Student Falls from Overcrowded Bus in Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu: Urgent Calls for Transport Safety Reforms

In a disturbing incident in Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu, a school student fell from an overcrowded bus. The bus was packed to the extent that passengers were hanging from the sides and footboard, causing the bus to tilt. Despite the student falling, neither the bus driver nor the conductor stopped to assist. Fortunately, the student avoided serious injury as there were no vehicles behind the bus at the time. This incident underscores the urgent need for the state government to improve transport facilities, limit bus occupancy, and increase the number of buses on routes to enhance peak-hour frequency. Strict enforcement by traffic police and stronger legislation are essential to prevent such life-threatening situations in the future.
