At least the driver had the sense to stop, and allow the passengers off in time.

Some might keep going wondering what's up, with a fatal result for many.

Better to spend the money on the garish graffiti, mirrors and lights, than on a safe and sound mechanical design and proper maintenance. Amulets are better than certificates.

 

(Sarcasm alert, for the feeble of intellect).
