"We will do whatever it takes in order to protect the legitimate government of Yemen from falling," Jubeir told a news conference. IS HE SERIOUS???????
Which government is he talking about - is it about the govt headed by the president who as reported by Gulf News today had fled by boat? Too much confusion...... But in all this, our prayers are with the innocent people who are put into so much hardship due to the selfishness and cruelty of some unsocial elements. May God be kind to our Yemeni brothers and sisters.

Maybe the Chamber of Commerce (DCCI) should take up this challenge and do the needful. It can then add value by supporting companies and their employees to work towards a benchmark.

DCCI? What do you think?

There are glaring gaps and absolute issues in the way this is done currently and the need for an independent body that can include and encompass a lot more companies across the country is needed.

This is very Bad.. The School Buses should start little early or should be allowed to reach the School late also.. The importance should be given to the Safety Driving for the Safety of School Children.

Even if the Bus reaches the School little late it should be considered. Because to reach in time every body over takes and drive at high speed to cover up the time.

Finally if they meet such accident..!!! who can avoid such accident.. who can help the children to restore to their original health..

Their Speed Limit for ALL SCHOOL BUSES should be restricted. by RTA.. to the safety level.. Reaching in time should be followed by starting early not by Racing the Vehicle..
Every body's co-operation is required on this.. then only this can be successfully implemented.. Our Prayers.. to all who has injured and their fast recovery.. Regards and GOD BLESS ALL SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM WITH FULL PROTECTION..

REGARDS..
