    Bus drivers in the Bay of Plenty have been caught speeding 271 times during the past three years

    Bus drivers in the Bay of Plenty have been caught speeding 271 times during the past three years


    One bus driver was even caught doing 132 kilometres per hour, in a 100 k zone

    The breaches of speech limits in the Western Bay, Rotorua, Taupo, and Eastern Bay of Plenty areas -- between 2018 and 2020 -- have resulted in almost 25-thousand dollars worth of fines.

    The regional council says the breaches are an employment issue, between the bus operator and driver.

    But First Union says it's a sign of the pressure and time constraints drivers face.
