Bombay High Court: Ensure safe transport of kids in school buses

The Bombay High Court on Tuesday, said that authorities should inculcate a law abiding culture in citizens. Especially, parents who for sake of convenience send their children in mini vans, auto rickshaws, not following proper safety rules, as done by school buses.

A division bench of Justice Naresh Patil and Justice G S Kulkarni while hearing a petition filed by an NGO, PTA United, highlighting the problem of non-implementation of Motor Vehicle rules in school buses, said “Schools should, on their own, devise a scheme which minimises usage of private vehicles, mini vans and auto and make school buses the preferred mode of transport.”
