Authorities consider restrictions on dangerous long-distance vehicles

The sleeper bus, a unique public transportation means in China, may disappear from the roads in five or six years, and restrictions on its use are being considered to prevent more accidents from happening, a senior official said.

In the early hours of Sunday, 36 people in a sleeper bus were killed when it rammed into a tanker carrying methanol, a highly flammable liquid, and caught fire on a highway in Shaanxi province.
