While a Division Bench directed action against con tract carriages which violate safety standards and sought details of vloggers who promote use of such vehicles , a single judge said the deleterious element of reckless driving needs to be addressed to prevent the roads from turning in to ” killing fields ” . The Bench , in the morning , took up the accident issue after noticing that the tourist bus which the students were travelling in was violating various safety standards as well as the court orders against use of LED or laser or neon lights , high – power audio systems , graphic de signs on the vehicle body and multi – toned horns .

The Bench of Justices Anil K Narendran and PG Ajith kumar also noted that despite its orders against use of such vehicles , especially to ferry students , various vloggers were posting videos on YouTube and other online plat forms promoting contract carriages with unauthorised fittings and high – power audio system , among others , flouting safety standards .
