more aerobridges, flyovers, underpasses, pedestrian skywalks, footpaths, etc. immediately. Also very good highways with tunnels are absolutely necessary. If not, then transport in Mangalore will be a complete chaos for sure. Other people have also correctly emphasized these aspects in their comments.

In Mangalore, both the BRTS and Metro Rail are required at the earliest. All the swarm of thousands of disgusting vehicles of the people along with the horrible private buses must be eliminated. This will lead to excellent riddance of filth from the roads. Mangalore traffic is disgusting and it is all courtesy of the foolish people who showoff their vehicles and the crappy private buses, that are well past their expiry date. Cooperation of the traffic police is also needed in the eradication of all these thousands of vehicles from the Mangalore roads. Traffic is already a hellhole here. Smart City projects are a joke and a complete failure.
Unless both the BRTS and Metro Rail projects get initiated and completed soon, transport in Mangalore will surely become a complete disaster. Mark my words.
The traffic index statistics in this page are completely fake. Thank you for reading my honest comments.

I completely agree with all the comments of @A Kotian. Mangalore needs both the BRTS and Metro Rail very soon.
A Kotian on Jan 30, 2021:
Plenty of traffic congestion is there in Mangalore. People are crazy about vehicles in this small city. Many people here like to showoff by using personal vehicles. Private buses in this city are arguably the worst in India. There is plenty of traffic congestion everyday at Nanthoor, Pandeshwar, Pumpwell, Kankanady, KS Rao Road, Balmatta, Hampankatta, Falnir junction, etc. The railway level-crossing at Pandeshwar is causing a lot of traffic blockage. There are no pedestrian skywalks at any place in this city. No one is bothered about introducing BRTS and Metro Rail facilities in Mangalore. No flyovers either to avoid traffic blocks. Small infrastructure projects tsje decades to get completed. There are no road markers and no medians either at several roads. All the politicians and media are trash. The people in Mangalore are fools to vote for useless politicians. Smart City my foot!
