TAIPEI, Taiwan — The Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) said Monday it would compile a list of 100 one-day tours that must adopt a two-driver system by the 228 Peace Memorial Day holiday.

If their one-day tour is named, travel agencies must hire at least two drivers to take different shifts during the single trip, Political Deputy Minister of the MOTC Wang Kwo-tsai (王國材) said on Monday.

The tours must ensure that no driver is at the wheel for more than 10 hours or on duty for more than 12 hours.

If the travel agency cannot hire two drivers for one trip, it should arrange for tourists to take advantage of public transportation such as the railway or high-speed rail, Wang said.    [FULL  STORY]
