A school bus transporting children to school in Skulsk (Greater Poland Voivodeship) was unfit for driving. This was demonstrated by an inspection during which inspectors of the Provincial Road Transport Inspectorate in Poznań found a number of irregularities. One of the most serious was taped windows. Instead of going to school, the bus was directed to the workshop.
On Friday (March 24), inspectors from the Provincial Road Transport Inspection in Poznań from the branch in Konin inspected buses transporting children to school in Skulsk. As it turned out, one of them was so defective that it was not suitable for further driving. The inspectors only allowed him to drive – at a limited speed – to the nearest workshop.
“The reason was the lack of position lights and direction indicators on the upper lamps at the rear of the vehicle. However, a more serious defect was the detached two side windows of the bus on the left side next to the passenger seats” – the Provincial Road Transport Inspectorate in Poznań reported in a press release.
The windows were glued with tape
As reported by the WITD, the windows were temporarily glued with tape and loosened. And posed a threat to passengers. “This could have led to the window falling out or being pushed out by passengers” – the inspectors point out.
“Inspectors seized the registration document and the driver received a fine. The vehicle may not carry passengers until the violations are removed” – informed the Provincial Road Transport Inspection in Poznań.
