Traffic police target long-distance buses in heat wave

Czech traffic police have been increasingly focusing on long-distance tourist busses in the heat-wave checking out the technical state of the vehicles, whether drivers are taking compulsory breaks and so forth. The driver of a Polish tourist bus on its way to Croatia was found to be intoxicated and had his driver’s license confiscated on the spot. According to a police spokeswoman, the majority of Czech bus drivers fail to take the required breaks, increasing the risk of accidents on the road.
