  1. The fallout over inflation continues. Bus drivers are clearly cutting corners to keep themselves afloat and to keep their vehicles on the roads. Clearly this is a gamble since you risk losing your vehicle, your life and the life of others. The government needs to act quick and put in place safeguards to prevent this from occurring so frequently. Perhaps bi-annual vehicle inspections should be necessitated for operators of public transports. Otherwise it’s only a matter of time before we have a repeat of the tragedy that took the lives of 16 people in 2011. That said I’m not going to hold my breath.

  2. How often are these vehicles service? M404 over took several vehicles on the Millennium Highway. It almost had an accident. Can someone look into this.

  3. M404 overtook how many vehicles almost resulting in an accident.. how many persons on board cautioned him????

  4. Too many of us act as we don’t know that many of our bus drivers are the worst road users in this island! People curse at them everyday for their disregard for the rules of driving, and the many “near-misses” that are caused by their reckless use of the roads! Many of them fail to pull over properly at the bus stops, and when they are leaving the bus stops, they recklessly cut back into the road even though other drivers are in the process of driving by them!

  5. Really??? Reason unknown humm I can bet the bus malfunctioned because it was overdue for a Service. I boarded a La Toc bus and the idiot driver was speeding as soon as we “Took off” when we got to Kaycees on Brazil Street, I asked him to put me down because of his recklessness. He refused so I had to scream at him and he stopped on the bridge. I still paid him because I find not want any issues with him and I also wasn’t sure if he was drunk. Sadly I DID NOT get support from the “sit-you-ears “passengers as they were upset that I disembarked but I knew I was safe and prayed for the idiots who were on the bus with me.
