    KSRTC buses? seriously? well I guess then they better these details to the display board as well:

    'when the driver is going to slam the brakes',
    'when he's going to fly over bumps',
    'when he's going to weave across lanes like a madman',
    'how much longer he's going to keep his foot on the damn gas pedal on the NH which cause the damn vibration tickling you upto the fluid inside your ears'..

    ahem.. I guess then they won't have any place for passengers, all this display information will take up the entire space. :D

    If it's private buses, then it will be filled with display information :lol: eg: 'when is the driver going to stop in the middle of the road and scream through his window at another bus driver who has stopped his bus also in the middle of the road and screaming back through his window. :lol:

    Thanks for the info.

    @Cyrus_the_virus

    No, it is not KSRTC, this is for private buses.

    I saw the news in today's newspaper but not much info as the post here.
