The requirement for second bus drivers for long distance travel is here to stay


Liow: Second driver ruling for long distance buses mandatory

 
BENTONG: The requirement for second bus drivers for long distance travel is here to stay, says Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai .
"It is not to make life hard for bus operators. The safety of passengers is our first priority," he said in response to criticisms from Peninsula Malaysia Bus Drivers Association president Sa'adan Man who called the ruling unfair.
According to the present ruling, buses travelling more than 300km or four hours require a second driver.
"A driver may not be able to focus if he drives more than four consecutive hours and this will jeopardise passenger safety," Liow said during the pre-launch of the 2017 Visit Pahang Year campaign held at Karak Highway's Bentong toll plaza on Sunday.
He said the Transport Ministry is willing to listen to suggestions from the association but the present ruling is here to stay.
