TRANSIT says:

Our hearts and prayers go out to the loved ones of those who lost their lives or were injured as a result of this senseless tragedy.

Every time this has happened, and every time we respond to tragedies like this we always hope that it will be the last time. Sadly, the tragedies never seem to end.

Careless driving, poorly designed roads and unsafe buses run by profit-making bus operators are causing carnage on our roads. Our government sits by and lets things continue to happen without positive intervention.

We can only hope that the dissolution of the Ministry of Entrepreneur & Cooperatives Development will be a prelude to the dissolution of the Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board – the government agency that has brought the “entrepreneurial” spirit into public transport and failed millions of Malaysian road users and public transport users thorough poor management and inaction.
