For bus drivers, long routes, a lack of nutrition and bad sleeping habits may contribute to health complications.
Medical examinations have shown that at least 23 percent of the 146 bus drivers examined at Kampung Rambutan Terminal, East Jakarta, suffer from diabetes and hypertension.
“Only 77 percent of those examined passed, 23 percent did not," Kampung Rambutan Terminal head Emiral August Dwinanto said as quoted by tribunnews.com on Monday.
Emiral added that the health check-ups included physicals, blood tests and alcohol and drug tests.
“No driver tested positive for drug use," he said. (acr)
