    Horrible tragedy... The bus would have given signals of distress or something being wrong to the driver in advance. Regular servicing and maintenance is the need. But cost cutting, feeding to the needs of corrupt officials by passes rules and regulations which are just on paper. Precious lives have been lost in a sleeper bus for irresponsible men.

    Pray for the children and adults who lost their lives... OM SHANTHI

    Our traffic police department does not punish the idiots who use high beam lights unnecessarily.
    High beam lights cause temporary blindness which results in fatal accidents. Must ban the use of high beam lights unnesasery.
