    Your brain should be checked for "functionality".

    This is a standard excuse given by bus drivers. The breaks of the bus need to be checked for functionality.

    Investigate properly whether the brakes failed or driver had drunk as at Gampola lot of illicit liquor dealers around Ambuluwawa. (true statement)

    There is some requirments to check before drive the vhicle such as
    break,
    head light,
    signal lights,
    water level .etc

    The drive did do the basic checkups, the total fault is on drivers
