Title

Bus hopping on Half Way Tree Road

Description

"Illegal ride: bus hopping in the Corporate Area is again on the increase as these boys indicated along Half Way Tree Road yesterday. What the youngsters don't seem to realize is that they are flirting with death. Shortly after this picture was taken some buses went off the road for a while following the breakdown of an enquiry into charges preferred against workers of the Company. At the enquiry it was decided that a worker should remain on suspension pending police enquiry and court hearings. normalcy was restored at about 7:00 p.m."
