A Facebook user uploaded videos of a bus driver smoking and replying text messages while driving

The videos were uploaded by a page named, Firdaus Wong Wai Hung (Official) yesterday, 26 December, around 2pm.

The status read, "Barangkali ini antara sebab kemalangan jalanraya berlaku. Merokok, membaca mesej dan membalas mesej ketika memandu. Tidak semua pemandu begini maka jangan kerana nila setitik rosak susu sebelanga. Rakaman sewaktu saya berada dalam bas Mayang Sari no plat JRU7400 dari TBS ke Muar. (This is why road accidents happen. Smoking, reading text messages and replying while driving. Not all (bus) drivers are like this but let's not let one bad apple spoil the bunch. This is my recording when I was in a Mayang Sari Bus with the plate number JRU7400 from Terminal Bersepadu Selatang (TBS) to Muar.)

The driver was seen focusing on his phone, holding on to it with both his hands, and texting in the first 16-second clip.

In the second video, he tries to juggle smoking, texting and driving, while looking at his phone instead of the road.

Just an hour after uploading the videos, Firdaus posted another status with a photo of his complaint to the Mayang Sari bus company.

The representatives from Mayang Sari's customer service had assured that they look into the matter and take the necessary actions after investigations are carried out.

They've also apologised and thanked Firdaus for making the complaint which would help them ensure that such things do not happen again in the future.

Not too long after, the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) contacted Firdaus for more information on the incident. They then emailed him saying that they are currently running investigations on the matter.
