The transfer driver are crazy mainly the coaster driving guys are maniacs, they want to reach their destinations on time by hook or crook. My company''s 11 people died because of the drivers mistake and he escape unhurt. I really do not want a ban since everybody is here to earn their livelihood but a strict and very strict rules needs to be imposed for these private drivers who are playing with the lives of hardworking people....RIP sister

Need to give sufficient traffic training.
All driver should get safety training.
Traffic police they has to take initiative.

Next is our local private buses ,same route going in one place some times transferring people to other some time they are doing on signal red time.
Three days before I was traveling in a bus on red signal transfer people to other bus. In between signal on suddenly people come back to ther bus. One person fall in front of the because of Al sounds driver applied sudden break. Luckily he escaped. Very hard escape.

These kind of vans should be banned using for public transportation . Especially for carrying children. Always seen drivers on phone while driving.

Most transport Drivers are from Andra pradesh.
They hold mobile in one hand and they drive so fast and over take other vehicles. The Kuwait government must cancel the transport services and Provide Government cabs or Buses to all the locations

These mini buses are dangerous. at least coaster is required. i am always worried when i see mini bus with school children in last seat.
as the vehicles move very fast a small hit will reach the back seat innocent passenger. so please avoid mini bus (11 Seater). Demand or hire a coaster not a mini bus. tell me, now who can replace as a mother to the 10 year old daughter.

Very sad incident.
I feel the transportation guys don''t take the responsibility seriously. They should always think that they drive the passengers and not only himself.
Some of the drivers drive so rough.....
The Gov should take a strict action on the driver, cause he is putting the life of passengers in danger.

Very Sad... drivers of these transportation buses (specialy nurses) are very negligent. They drive very badly. How to stop such incidents ??? Well the best solution is with the Nurses itself. They should stop the drivers who drive fast else they change that bus or atleast 1hr before the nurses should leave their house. Now all nurses leave their house just before 30 minutes and in order to reach the hospital on time in the morning rush hour drivers drive rashly.

The MOI officials are not having any rules and regulations set for the school buses nor is the MoE concerend about the safety of the school going kids. The officials from these two departments must visit UAE and see how stringent the laws are there. School bus is only for transporting kids with cameras inside, outside front and rear. No other passengers can travel by the YELLOW painted buses and vans. Here the same bus transports kids in the morning and labourers after that and night nurses. Business kills human beings in Kuwait. Police is just stationed on the sides of the road and in front of them people speed and overtake from wrong side and no police interferes. Poor lady lost her life and her family a bread winner. What loss for police or MoI people?

Shocking, Our heartfelt condolences......

@George Mathew Very true, they don''t follow basis traffic rules, and drive at a speed of 120 km/hour on highways. I have seen this particular "Transportation" bus to Ahmadi going above 120 on Road no: 40, risking the lives of many (inside and outside the bus.)

I am stunned at the death news. God give the strength to the family to bear this irreparable loss.

The mini buses are a terror on the roads. the drivers are always in the hurry and drive these buses like rockets. the buses are driven by shaju and sheeju and some other drivers.

My heartfelt condolences, may the departed soul R.I.P.

Very sad news. Big losses for the family. But its high time to address a very concerning issue here. The way these transportation buses operate , it''s unbelievable. Look at the way they drive inside crowded places like Abbaisya , Salmiya etc. They stop anywhere they need blocking anyone , Come behind other vehicles , horn , abuse , over speed , stuns . High time to teach them some minimum driving ethics. Money and business cannot replace lost lives or permanent disabilities
