"PETALING JAYA: The usage of double-deckers on Malaysian highways and roads is being questioned, with some pointing out that such vehicles were designed for short city routes and not long distances.
Federation of Malaysian Consumer Associations (Fomca) wants Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (Miros) to check the suitability of using double-deckers on highways. Miros also slammed the industry and Government for not having the political will to enforce compliance with the Safety, Health and Environment Code of Practice (Shecop).
Its deputy secretary-general Ratna Devi Nadarajan said more fatal accidents like that of Saturday’s double-decker bus crash could occur if the country continued to depend on self-regulation."
Saya setuju benar. Bila tengok bas itu beroperasi di atas jalanraya dan lebuhraya pun kita dah takut ... nampak benar tak stabil langsung. Jelas tak sesuai penggunaannya di Malaysia kita ni.
Memang ramai orang dah komen perkara yang sama sejak bas dua tingkat ini beroperasi. Tapi biasalah, bila dah jadi tragedi ngeri baru ada reaksi dari pihak atasan! Lama sikit lagi semua diam balik la!
