STOMPer David was travelling on the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) earlier today when an SMRT bus driver cut abruptly into his lane, almost causing an accident.
Said the STOMPer:
"Today I almost had an accident with a bus (No. 963) on the BKE highway towards Woodlands Checkpoint.
"He was already on the lane towards SLE Exit 8.
"But suddenly near the junction of the SLE exit, the bus driver changed lane abruptly back towards BKE highway without even signalling.
"I was exiting to SLE and had no choice but to avoid his bus swaying towards BKE highway. Luckily, there was no car on the other lane.
"When my car slowed down, I looked at his face.
"It was a foreign driver.
"He looked back at me as if he was doing nothing wrong.
"All the cars behind him also honked and high-beamed him as well.
"Yet he still changed lane back to BKE highway.
"What a dangerous driver!!
"Why allow this kind of dangerous drivers on the road??
"Does the authority even conduct necessary driving tests for foreign drivers before they are certified to drive the bus?
"I am afraid commuters are in the hand of dangerous bus drivers.
"Also their actions put other road users in hazardous situations."
