The 'results' of corruption

More than hundreds of thousands Malaysians including private and public university/college students rely on express buses to travel. This number increases rampantly especially during festive seasons and semester breaks. It’s a fact that express buses are not that safe to travel nowadays since there are a lot of crashes reported by media frequently.

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.
