St John Welcomes Bus Safety Inquiry

Elliot Steel |

St John Director of Clinical Operations Norma Lane welcomes the announcement by Transport Minister Phil Twyford that there will be an investigation into bus safety.

Ms Lane says in each of the three recent bus crashes ambulance officers have seen injuries that were preventable if passengers were belted in.

“We’re calling for improved safety standards including compulsory seatbelts on buses of an agreed definition.”

St John would be keen to participate in discussions with the Ministry of Transport and the New Zealand Transport Agency as they conduct the investigation.
