(CMR) On January 16 Cayman Marl Road posted a video on our social media page titled Rogue Bus Drivers that was shared by a follower who was disturbed at what he saw that day.
We tagged the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service and others contacted The Public Transport Unit (PTU). The video received almost 4,000 views on our page alone and was shared with countless others.
The video show two large tour bus drivers speeding as they entered the Esterly Tibbetts Highway. One goes into the cycling lane overtaking the other. The driver who recorded them indicated to us they had been at it for some time before he was able to safely capture the video.
Our sources indicate that one driver was boosting that no action could be taken against him; despite both of them denying that the incident took place. However, the video proved to be compelling evidence and the PTU had a special meeting to deal with the matter.
We now understand that the PTU has suspended the two bus drivers.
