BANGKOK — The public square that is Pantip.com has again proven an effective place to name and shame after a video showing a bus driver’s violent rampage led to his being gently fined and suspended.
In the video posted Sunday, Pantip user Kolia described being attacked by the driver of bus No. 524 after he confronted him over skipping a stop prior to the final stop near Wat Pho where the passenger had been waiting for a ride. In the video, a scowling man in a bus driver uniform is seen in full-tilt rage attempting to throw a road sign at the cameraman.
“I intended to ask and also speak for the passengers to let him know if the bus doesn’t stop at its stop, we are affected,” Kolia wrote.
