GUIDE TO MINIBUS SAFETY

Driver fatigue and error were crucial factors in the M40 minibus crash. This leaflet for teachers, heads, school governors, youth leaders and voluntary workers, produced by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, recommends that, contrary to a recent Government decision, volunteer drivers should be subject to new European laws requiring a separate test and health check.
