We can't even get our rail gates working properly yet some want to increase the speed limit.
May the Dead rest in peace and the injured get healed quickly.

1. Our people never ever learn
2. You cant blame gov for every stupid mistakes made by drivers
3. Most drivers drive like they are sitting on a hot stove, no patience.
4. Tests for drivers licencing must be toughen and corruption must be eradicated. (I have seen a women who couldnt move the vehicle 5ft without stalling the engine getting the licence in Nara)

Unprotected rail crossings in this day and age are unacceptable. Attention should be paid to this area before they build jogging tracks.

these are my views regarding to your comments.
1.Our autorities will never learn.
2. We have to blame Gov. not maning unprotected Railway crossings and erecting atleast "bamboo gate"
3.All the drivers are going after money,like others as Private bus industry is not a smooth as we think and they have to pay soo many taxes and santhosams.
4.Agreed.

These things happen in the developed word as well, but in SL(third word) keeps happening over and over again. Its a fault of the system and with corrupt leaders and officials we cant expect subordinates to allways do the correct.

Death penalty is the good example to follow in this case as well.

Main reason behind this is negligence of police officers for not arresting reckless drivers. Because most of these bus owners are political fat cats.

This kind of accidents occurred before and so many lives were lost. We are still not learning from experience.

Before hanging the driver conduct an inquiry.How do we know whether there was a protection at this level crossing?
