When I read this , I was wondering why these kinds of incidents capture our attention span for few hours and to be forgotten until another one happens ?
How many of us in busy Chennai streets honk when school van or bus is blocking the road but there is a young kids boarding or get out of the vehicle at that time ? Its quite possible that this young girl got killed because someone distracted the Driver enough for him to start the Van before the door closed …
How many times have we stopped the school van/bus who might be driving a bit rash ? How many of us have complained to school when the school Van / Bus gets overcrowded ?
We seem to deem these to be acceptable risks and then some how we are surprised when accidents happen.
