cause of the accident is reckless driving. traffic cops are not botherd about bus drivers. since most of them are well looked after by the drivers and owners.

Almost 95% of the private bus are so careless & driving fast to beat other buses, and finally meet with an accident, putting all passenger's lives in danger. Punishment should be jail plus cancellation for life.

In other countries they use guns as weapons to kill others. In SL vehicles are used to do the same.

These private bus drivers think that the road is only for them. Agree with Tomas's comment.
