That is the tweet I posted earlier today from the MTC 18 K Deluxe that I boarded at Thousand Lights. Although it has been in office for three years now, the AIADMK Government has not been able to improve the Chennai bus service. It is still operating buses purchases years ago, and not maintained well. So bad is the situation that several passengers are reporting injuries regularly.
In photo above, also note the crude use of bolts and screws in the bodywork. This is quite common in Indian bus services, and they cause a lot of injury annually, since many buses are involved in minor and major accidents.
