‘Extremely Irresponsible’ Intercape Overtaking Dangerously, Driver Suspended

South African transport company Intercape has suspended one of its drivers after a video of him driving recklessly went viral. In the very short video, only 13 seconds, the bus is seen passing two trucks around a bend on solid double white lines.

The video was shared by a passenger called  Kiewiet Pretorius who said: “We travelled from Bloemfontein to Durban on December 13 on Intercape’s bus. This is how the driver had overtaken a few other cars. It is extremely irresponsible to drive like this with a bus full of passengers.”

After the video went viral, the company responded by suspending the driver.

Intercape management told TimesLIVE:  “The driver admitted that he was wrong in his actions. He was immediately suspended, pending a disciplinary hearing. Intercape regrets and apologies for the unfortunate incident.

“The management of Intercape can assure the public of Southern Africa that this is not the standard of service. Zero tolerance will be enforced.”

Please note, this happened on a bus that was travelling from Cape Town to Durban and not on one of the cross-border buses which travel between Zimbabwe and South Africa. However, please report any such reckless driving and drive responsibly over the holiday period.
