Re-direct Exhaust from BEST and other buses to curb Dust pollution !
This petition had 6 supporters
BEST Buses in Mumbai and other Buses carrying employees are major cause of Dust pollution. These large buses direct their exhaust pipes towards right side near rear wheel. On a road with divider, this exhaust directly kicks-up dust and other dry garbage gathered at the joint of divider and the road. Apart from pollution cased by burning diesel and associated carbon emissions, the dust thus thrown-up in the air on these roads, creates a highly dust-filled surroundings where one has to drive through and breath.
By simply bending the exhaust pipes of these buses towards back (like most cars and bikes), this major cause of dust pollution can be entirely eliminated. This can be easily enforced by traffic police and RTO also.
I am sure BEST being a very progressive organization, will take note and implement this simple measure. Others bus operators and other cities will follow soon.
