Complaint on conduct and service performance of SBS bus drivers
Posted by temasektimes on April 25, 2012
To all concerned:
At about 9.10am this morning (April 24th 2012), my mother (in her 60s) and another elderly lady were attempting to cross the pedestrian crossing at Choa Chu Kang Ave 4, from Block 341 towards the direction of the Post Office .
When the lights turned green, they took about three steps out onto the road. At this point in time, the bus, license number SBS 212 came speeding along Choa Chu Kang Drive and made the turn into Choa Chu Kang Ave 4, and the green man was not even blinking as it has just turned green.
It was by sheer presence of mind and luck that they managed to jump out of the way in time to avoid being mowed down by the speeding bus.
As it was too fast, they couldn’t see the Route Number of the bus, but they did manage to see the driver, described as a fair-skinned Chinese man, give them a condescending look as he passed by. As subjective as that description may be, this atrocious driving style and blatant disregard for human life is extremely dangerous and the frequency, disturbing, to say the least. And it is hardly the first incident on record.
How does SBS train their drivers?
How many more have to die before rectifying action is taken?
Please investigate and have a response for this near fatal accident.
