Cameras in buses

E-mail Print
By Gandhya Senanayake

The Ministry of Private Transport Services has decided to install cameras in private buses to monitor and detect any unprofessional conduct or malpractice by bus crew members on a day to day basis, Private Transport Services Minister C. B Rathnayake told Daily Mirror online

The Minister said this facility will also enable the owners of private buses to monitor their buses while they are in operation.

Furthermore Minister Rathnayake said the authorities had been informed to remove stickers, banners and other propaganda material depicting politicians and political parties from their buses.

Installing cameras in private buses are aimed at countering women being harassed while travelling in buses, over-loading, malpractice concerning bus fares and the disregard to road rules by some private bus drivers as witnessed in recent times. (Daily Mirror online)

Before thinking about cameras, discipline the driver and conductor on good PR. Some of these fellows are so unkempt that they stink and are the nuisance to the commuter.

Mr. Minister you have to do a lot to introduce professionalism to the private bus industry in Sri Lanka before installing cameras.

Looks like some one important is importing lots of cameras these days. As usual the common man will have to bear this cost as well at the end.

Furthermore, just import Chinese buses which are air conditioned and do what buses are supposed to: stop, pick up passengers and go.

People must be warned that they should use deodarant before getting into an airconditioned bus. Our country will never be like most advance countries in the world.

what we need is decent organized transport system with proper standards. cameras can be a secondary option, first the people must be trained on proper customer service in all service organizations and decent behavior in public places should be strongly monitored and practiced like in Singapore and Malaysia

haha the very funny things for up coming election. An authority who failed to install simple GPS signals, going to install heavy video streams from moving buses! Still no operator in SL with such ntwork backbone to facilitate big bandwidth. Funny talks!

I suggest the minister to follow the European countries like Switzerland in this regard, not up to that level but can plan and begin to work towards that level.
