The horrifying reports of a bus accident in Douglasdale, Johannesburg this morning involving 100 children of which 32 were injured once again highlights the urgent need for regular scholar transport inspections.

The DA urges the Gauteng Education Department to ensure provincial and local law and traffic enforcement agencies conduct regular inspections on scholar transport vehicles to guarantee all vehicles abide by the minimum safety standards and traffic laws.

I wish those injured a speedy recovery.
