A Saudi school bus was caught on camera moving at nearly 170kmph on a motorway in the Gulf Kingdom amidst reports of recurrent deadly accidents involving these buses.
A Saudi man who was driving on that road in the southern Jizan province said he used his mobile phone to film the bus, but it was not clear if there were students in the bus.
The man, who sent the film to ‘Sabq’ newspaper, turned the camera to the mileage in his car to show that the bus was doing 170kmph.
“I was driving at 160 and still could not catch up with the bus. I increased speed to nearly 170kmph to come close to it,” he said.
