'Bus Day' is celebrated as a thanksgiving to the driver and the conductor who are regulars on a particular college route.
Over time, the celebrations have turned into a nuisance for the public with students forcing the driver to drive the vehicle very slowly, thereby blocking the traffic on busy roads.
The Madras High Court has come down heavily on Bus Day celebrations several times. The police too had issued warnings against the celebrations.
