Wear and tear hits Venezuela transport system

Country's public transportation has been crippled by poor road conditions and rapidly ageing vehicles.

    Venezuela's public transport system is deteriorating severely. Not only are the roads battered by wear and tear, but many of the vehicles are ageing rapidly.

    To make the matter worse, a lack of spare parts in the country means many are forced to fix their vehicles using any materials they can find.
