Bus drivers

Tomasi Boginiso, Nasinu
Wednesday, November 25, 2015

THERE are certain bus drivers in the Suva-Nausori corridor who are driving as if they are on a race track.They drive so fast that passengers seem uncomfortable in their seats and lose their glasses or hats in the process.

These buses overtake cars, trucks or whatever crosses their way and if there is a mishap with these buses God knows it will be a disaster.

Such drivers communicate very well if radars or LTA officers are in the area. I have witnessed on few occasions the red light being ignored. And some of these buses have a fare collector and DJ seated on the engine beside the driver, and if there are LTA officers or the police ahead, these boys quickly jump on the passenger seats when alerted by the drivers, but once passing the authorities, these boys jump back on to the hot seat.

The drivers also seem to have their mind blown away if there is a good looking member of the opposite sex among the passengers and seem to show off by speeding without a care in the world for the remaining passengers.

The relevant authorities should go undercover or find ways of solving these issues.
