CCC files case against Ads in Buses

A non-governmental organisation has moved the Madras High court for a direction to the Tamil Nadu government to remove advertisements on the sides and rear of state public transport buses. In a PIL, Coimbatore Cousumer Cause, contended that the advertisements distracted road users and diverted their attention, particularly those in the vehicles following the buses. The advertisements were against the provisions of the Tamil Nadu Motor Vehicles Act and the State Motor Vehicle rules, it said.

Private buses too had started displaying advertisements, the PIl said.

When the petition came up for hearing, the first bench comprising Chief Justice H L Gokhle and Justice S N Ibrahim Khalifulla directed the government pleader to take instructions from the government and file a counter affidavit, if necessary.
