Commission registered a case after finding that the bike that caused the accident in Thiruvalla was overspeeding, leading to the death of commuters Sandhya and a bike rider Aravind. The police found that the accused was riding a 1,000 CC Kawasaki Ninja bike at the time of the accident.

The Transport Commissioner has informed SHRC they would take appropriate action on the matter. It further noted that such bikes with high cubic capacity are not suitable for roads in the state.

The commission also directed authorities to install speed breakers, warning signs, speed bumpers to avoid overspeeding, and fencing medians to restrict commuters from crossing roads. "Regularly check the growth of vegetation on medians that restrict riders from seeing the opposite side of the road. Install facilities to enable commuters to cross the roads safely. Restrict public hoardings, banners and flags that blind vehicle riders and commuters. Ensure street lights are installed and functional. Police should conduct patrols to avoid racing events on roads," the commission stated.
