Only 4 out of 54 school vehicles are safe
Johannesburg - Fifty out of 54 pupil transport vehicles were pulled off the road following inspections at the Krugersdorp testing centre on Thursday, the Gauteng community safety department said.
Defects in the vehicles included brake failure, worn-out tyres and shock absorbers, it said in a statement.
Only four vehicles of the 54 vehicles tested were passed.
Provincial MEC Faith Mazibuko said 78 Putco buses using the Moloto Road outside Pretoria were found to be unroadworthy during inspections last week.
"Sadly to say, some of these buses resumed operation," she said in a statement.
