On the way back to Penang from Kuala Lumpur last week, CJ Jimmy Leow was amazed with traffic condition along the North South Expressway. It was smooth sailing all the way to Penang.
So, the citizen journalist from Penang decided to check on how buses behaved when there was so much temptation to make up time by increasing speed. To his surprise, 80% of the buses he tailed behaved and drove within their speed limit, 90 km/hr on the expressway, except for one.
We tend to forget that ten innocent people were killed in a horrible accident involving a double decker bus, about five kilometers from the Jelapang toll plaza in December 2009.
The public should report irresponsible bus drivers who use the highway as their racing track. Note down the registration number, date and time, report it to the related authorities and you probably save some precious lives along the way.
