Highway tour bus companiesedit

After a fatal bus accident on April 29, 2012 where a bus bound for Tokyo Disneyland crashed into a wall on the Kanetsu Expressway in Gunma Prefecture killing seven and injuring 39 others,3 the ministry launched an investigation into highway bus companies From May to June 2012 it carried out inspections and found that 250 of 298 companies over 80% violated the Road Transportation Law, with 48 companies breaching it seriously and one even lending its name to another company Twenty-two companies broke the law by hiring drivers on a daily basis Among them, 15 companies hired more than one driver this way, which the ministry considered a "serious violation" The largest number of drivers hired by a company in this fashion was eight

192 companies were found to have broken the law by ignoring the maximum nine hours of work a day for drivers It also found 118 companies did not give proper instructions and supervision to drivers, including the provision of safety education Forty-eight companies did not perform roll call before their drivers started work, which should include an alcohol breath test The ministry considered some of these violations as serious depending on their frequency and extent "We would like to provide thorough instructions to the bus companies about their safety management," an official of the ministry's Road Transport Bureau said The ministry was considering whether to punish the violators and publish the inspection results of bus companies that are organizing tours this summer on its website4

New safety measures, due to come into effect as early as July 2012 prohibited travel agencies from brokering bus tours to third parties In the April 29 crash, two companies acted as brokers between the tour organizer and the bus operator5
