All of Kochi's errant private bus drivers and the Kilis (nee cleaners who hang out of the doors with a whistle in his mouth) has to be made answerable.

Would the authorities concerned wake up from slumber?
As per the reports, the bus driver was taken into custody and a case was charged. If am correct his name is Basheer. But I seriously doubt this since most of the bus owners will easily pull this off.

This seriously got to change. I totally hate these guys

That is one shocking video scorcher. I've been to Kerala once and I've traveled across different cities in Kerala using the State Transportation buses. I was literally seeing the way these guys drove those buses. They have minimal respect for other people on the road. I've started to appreciate the bus drivers in Hyderabad after getting back.

What the bloody hell? The bus driver needs to be hanged for literally murdering the old man. Something has to be done to stop these morons from increasing the vicious acts that they already do.

It was really sad to see him running for his dear life in vain. RIP old man.

Agree with you Thad, I am sure with bad roads people would generally slow down and avoid getting into a mess. Now our highways are better and the accident rate has gone up.

The bus, and its owner, will walk out scot-free. In majority of the cases, the driver is let to fight the case all on himself - and Many drivers quit this profession out of pressure from such cases.

Here is a pic of this bus after the hit:

Edit: According to news reports, the bus was driven down to the police station by the cops. So the bus was perfectly fine.

The bus was fine. So it is the reckless and negligent driving being the cause and the driver is certainly the culprit. Needless to mention that he himself has to fight the case which is of his own making. He has murdered an unsuspecting senior citizen. See the speed at which he approached the junction. In any case, at that junction all the buses proceed straight and the buses towards Kadavanthra has to go through chittoor road and join at the Valanjambalam junction. Which means his overtaking attempt through the left lane is a gross violation of the rule. These private bus drivers usually does occupy the left lane at lights blocking the vehicles to the left.

These fellaws think that they own the road. If these lot cannot obey rules and do not posses the wherewithal to be obedient to the rules let them quit the profession for the sake of the public at large.

OT: Are you sure of what you are saying? The Accident occured at Pallimukku signal, which is well after the place you are referring to.

The bus was reportedly heading from Mattanchery to Perumbavoor - its not a City bus any ways. Notice the orange design on its side. And, At Pallimukku junction, NO buses take a left turn.

Sorry , you are right. I took it the other way round.
At the junction the left lane has been blocked for more than two weeks and this also added to the confusion.


My other words stays.

I am absolutely opposed to the death penalty but --- an instruction from the Supreme Court that such cases be regarded as rarest of rare would seem to have only problem: they are not very rare

Perhaps we are getting too political for this thread ...

I am yet to get over this bus carsh video. Forget diesel or petrol, sedan or SUV, pick-up evrsus top-speed. The lesser time we spend on road, the better off we are. Seems like we are more likely to die on our blood-washed roads than anywhere else. What was that old man's fault other than that he happened to be in that maniac's path? Just watch how the driver is trying to squeeze a full-size bus through a gap not wide enough for even a Safari. And there is no hint of any braking or even slowing down. It is as though the driver deliberately crashed into that building. Should be hanged in the very same intersection.

Grosse! Was this near the airport?

On a lighter note, nikhil- you sure are creative when it comes to masking numbers- appears as if the cab is screaming out "AAAA" in pain!!

Apologies for using those unparliamentary words there. I was so sad on seeing the old man being hit to death for absolutely no fault of his. Heck, is walking on the extreme corner of a main road that big a mistake to lose one's life? That's what made me say that.

TN Environmental minister dead on road mishap.
He was on his way to chennai from Trichy for oath-taking ceremony of newly elected MLAs in Chennai.
7am departure from Trichy to reach 10am function in heart of the city, sure the driver would made many to miss a heartbeat on the way before they met the devil.

News says that they are searching for the lorry driver (fled away with lorry), and it is clear case of the innova's drivers fault as he rear-ended in an attempt of negligent overtaking.
When these folks will learn.
