Cyril Appajala, Traffic Controller, explained that for some time, some buses are complaining about unfair competition engaged throughout the island. "We've had complaints from bus operators that evoke unfair competition. We immediately set up a team, "he says. The team includes officers of the NTA and police officers. "We made 25 violations in Port-Louis, Centre de Flacq, Belle Rose and Quatre Bornes," says Traffic Controller.
Among the offenders: eight of them are drivers of private cars, eight were driving 'Contract bus, and drove the remaining nine private vans.
