A defective brake, a muffler attached to the chassis with a chain and a window covered with foil – a bus with such defects was stopped by road transport inspectors at the entrance to Zakopane (Małopolskie Voivodeship). It also turned out that there were five more people in the vehicle than allowed by law.

A bus running between Zakopane and Nowy Targ was stopped on Tuesday. According to the Provincial Road Transport Inspectorate in Krakow, 28 passengers were being transported on the bus at the time of the inspection. The allowed limit for this vehicle is 23 people.

Broken muffler, broken brake

As the inspectors emphasize, “the technical condition of the vehicle was appalling.” The door of the bus was badly corroded, and the rear window was cracked and covered with advertising foil. The parking brake did not work either, after applying it “the vehicle was rolling freely on a flat, level road”.

The inspectors also noted a faulty exhaust system. The exhaust pipe was severed directly at the muffler, and the muffler itself was “attached to the chassis with a chain, wire and furniture bolt, which caused the risk of falling off the vehicle.”

“Administrative proceedings were initiated against the carrier, punishable by a fine of PLN 2,000, the registration document was seized and further driving was prohibited, the driver was fined PLN 1,700 in total for the improper technical condition of the bus and for transporting people in excess of the number entered in the registration document. The driver did not accept the ticket in the scope of the excessive number of passengers carried, and therefore a request to the court for punishment was filed, informs the Provincial Road Transport Inspectorate in Krakow.
