A bus driver in Phuket has been criticised after video footage showed him letting his young son take the wheel so he could use his mobile phone.

The person who posted it said she booked a ticket with the Phatthalung Thaksin bus company on Friday to travel from Phuket to Phatthalung. When she made the booking she was told that the bus was fully booked but that the driver may be able to find extra seating room for her.

However, when she got on the bus there was only standing room. She complained to the driver and was told to sit on the ledge behind the driver’s seat, where three other passengers were already sitting.

During the journey, the woman noticed that the driver had his son sitting on his lap and that he appeared to be “teaching his son how to drive”.

To make matters worse, the driver later let the son take the wheel so he could make a video call on his mobile phone.

People commenting on the video criticised the driver and called on the authorities to take action.
