Reading: A Letter of Complaint Unsur Bahasa: Penggunaan quite, too, enough dan very Language Function: Ungkapan Perkenalan

Dear Sir,
I have to travel everyday from the bus stop near the City Hall to the port. Two buses travel along this route; the number 2 and the number 11. However by the time the number 11 bus reaches the City Hall, it is always full, so I use the number 2 which sometimes has empty seats on it.

The time table states that there are buses from the station to the port every ten minutes. If this is so why do I have to wait half an hour for a bus?

The regulations state that no bus may carry more than 40 seated passengers and 20 standing passengers. Yesterday I was the first to get off the bus when it reached the port, I counted the other passengers as they got off. There were 129 of them.

Clearly printed on the back of every bus a sign that says: Maximum speed 50 mph. On Saturday a number 2 bus traveled from the City Hall to the Hero Monument in 10 minutes. The distances 12 miles. The bus must have speeded at least 80 mph!

It is clear that our bus companies have no respect for the regulations nor passengers.

a. the following bus should start from the station an hour later after the previous bus b. a bus may carry more than 40 seated passengers and 20 standing passengers c. The driver should speed his bus at the maximum speed of 50 m.p.h. d. The driver may stop the bus anywhere he likes
