RTD and the Traffic Police Department..PLEASE DO YOUR JOB!!

I am stumped by the recent sudden increase in the number of traffic accidents involving express buses trough out the nation. The whole nation is in fact stumped by this whole bunch of cases suddenly happening one after another. What is this?

After the accidents has happened, only then do the relevant authorities do some research and find out that the the buses involved in the accident had various summons issued and had been black listed. Come on!. Why not do a thorough check on all the buses on a daily basis to ensure that they are safe to travel and free from any summons what so ever. Do you have to wait till one crashes into a ravine and killing 20 passengers before you actually do your job?

This is absolutely absurd. It really shows the level of thinking and the way the RTD and the Traffic Police department are managed and how they carry out their job. Absolutely pathetic!!

They are going around the nation focusing on carrying out their 'anti-rasuah' campaign and neglecting their main priorities which is on the transportation network of Malaysia. I mean, if they are really carrying out their job, they should know that some of the buses had accumulated 50+ summons and they should be barred from the roads of Malaysia. I mean, it is them who issued the summons in the first place right? Do we have to witness these gruesome accidents before actions are taken against these unscrupulous bus drivers and their employers? Why not prevent it from happening in the first place? Isn't prevention better than cure?

Seriously, I think that the RTD and the Traffic Police department of Malaysia is in serious need of overhauling and it should be done as soon as possible to prevent further mishaps.

Coming to think of it, some of the buses involved in these accidents has over 100 summons issued to them. Some has also been black listed. If one were to think of it logically, don't you think that some sort of bribery is also involved in these cases? I mean, if they have 1 or 2 summons, then it could be a case of 'close one eye' or something. But 50 or 100 cases? Think of it my fellow readers. I let you be the judge of that.

Malaysian Parliament, Pathetic!!

Recently I had the chance of viewing a couple of footage taken during meetings held in the parliament and I have to say, the conditions in those meetings were worst than a primary school classroom. MP's and even ministers could be seen shouting at each other at the top of their lungs. They were also using words which are inappropriate to be used in a parliament meeting such as 'stupid', 'bodoh' and even 'monyet'.
This is extremely disgraceful and it seriously damages the image of Malaysia in the eyes of the other nations. I mean, if ministers in other nations can have a peaceful meeting and settle their differences amicably, why can't our MP's and ministers do the same?. It is alright to have a discussion or debate but shouting and calling people names would not settle the matter would it?.
These people are elected to lead the nation and if this is their behavior, I seriously suggest that they step down and let other more capable and dignified candidates take over. I mean, they were arguing over small matters which could be settled much more swiftly and in a more dignified manner with some careful consideration and rationale thinking rather than the way they settled it. It's embarrassing to say the least the way they discuss.
I have attended many parliamentary style debate competitions during my primary and secondary school and never once have I witnessed such acts depicted by the MP's and ministers in the parliament in these competitions even though it consisted of children and teenagers.
Therefore my dear Tan Sri/Datuk Sri/Datin Sri/Datuk/Datin, I really hope that you would change your attitude and find a more dignified and mature way of settling your differences in the parliament rather than shouting to each other as it is extremely embarrassing to not only the government but the citizen of Malaysia as well. Thank you
