New Brunswick's daycares get new van rules
« on: January 20, 2009, 12:39:26 PM »
New Brunswick's daycare and preschool centres will soon be required to follow stricter guidelines to use 15-passenger vans.

The Department of Social Development issued a notice last week requiring registered children's care facilities to outfit their vans with winter tires from Nov. 1 to April 30.

The vehicles will also not be permitted to carry children on major highways or travel beyond a 25-kilometre radius from the school.

The vehicles will also not be allowed to transport children after 5 p.m. from December to February, and after 6 p.m. from March to November.

The new regulations, which will be enforced beginning Feb. 17, come following last January's tragic van accident that killed seven high school basketball players and the driver's wife.

Do mini school buses fall under this ban?

I don't know, as I haven't seen the full document. But I'd assume so simply because otherwise there would be no point for this to begin with.
