This Entrepreneur and Cooperatives Development Minister Datuk Noh Omar is a numpty meaning embarrassing himself. What is the secret of not naming the bus company, at least the people will know, and may not patronise the services to ensure the drivers are more careful. Does he want more deaths before his conscience hurts. Common-lah Nor enough of your statistics, go down to the ground, check yourself how bus drivers flaunt all traffic rules, and you will be doing a good job.

Buses Of One Company Involved In Many Road Crashes – Noh

PUTRAJAYA, April 9 (Bernama) — The licence of the bus company involved in the fatal crash at the Seremban toll plaza Tuesday has yet to be suspended despite having a poor safety record.
Entrepreneur and Cooperatives Development Minister Datuk Noh Omar said this was because the Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board (CVLB) had yet to investigate three accidents involving the company as its representatives did not attend the inquiries or they were postponed.
“Under the CVLB Act 1987, we can only suspend the operating licence after an investigation has been conducted,” he told reporters at his office here Wednesday.
To overcome this, CVLB would be meeting in a fortnight to empower the minister to temporarily suspend the licence of public transport companies involved in crashes which caused death and injury until the investigation was completed.
Noh said the minister would also be empowered to suspend the licence of public transport companies having lots of traffic summonses and that warrants of arrest would be issued to the drivers.
“What is the benefit of suspending the bus licence after the bus is all smashed up and people have been killed,” he added.
The three road accidents which involved the same company were the one at the Sungkai toll plaza on Dec 18 which injured 19 people, at KM383.7 North-South highway near Behrang on Jan 25 where three people were killed and at KM396.7 North-South highway on Feb 2 which killed two people.
The bus crash at the Seremban toll plaza Tuesday killed a soldier.
Noh said the company, which operates 227 express buses, had collected 52 traffic summonses. The bus involved in Tuesday’s crash had 18 summonses and two warrants of arrest.
“The 18 summonses and warrants of arrest were issued to several drivers. The driver in Tuesday’s incident had only been working for three months.”
Asked about the planned RM100 million pig farm in Selangor, Noh said the state government should consider the sensitivity of Muslims and should not have it in Sepang but on Pulau Ketam which has a majority non-Muslim population.
“It is a gift from the Selangor government to the people in the state for voting them into office,” he added.
