Bus safety rules get a revamp

- +

The Land Transport Department is looking to enforce regulations this month to ensure the safe operation of double-decker buses and strict screening of drivers. 

The measures were confirmed on Tuesday by department chief Asdsathai Rattanadilok na Phuket amid growing concerns over the bus' safety after 29 people were killed and 23 were injured in an accident involving a double-decker bus in Tak on March 24.

The department has come up with proposals to increase safety, including tougher criteria for approving driving licences for drivers of double-deckers and the installation of more safety equipment on the buses.
