Extra safety provisions for the Stint
In the Netherlands, Minister of Transport and Infrastructure, Cora van Nieuwenhuizen, has taken some extra safety measures for the Stint, after a lethal accident with the special type of cart last year in Oss.
From now on, the vehicle only can take 8 passengers on board and it needs to be equipped with safety belts and an extra brake. “The safety of driver, passengers and other road users is a priority”, says van Nieuwenhuizen.
Possible next steps will follow, like a mandatory driver’s license or number plate.
