Man grabs wheel
An irate passenger onboard an Auckland bus grabbed the steering wheel, bringing the vehicle to a sudden stop on a busy main road. The incident is believed to have taken place on Monday, onboard a rail replacement bus travelling between Pukekohe and Britomart. In video of the incident, the man, who was not wearing a mandatory face-covering, can be heard shouting at the driver, complaining that she missed his stop. The bus stopping sign can clearly be seen illuminated in the video. After yelling for the driver to stop, the man then grabs the steering wheel and yanks it to the left as the bus comes to a violent stop. A spokesperson for Go Bus told the Herald that rail replacement buses only stop at train stations and not at other stops.
