Remove speed breakers from National highways

I have been travelling between Bangalore and Pune via NH4 for a long time and this was supposed to be the most safest and faster way connecting cities like Bangalore,Pune and Mumbai. Recently 3 to 4 years I have seen many unscientifically designed speed breakers(humps) coming up on this national highway especially between Davangere and Belgaum,which have caused so many accidents and many having close escape.

The tolls collected on this highway is enormous,but the quality of road and these speed breakers cause inconvenience to numerous travelers going via that road.Request NHAI to look into this and please remove these once in for all,also a request to check the quality of the roads for which the huge tolls are being collected.

There is an article from Economic times suggesting the same,but doesnt look like its been implemented.

"According to the Road Accident Report (2014), published by the ministry, 4,726 lives were lost in crashes due to humps while 6,672 people died in accidents caused due to potholes and speed breakers"
