Hong Kong roads are generally safe but there does seem to be a recurring theme of tired, old and badly trained drivers crashing buses.
Not worry the Road Safety People aren't asleep at the wheel because they are cavorting around in an open top bus.
There are many small changes that could be made to improve the lot of the average bus driver but alas all we can muster as a society are thoughts and prayers along with the demonising of a driver who was only part way through his shift (10 hours of upto 14 hours) and X Days of continuous work. I still do not blame the driver. Oh also handing out don't take drugs and drive in an open top bus. Incompetent and tasteless.
I may have missed it in all this discussion but did anyone else say anything about the miracle of the German tourist who was the passenger in the taxi who only suffered light injuries and returned to their hotel?
I was shocked after seeing how smashed that taxi was and that the driver did not survive. Since the front of the taxi was open does anyone know if the taxi driver had gotten out of the car to look at the engine and that is why he died but the passenger survived? The tourist must have been wearing a seat belt for sure.
