Egged drivers disable controls that limit buses speed

A member of the Egged cooperative said that while the new model 404 bus required a mechanic to detach the devices, the 303 model's can be detached simply by pulling out a plug.

He said the buses sometimes travel at more than 75 miles per hour.

Egged spokesman Ron Ratner responded that the cooperative's secretariat would only deal with complaints filed by those persons who are willing to identify themselves.
