im a bus commuter and i dreaded the fact that there are more number of bus accidents on the road.Roughly half of those victims, including the bus driver, were taken to hospitals in fair-to-good condition.The fact that the bus was crowded appeared to help cushion some of the people who were thrown forward when the bus went off the road and hit the trees.most of the causes are human and machine errors. these two reasons are very common and i just hope the government will take actions on this-and promptly.

There are several reasons for the bus accidents, poor road conditions having ditches, narrow road, parking of other vehicles, cows, dogs on road, bus having poor break, drunk driver and over crowded bus to mention a few, we can call them killers.. Thanks for sharing. Professor. . Cheers

Bus companies should regularly have their transport vehicles maintained and checked for anything suspicious which might result into those accidents that we really want to lessen. Also, bus companies should also have qualified and trained operators. Those that are careful when it comes to driving in different conditions as well as have them prepared if not be replaced by their co-drivers if one of them seems to be feeling a bit sleepy. The government on the other hand would have to improve the roads that these buses travel along. Instead of making such roads go along turns, it would be best if they can provide straight roads. Widen some and have more lights at those roads that have high rates of accidents happening. Of course, those are just ideas. (^_^")
