Shimla’s local buses – overloaded, polluting, but immune to law
SHIMLA- I am living in Shimla for last 10 years. Overloading and high emissions are very common issues. Now, they have become worse. Local buses, private and public, load passengers like cattle. They don’t force people, but what other option do these people have? Time is important for everyone. Still, overloading can’t be justified, at least, after considering the recent accidents that caused higher casualties due to overloading. Everyday, buses continue overloading in front of traffic police cops. They talks, gossip with drivers, but they ignore overloading and pollution. Pollution is no issue for traffic police or to the Govt. But it is a matter of concern for me, and very soon people will realize the same.
