Accidents worry LTA

TWO separate bus-related incidents were recorded in the Western Division last week, and although there were no casualties reported, police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said both drivers alleged their brakes and steering had failed.

LTA spokesman Iliesa Sokia said the incidents could have been avoided and bus operators must be responsible enough to conduct regular checks of their buses.

He said LTA trusted bus operators to manage their business in good faith and honesty.

"We cannot be determining and dictating to them what to check on a daily basis," he said.

"To make this easy, the Quality Assurance Maintenance System is an LTA initiative established with bus operators to help guide them as they carry out their routine and daily checks and there are phases that bus operators must go through before being recognised as system-compliant.

"It's for meeting standards and ensuring buses are in top form every day."
