the government announced Tuesday, following a crash that left 33 people dead.

On bus tours traveling on regular roads, a single driver is banned from covering more than 300 kilometers per day, Deputy Director General of the Tourism Bureau Chang Shi-chung (張錫聰) said on Tuesday.

Drivers covering mountain roads are limited to 200 kilometers per day, Chang said.

The rule changes have led to the cancellation of some one-day tours from Taipei and Kaohsiung to popular sites including Alishan National Scenic Area (阿里山) Wuling Farm (武陵農場), Cingjing Farm (清境農場), Qalang Smangus (司馬庫斯), Guan-Wu (觀霧) at the Shei-Pa National Park, Hualien, and Kenting (墾丁), after operators were unwilling or unable to hire a second driver.    [FULL  STORY]
