Literally near the board stating accident-prone zone. Tractor drivers loaded with the cane can barely see anything behind or sideways. The bus driver should have been alert. Having said that some of the worst drivers on road are tractor operators.
No Tractor has Tail Lamp / Reflectors on its Trolleys, which is a must for Safe standards.
Simple they think by having Lights/Reflectors of the main Engine part is Enough.
But they dont know the result of this, neither the RTO authorities who Inspect these Vehicles follow the Rules.
I Myself have experience this, for any running vehicle(with their average speed) its difficult to control when it notices all of a sudden a Trolley with no lights or reflection neither any signal.
The TRACTOR Owners / Drivers must be educated of this.
