The district transport office organised a camp under Safe Vaahan Scheme at DAV School, Pakhowal road, on Thursday.
As many as 64 vehicles were checked for fitness and papers. Medical check-up and counselling of drivers and conductors running school buses was also held.
The highlight of the camp was appreciation for driver Manmohan Singh. DTO Anil Garg told Newsline, “Around six months back, this driver had a vehicle almost 15 years old and we told him to change it. He said that he would commit suicide but not change the vehicle as he had no money. His counselling was done and on Thursday he came with a new vehicle to the camp.” Garg added that five drivers had low vision and the principal concerned was informed to get them treated.
