“Traffic is flowing smoothly right now,” he added.

It could be a mechanic taking to bus on test run which makes everything else superfluous and not worthy of ridiculous comment.

Was the police check point in Kathu at the road to Patong manned?  NO!
Check certifications of the bus?  NO!
And the unnamed driver fixed the brakes???   No!
The problem occurred because the driver has no knowledge of brakes.
And the unnamed driver could just leave like he did?  YES! 
Without any technical experts check up of bus?  YES!
Amazing Kathu RTP, amazing Patong Hill!!

How much RT...

by break failure they mean the driver as normal did not know how to drive and just drove all the way with the breakes on as normal and they over heated as normal. Then they blame the breaks. Oh well at least no one was hurt this time.  But same accident, same reason and still nothing being done since they said last time no buses on the hill during the day. Well it just shows how long anything last...
