Violent driver, bus company must be suitably punished, says consumer group
A consumer group wants the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) to reveal the punitive measure it is taking against the express bus driver caught on video using his slippers to slap two passengers, whom he later forced out of the bus, for sleeping in his rest seat.
National Public Transport Users Association (4PAM) said the public needed to know that the bus driver and the bus company had been punished so that it was assured that such an incident would not occur again.
4PAM president Ajit Johl said the incident had made the people afraid to take the bus.
“We also want SPAD to reveal the name of the bus company so that users are able to make an informed decision on whether they would like to continue using the service.
“Above all, we want SPAD to take action against the directors of the bus company, who should be fined and made to make a public apology to the two victims.
“The victims should be compensated by the bus express company for the humiliation, duress and stress they went through, and all of these should be done in a fair and transparent manner,” he told The Malaysian Insider, today.
Ajit also called for SPAD to suspend the services of the express bus company.
