This picture was taken by an amateur photographer in Panadura this morning, where school children are compelled to sit in makeshift seats leaning on the rear windscreen of a school van.

    Just another and good example of how lackadaisical bus drivers and school officials are with their responsibilities to the safety of school-going children. Society in general and the Ministry of Education in particular are failing in their duties. And what about the police who surely must see school vans crammed with children?

    Welldone !!! Photographer... WE need more people to click and send pictures in this era of mobile phones with camera and video, so that culprits could be brought to book. The school van service NEED to be monitored... It's a MAFIA by itself..

    Kids are packed like cattle..I know some accomodate upto 28 in a 15 seater van.... most do re-runs within a short time frame and drive like MANIACS, putting others lives on the line.... for their GREED..

    I sincerely hope the lisence plate of this vehicle was not erased, so the authorities can start penalizing the culprits...
