The uncouth Public Service Vehicles Did I call them uncouth? Yes, that is what they are in my country. They overload the machines. A thirteen sitter carries almost double the number. They have pieces of wood that they fix in-between the seats to accommodate more people. Their language is not so good. The music blares so loudly in these cages. The music does not mind the age too. featured image/fancycrave1/pixabay

Oh my goodness, this sounds horrible and even dangerous. It's not a good idea to overload the public vehicles.

In my are there was a minister who created order in thebPublic service vehicles. There was a speed governor, safety belts, uniform for the driver and tout and the vehicles carried th3 right number of passengers

I think you used the right word to describe those vehicles. So unpleasant for all passengers.

They are really uncouth. How good are they in your area?

@stbrians Well, in our area, the suburbs of Chicago, the public service vehicles are usually not overly crowded nor are they noisy, but the cost of using public transportation can be costly.

@Corbin5 Is that so my friend! Better the cost than the noise and being uncouth

I take it there is very little regulation of the drivers or vehicles in your country?

@stbrians So often politicians choose to undo the last guy's work - even if it was good work.

@asfarasiknow Why is it so my friend. Before the minister passed on, he was transferred to another ministry

They are but that seems to be the most available transport as taxis are expensive
