Human life should not be taken lightly. The government must enforce the law immediately to curb further fatalities from the bus crashes. I just wonder how the accidents happen although inspections are carried out by JPJ thoroughly! Are there corruptions involved between the express bus companies, drivers, Malaysian Road Transport Department (JPJ) officers and police officers? I think you know the answer.
