DRUNK BUS DRIVER DROVE SBS BUS ON HIS NORMAL SHIFT, MIRACLE NO ACCIDENT OCCURRED

Ever heard of drink driving, but this time the driver was actually a SBS Transit bus driver, driving a public bus service? This was what actually happened on June 29 last year.

SBS Transit bus driver Nagibullah Raja Saleem was so drunk he nodded off at the wheel, missed bus stops, and even veered his bus into oncoming traffic, almost crashing into several vehicles. Some of his passengers shouted at him, but he brushed them off. To add insult to injury, he even drank vodka from a bottle during the journey, having had alcohol before his shift began. He was so drunk that five hours after he stopped driving, his alcohol levels were still 2.4 times above the legal limit.

Footage of his drunk driving revealed that he drove recklessly by beating several red lights, occasionally dozing off at the wheel, swerved into other lanes or the road shoulder, and missed designated bus stops more than once, at one point allowing passengers to alight near a kerb along a bend on the road, rather than the bus stop.

SBS DRIVER SLAMMED BUS DOORS ON OLD MAN, REFUSED TO APOLOGISE OR HELP

81 year old Lee Hak Ngee was going home from his eldercare centre when an SBS bus slammed its doors on him. The incident caused him excruciating pain which he described as a "knife slicing him". His middle and ring fingers were injured because of this.

Mr Lee was waiting for the passenger in front of him to board bus 113 when the doors shut and injured him. It was only when he shouted that the bus captain noticed and opened the doors.

The driver did not apologise or rush to help the old man. Instead, he only told him to see the doctor and give him a call afterwards. Mr Lee had no choice but to tap his ezlink and sit down again.

Mr Lee is a heart patient who also suffers from diabetes. Even if he was not a patient, surely the bus captain could have helped him and not leave him in the lurch?
