Why don't we go to office or college in lungi and baniyan?
Why do restaurants say, "Shirts and shoes required?"
Does dressing professionaly, shaving and having a smart haircut matter anymore?
What environment do we want to live in?

Do we ever want to differentiate between passenger vehicles and trucks?
A Volvo ticket-sales office in Mumbai shared an opinion that the Patel-Volvo conflagration happened in Gujarat because of illegally transporting a cooking gas cylinder in the hold meant for bonafide passenger baggage.

Providing the drivers with a decent uniform is not only to make them presentable, it may improve their self esteem and may help make more responsible drivers on the road...

you are forgetting one thing SS
about uniform, when climbing bus I see driver in uniform I KNOW that he is qualified professional. (Volvo drivers get special training)

At the risk of slipping a wee bit off-topic, let me share a thought.

When you travel overseas, unshaven with jeans and sneakers, the air-hostess will not treat you properly. And airport immigration at your destination will grill you more severely, even despite proper documents. If you return home from overseas, unshaven with jeans and sneakers, even the airport customs will single you out for harassment.

Strangers whom you need to interact with, invariably form a first impression of you from your attire and presentation, even before you utter a word! And first impressions last very long. If you're impeccably dressed, good helpful first impressions about you start to form in people's minds.

Those who look like bums, end up being treated as bums, by all concerned. That's why, I'd like my chauffeur and watchman to be very smartly turned out in uniform.

'nuff said!

I totally agree with ram!

A well dressed person commands respect.
A shabbily dressed person has to earn respect.

I think we pay a lot more than the regular buses when we book tickets on a Volvo..

And yes, we do complain (Indians) that the foreign bus drivers are smarter and much more respectful..for example in singapore, the bus driver is very smartly dressed and in uniform with tie and greets you when you enter the bus..do we also not want our surroundings like that?
we claim ourselves to be IT pros' and the next happening country..
cant' we dress decently???
