    Very sad news. May the souls rest in peace. One person's driving makes other's life in danger. Very pathetic.

    Waiting to hear reaction of bus and van drivers unions who are ready to demonstrate and destroy public property when they are told to follow rules and accept fines if they break them. It is time for the government to stand up to these thugs and murderers responsible for the ten lives and more, if this continues.
