From one of my correspondents in South America:

The poor countries have old cars, with many repairs who are out of rules from dealer, maybe this was something about Diesel filter, Diesel tank or brakes . . . When I see the video cameras to road control in U.S. is amazing see all the cars with new models, truck Ford F-150, high cost cars . . . The bus in which 32 children died transited without insurance SOAT and technical review . . . The driver of the accident bus in Colombia had no driving license, this is the reality of the poverty . . .  😦
