I am sure by now most of you have heard about the terrible tragedy that claimed the lives of another three innocent passenger. The bus driver involved had previously been summoned 13 times, but was still driving for the bus company Konsortium when the accident happened. How that guy managed to pass through the supposed safety net our government set up after last year’s horrific bus accident is beyond me.
This incident is significant to all of us, I am sure you or someone you are close with travels by long haul bus in this country. My brother routinely uses the bus service to move between his university in Kelantan and Penang, my home town. This CNY, my mother and brother will be traveling from Penang to KL via bus as well.
Friends of Nian Ning, one of the victim, thinks that enough is enough, and set up a petition online to plead the ministry of transportation to take actions to ensure that tragedy like this do not repeat itself.
I have signed the petition, it is the least I can do, shouldn’t you?
