      Kolkata: Old buses and trucks banned from city streets

       

      The Bengal government has acted to implement the Calcutta High courts decision to check road accidents and cut down pollution levels.

       

      Vehicles more than 15 years old to be taken off Kolkata's streets. Local environmentalists cheer.

       

      World Streets is not quite so sure. The ban would apply to about 2,500 buses, 500 mini buses and 6000 taxis, roughly one fourth of the total number in the city.

       

      We invite discussion and updates.
