As per my experience with public transport,  many of these drivers are stressed by dealing with passengers all day long, everyday, for fullfilling with schedules not matter how traffic is, besides their own personal problems.  They vent driving fast. I've had some arguements with some of them for driving so fast, and exposing us. 

In some countries public transport consist in old, fully depreciated buses, crowded by all kind of passengers including thieves, if you complain they tell you: "Buy your own Car"
