İBB President Ekrem İmamoğlu, Kabataş-Mahmutbey Metro Line spoke about the public bus accident in Beşiktaş at the tunnel completion ceremony. İmamoğlu said, "We will not be given an opportunity to monopolize" on Public Buses.
Imamoglu, Besiktas was a terrible accident that killed an Istanbulite last day. The deputy chairman of the chamber also stated that some officials claimed that there was no camera recording inside the bus and that the camera was defective. But an image appeared. On the day of the accident, the driver appears to disturb the image. Have you seen these footage? How will there be a follow-up process from now on? How do you interpret the distortion of these images?
I watched the footage. I follow closely. I'm going to visit the relatives of our fellow countrymen who died. I would like to express my condolences to his family. I wish mercy from Allah. It's very sad, and you can't bring that life back. Because of what? This situation has been reached because of the violence and anger caused by a driver. Whoever is in the professional chain and in the ring, especially us, should look at it with the utmost care and strengthening the maximum control mechanism, which we have already initiated. And we have put in place a procedure in which more rigorous supervision is provided at a higher level of psycho-technical training and we are sensitive and will never forgive me. In this sense, everything takes time. Suddenly, you can't figure out some of the things that have accumulated. I see that statement of the chamber president as a reflection of the language of an existing culture. Sad, pity. How can you not think of that? How can you not focus on your main task? What are you focusing on? Who owns that bus? Are you focusing on him? Or do you benefit someone with your answer? There's only one thing we can do; 16 million people. These people's existence and property security. We have put in place a process that ensures that our president friend or every friend of ours is subject to a strict supervision and that regulates them, represents their profession well, treats their citizens well and provides maximum satisfaction in public transportation. This process does not immediately respond, we need a little time. Certain processes from the past to the present give rise to hardship in such a way that both annoys and upsets us. I wish God's mercy on our lost lives again.
“We will not recognize monopolization FIR
There are also rumors that there will be a new regulation on Public Buses. In the name of such a forward-looking measure or more stringent supervision, or do you consider joining the IMM and doing it yourself?
We have no decision to lift. We respect people's professional processes. In some cases, decisions can be made in the medium and long term. We are also working on the future, which at the end of this year we will have a large transport workshop. Here we will discuss all sectors and all stakeholders of transport. However, we do not have the decision to remove such public buses, but we have the following decision: Our stance against monopolization in itself is clear. It exists as a rule, but in the process different methods that belong to a person who is now talking on the field 60-70 bus and so on medik We have never allowed, we will not. It can be professionally protected, but it will be an area where we will not allow a commercial mechanism and monopolization. We have our organizations there. We have İETT, Otobüs A.Ş. This is reflected in some trades as nepotism, especially when the approach towards trades is strengthened by these and other mechanisms, especially in the narrow zone, that is, sometimes the shifting of some buses to other regions. Some trades can cause serious trouble. We will be able to make changes to this and other technical issues like this, but we have no decision to remove it.
VAR We have administrative sanctions ”
Deactivation of the camera in the car on the day of the incident is also entering karatma evidence. On the contrary, did you have any contact with the vice president who made a statement after the incident? Do you have sanctions? How will you proceed?
There are views that most of the public buses do not record cameras. Are we sure there's no record like this? My friends are doing a strict check again. It has to happen once. Plus a blackout process, the action of course is a forensic case. We have administrative sanctions. We will make corporate sanctions on that line, that bus owner and other elements. The room is a legal entity, and we cannot make a direct sanction to the room, but I have made a declaration and follow-up to our friend from the top screen in our relations with this city. I didn't feel the need to call him in that environment. Because our institution will do just what they need to do to discuss this sentence. We have no concessions.
