Don’t try to tell me this is normal!
The rear wheels were ripped from a Transport Board bus when it “braked sharply”, according to an article in The Nation.
My question is, “Why did the wheels come off?”
Was it metal fatigue? Lack of maintenance? Improper installation? Corrosion?
How many other buses are in similar precarious condition? What is the Transport Board going to do to ensure that its buses are safe?
Here’s the article from The Nation, but naturally the paper asks none of the above questions and makes no observations other than the wheels came off the bus.
From reading The Nation, one would think that this is a perfectly normal occurrence!
