Bus Drivers Suffer from Frequent Attacks

One out of every 10 bus drivers and inspectors in regional transportation has been attacked physically. One out of five has been threatened with death; one out of 14 has been threatened with a weapon; and, 75% have been insulted. These are the results of a poll taken by the NIPO firm among 1,600 members of a trade union. Trade union executive Wyb Kusters says that employers must do more to ensure the safety of their employees and cancel services where necessary.
