Ban Private vehicles & Autos/taxis ferrying School kids.

Dear Sirs & Respect Madam,

We have been reading about numerous incidents of private vehicles being used to ferry school children being involved in accidents across the country,

Only last week , there was a incident in suburban Mumbai where a pvt vehicle carrying 8-9 students over turned due to rash driving.The kids were given medical help and thankfully  no casualties happened.

There is a state & national manual already existing for rules and regulations to be followed by these operators but these are thoroughly disregarded by the private vehicle operators as well as auto and taxi drivers.

All of the persons indulging in this illegal business continue unabated without any stoppage from the concerned schools or the authorities and in certain cases with local political patronage.

The school authorities invariably put the blame on the parents when any accident happens stating that the modes of transport are not authorized by them  and the govt.  authorities  including police  are quick to respond to an incident that actions are taken but far too few to affect the entire system.

It is time that the State & the Central governments take CONSTRUCTIVE ACTION and ban this activity altogether so that innocent lives are not lost due to the greed of a few people.

There should be a blanket ban imposed on private small and big vehicles being used to ferry children along with public transports, without permit.Every school should have designated and approved school bus /van operators with them with proper license and permits.This should be made mandatory.

Any action taken after an accident in the future where innocent kids loose their life will be too late to compensate in any manner whatsoever to the parents or the society at large.

I would request Hon, Prime Minister, Hon,Road transport Minister , Hon. Minister for Women & Child Welfare,Hon. Minister of Education, Hon. Chief Minister of Maharashtra , Hon. Minister of Education, Govt of Maharashtra. to kindly consider & accept this petition and put in a process to BAN Private vehicles along with Auto rickshaws & taxis from ferrying school children up to Std. X across the country.

This is the least we can do to ensure that innocent lives are not lost in our country due to the apathy of parents, school authorities and pvt. Individuals.

Our Government at the Center and State levels have been very responsive to the citizens through the digital platforms live Change.Org , the PM website  , App and other forums.

I am sure my petition will find a voice too in the governments of our state and our nation. 

Jai Hind.
