Why not have only early morning timings for college students?In the huge metro cities and even B class cities, a huge problem is the presence of hundreds or thousands of school vans and college buses trying to overtake each other in the peak hours. Most of them open for education at 8AM or 9AM and this poses a huge problem for smooth traffic.
There are accidents galore. Can we think of some unique solutions? Can we have colleges starting at 7.30 AM, so that they can close rather early? The breakfast timings could be between 8.15 to 8.30AM. In a famous group of colleges in Chennai, the students do get to eat healthy breakfast provided by the college itself, as part of the fees. This saves the parents precious time in the morning.
Even if the college does not provide such food, the students, who would be more than 18 years old, can easily board the city buses or even reach colleges on time, using their own vehicles. The law should be amended to enable license to be given to use mopeds when one turns 17. The schools may start at 8.30AM or even at 9AM. If this is done, there will be less traffic and it may be easy to regulate peak hour traffic.
