While the Gurgaon police are conducting several drives to sensitise commuters about traffic rules, a few unruly drivers refuse to budge.
On Thursday, a woman and her mother had a narrow escape when an IT company bus hit their car in DLF Cybercity area.
“I was driving back from Ambience Mall to my house, through DLF Phase-3, when I met with an accident outside the DLF Cyber Green Building. The bus driver seemed to be in an inebriated state. When I stopped the bus and asked the driver to come down, he refused,” the woman said, requesting anonymity.
She said, “Two people from the transport department of the company came out and asked me to clear the way. When I did not, they told the driver to run the bus over me.”
“After this, the driver and his associates escaped leaving the bus behind and I kept standing there for hours. I called the police who filed a complaint and towed away the bus,” she added.
“Later in the evening, I got a call from the owner of the bus pleading me to take the case back. I do not want to take legal action but I want the company to be aware of what happened and ideally terminate the contract with the bus operator,” the woman said.
