Rowdy stu­dents a se­cu­rity night­mare on buses

It seems fash­ion­able for some stu­dents to get into mis­chief af­ter they board buses.

They try to rock the bus from side to side and dam­age seats.

It’s their ver­sion of ex­treme adventure to ob­tain max­i­mum thrill.

The lat­est video on this type of un­ac­cept­able and de­plorable be­hav­iour is go­ing vi­ral on so­cial me­dia. This type of anti-so­cial be­hav­iour should be con­demned in the strong­est pos­si­ble terms and those re­spon­si­ble should go through some sort of dis­ci­plinary ac­tion.

If they walk away with­out hav­ing to an­swer for their de­spi­ca­ble con­duct, it would send the wrong mes­sage. And there is like­li­hood that they would do it again.

In this par­tic­u­lar in­ci­dent, the ob­vi­ous ques­tion is: If there were adults or teach­ers or par­ents present what did they do to try to stop it?

What we are deal­ing with here is a very se­ri­ous is­sue about the safety of other pas­sen­gers on board. If that bus had crashed be­cause the driver could not han­dle a rock­ing bus, it would have had tragic con­se­quences.

They were lucky it did not hap­pen.

The next time, peo­ple might not be so lucky.
