    In order to kill all five in the auto definitely the bus must have been at great speed... School buses must have speed governors as I am seeing such vehicles carelessly speeding in the roads of Udupi... Punishment must be severe and if involved in fatal accident such a driver must be banned from driving for life time... Only then sense of fear will make life easier for other road users...
