PUBLIC SERVICE LICENCE - absolute presence of mind - the ability to work with people under strenuous condititions - the ability to exercise extreme caution at all times - most importantly absolute sobriety. These are the key qualities lacking in most of our public transport drivers.

Hey whats going on? Almost every day we hear that young school children are being involved in serious accidents. Is it not time that this goverment did something regarding the drivers of the vehicles to ensure that they are reliable and considerable drivers. How experienced are these drivers and how long have they been licened to drive. It seems to be very easy these days to obtain a drivers licence, it can be bought for R 3800 no questions asked.
