    Our fundamental right to live is being challenged on a daily basis by these murderous bus/ heavy vehicle drivers and nobody seems to care. It only took few MPs to get stuck in a lift for the GoSL to spring into action to replace the lifts spending considerable amount of public funds. It seems our lives has no value to them... it's only our vote and the taxes we pay that matters to them. How unfortunate our we to end up with such a political system?

    Now it has been a usual news everyday. Saddened but much worried about the road hogs.

    These kinds of Drivers' License should immediately be cancelled and Compensation should be higher while the Punishment should be a Lesson for others. Because this Story has become a daily news for which no prompt and strong action seemed to be taken.

    Wheels of the bus go round and found as the wheels of justice
