Saw this in the news, "SBS Transit launches 'Flag the Bus Early' campaign"
SINGAPORE : The SBS Transit has placed signs at 100 selected bus stops across Singapore, encouraging passengers to flag the bus early.
This will help bus captains stop at a timely manner and to ensure a smoother and safer ride for those onboard.
The operator has launched the public education campaign after receiving complaints that bus captains drove off from bus stops without picking up passengers.
Its subsequent investigations found that many commuters missed the bus because they often flagged too late.
Commuters can also pick up brochures on safe bus stop practices at 16 bus interchanges. - CNA /ls
So people, it is YOUR fault, ok?
Some forummers from Hardwarezone felt that instead of a "Flag the Bus Early" campaign, there should be campaigns for bus companies like:
"Slow Down the Damn Bus When Approaching Bus Stop" campaign
"Do Not Overtake a Fellow Bus When Approaching Bus Stop" campaign
"Buses Come More Regularly and at Shorter Intervals" campaign
"Buses should brake properly" campaign
"Cut down Bus Hikes" campaign
and of course, this gem:
"Stop Wasting Money on Useless Campaigns" campaign
Feel free to suggest some more campaigns. In Singapore, we can never have too many campaigns.
