    What a tragedy ! My condolences to those effected. I routinely travel by commercial bus in Brazil and consider it better and safer than driving on my own.

Many highways are two-lane, high speed, over-crowded with heavy truck traffic and risks are taken needlessly. Nevertheless, the typical bus driver is a skilled professionals who takes the responsibility seriously.
