CityNews – A Youtube video (now removed) of a couple having sex in broad daylight on the lower deck of a double-decker bus recently surfaced online, causing uproar from offended commenters. The video was taken by someone driving their car who witnessed the act from outside the bus.

The Land Transport Department has launched an investigation into the footage and has found the bus appeared to be operating on an irregular route. Officials are trying to track down the operator of the bus, as well as when and where the incident took place. They hope bus operators will cooperate with their plans to install closed-circuit cameras on the buses throughout the country – right now, it’s estimated that more than 800 Thai buses have fully functioning CCTV systems in place.

If caught, the two suspects will face a fine of up to 5,000 baht each for violating the Transport Act and disturbing other passengers, as well as facing criminal action for performing obscene acts in public. So far, investigators only have a few clues about the incident from the Youtube video, one of which is that the woman, who was filmed on top of her male partner in his seat, is a blonde, and that the couple was clearly Western in appearance.
