13,000 unsafe school buses disqualified in China

Beijing, Jan 31 (IANS) School safety inspections in China disqualified 13,000 substandard school buses from service.

The inspections, jointly organised by the ministries of education and public security and the State Administration of Work Safety, also removed 32,000 unlicensed drivers from the job of driving school buses, Xinhua cited official figures as saying.

School bus safety is a perennial public concern in China, especially in remote rural areas where supervision is slack.

In May 2015, two children were killed and 21 injured after a kindergarten bus fell into a pond in Guangxi Zhuang region.

The vehicle was not licensed as a school bus and had not been subjected to an annual check. It was running with a twofold capacity when the accident happened.
