Safety first

Limiting the number of children travelling in an autorickshaw to school is a good move.

It should be enforced without any hesitation.

The police can convince parents and autorickshaw drivers that the restriction is in their interest. Schools which own buses should recruit drivers with good accident-free records. The recent incident of a small girl falling from a school bus would not have happened had the driver been more careful.

All school buses should be fitted with doors that can be operated only by the driver. Children can press a buzzer whenever they want to alight from the bus.
