    It’s the trailer which was wrong  and killed an innocent Bus driver.  I agree on learning defensive driving skills as the bus driver may have eluded the oncoming trailer,. But  looking at the scene  such trailer would have killed passengers instead. Too bad.
    Advanced driving skills really helped me , in driving on snaky mounteneous roads for over five years, without an accident, not even hitting a stone.  Even on high speedy roads in Johanesburg, 

    This is foolishness you guys. In developed countries , we stayed long without reading about an accident, now you guys here, it’s almost every day. How can someone with such a trailer try to improperly overtake? RTSA must be strict in issuing driving Licences nowadays.

    Speed Kills 2 weeks ago

    The problem with most of these Busses is Speed. They need to be retrained in Defensive Driving so that even if it is the other Driver who is wrong, they are able to avoid a Collision. A driving Licence alone is not enough. There should be Additional Authorisation to Drive Passenger Busses. There should be Regular Examination so that those who fail the Exams have their Permission to Carry Passengers Cancelled. What about Governors to controll Speed and other Technological Innovations. Alcohol Analysers also when leaving and entering the City.

    Divine Intervention 2 weeks ago

    How come the “Gospel” Music or Videos which play on almost all these Buses does not provide Divine Intervention? Is it because they are encrypted with messages or instrumentation which is hidden or perversive? We should turn to Worshiping the Lord in Truth and in Spirit. Thy shall not use the Name of the Lord in Vain. Lesa te wa ku twala ko amasange. These Transporters mostly play this Music on their Buses so that if something goes wrong, they are not accused of having Sacrificed others.

    My brother, in this accident, it was not the bus driver who was impatient and in the wrong…..it was the truck driver who was overtaking and misjudged the distance where the approaching bus was!
