      Kolkata: Old buses and trucks banned from city streets

      1600-h/ws-kolkata-bus.JPG> 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.
