Reckless bus driver being sought out - Video below



 The state-run Transport Company is looking for a bus driver who was shown in a widely-shared video clip driving a fully-packed bus with one hand holding a lunch box and the other hand either holding the steering wheel or spooning rice from the box.

The incident took place on Wednesday the Udon Thani-Khon Kaen-Nakhon Ratchasima bus as it was heading for Nakhon Ratchasima from Khon Kaen. It was VDO taped by a passenger using a smartphone.

The unnamed passenger then posted the clip on his Facebook page with a description saying that the incident occurred on the Friendship highway on a bus to Nakhon Ratchasima from Khon Kaen.

He said the driver whose identify was unknown used his left hand to a hold a lunch box and his right hand holding the steering wheel and occasionally freeing from the steering wheel to hold the spoon to put rice into his mouth.

The clip also showed several passengers sit next to the driver, indicating that the bus was overloaded with passengers.

Mr Prasanti Khaoplod, the Nakhon Ratchasima bus terminal chief, said he had instructed one of his officials, Mr Siva Booonthammakul, to find out the driver and to summon both the driver and the bus-owner to his office.

He said that the driver would face charge of reckless driving and overloading the bus with passengers beyond the permissible limits.

What can the driver or the conductor do about people showing up with tickets issued specifically for their tour with the bus number on them? Send them back to the ticket office to exchange those for a later bus?  :-[
