Bus operator Tower Transit Singapore told Stomp that it is counselling and disciplining one of its drivers for running a red light along Telok Blangah Road.

Several readers alerted Stomp to the video showing bus service 97 speeding up to run a red light just before Sentosa Gateway.

In the video that was uploaded by Facebook user Norman Cheng on Monday (Dec 16), the driver also overtakes a taxi without indicating.

It is unclear when exactly the incident happened.

In response to a Stomp query, a Tower Transit spokesman said: "We are aware of the incident and the driver in question is being counselled and disciplined.

"The safety of our passengers and other road users is Tower Transit's top priority.

"Members of the public who witness unsafe acts on our buses are encouraged to write in to our customer experience team."

The police confirmed with Stomp that investigations are ongoing.
