First off, my condolence to the families of those killed in the accident
That was an accident waiting to happen.
Public buses to the highlands resort are often overloaded with passengers. Quite a number of them are also poorly maintained.
I once took such a bus to the resort and it was struggling going up the resort and was practically screeching when coming down.
Had it not been for the grace of existence we would all have died.
The road up and down the resort is not the most inspiring easy ride and on a wet or rainy day, it is a miracle for an overloaded and poorly maintained bus to make it safely going up and coming down.
The road is winding and twisting and at some places the incline is steep.
If you are not careful or not familiar, you could easily get into trouble.
It behooves the operators of public buses plying the route to and from the highlands resort to ensure that the buses are not overloaded with passengers and that at all times the buses are well maintained.
They must also ensure that their drivers are reliable and not overworked.
Anything short is negligence pure and simple.
