    This is a reflection of very sad status of Transport safety Management System of our country. Not a single who is responsible for safety has brains or will to solve the issue. This includes the entire Ministry, Road Transport Safety Commission headed by a medical doctor who knows only how to count broken bones, Traffic police, RMV and Law enforcement officials.With reference to this incident which is one of many hundreds of brake failures of buses, who investigated the cause? Which Police Traffic Cop, Ministerial official or Lawyer know about AIR BRAKE SYSTEM of this bus which is also KNOWN AS FAIL SAFE BRAKES SYSTEM?These brakes WILL NOT FAIL under any circumstances unless someone abuse or neglect it and made to apply brakes if there's a failure.What is the role of Depot Engineer, Manager and Technical staff? To maintain and adjust them by testing the functionality at given intervals. This is a 3rd degree murder!
