Travelling on an express bus is fast, convenient and cheap. But imagine having to watch an inappropriate movie, especially with children around, just because the bus company can’t be bothered to double check the suitability of the movie?

According to the New Straits Times, one annoyed Swedish passenger had called the paper up to complain. According to the passenger, the express bus she was on was screening a gruesome horror movie, which was totally inappropriate for young children on the bus.

The paper reported that long-distance and express bus operators can get themselves into trouble for screening inappropriate and unsuitable movies. The article said that all drives have been given guidelines on the movies to be screened during trips, and are only allowed to screen movies with material suitable for a general audience. Those who fail to follow the guidelines will be reported to the Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board (CVLB).

Passengers who find that the buses they are traveling in are screening inappropriate movies should call the number displayed in every bus to lodge a complaint.
