Senator Tito Sotto has proposed some drastic measures, together with a ban on old and dilapidated public utility buses on the roads, to forestall a repeat of the Nueva Ecija tragic bus mishap.

“Ibasura lahat na bulok o luma na bus at re-eksamin ulit lahat na professional licensed drivers,” Sotto tweeted on Wednesday (April 19).

Around two dozen passengers have been killed when a dashing bus fell right into a ravine in Nueva Ecija final Tuesday (April 18). Several others have been damage and are actually recuperating in a close-by city hospital.
