Public opinion sought on draft safety standards for school buses


08:45, December 28, 2011

BEIJING, Dec. 27 (Xinhua) -- Four draft safety standards for school buses began receiving public feedback on Tuesday, marking the latest instance of China's efforts to improve school bus safety following a string of accidents.

This also marks the first time that the country has made national safety standards for preschool buses, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said in a statement on its website.

Car seat safety standards for primary school buses will be extended to all school buses that carry teenage students, the statement cited the draft regulations as saying.

Public feedback is welcome on the drafts until Jan. 8, 2012.

China reported a string of school bus accidents in recent months, prompting the country to introduce new safety regulations and standards for school buses and improve the design, production and distribution of the vehicles.
