“Analysis of the vehicle’s speed record identified instances of speeding beyond the legal limit of 80kph for Public Service Vehicles… The Authority has also revoked the Driver’s Class A endorsement and PSV license,” NTSA said.
The authority further said that the bus in question and all other vehicles belonging to Rengcom Company to will undergo Motor Vehicle Re-inspection to verify the functionality of their speed governors.
