Chinese school buses to have GPS to boost security
Img/2012/2/24/bus-256.jpgBeijing: Satellite-based tracking system will be installed in all school buses in China`s northwest Gansu province in a bid to boost security amid a surge in road accidents involving students.



Education, traffic and police authorities in Gansu have jointly initiated a school bus safety management organization in the wake of a deadly school bus crash that claimed 21 lives last November, said Zhou Zhongping, the deputy director of the provincial safety supervisory bureau.



In 2011, a total of 1,505 people died from traffic accidents in Gansu. The death ratio per 10,000 vehicles was twice the national average in the province.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) will help cut down on deadly accidents in the province.



According to the plan, all school buses are required to have satellite positioning functions installed by the end of this year, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.



Long distance buses, chartered travel buses and dangerous chemicals loading vehicles should also be equipped with satellite positioning devices.



Gansu will apply digital information management to all of these vehicles.
