SAN FRANCISCO — Responding to several recent tour bus collisions and crashes in the city, a San Francisco Assemblyman announced legislation that would allow the city to conduct its own safety inspections, KRON4 reports.

The bill would give cities with large tourism industries the option to develop their own inspection programs as a supplement to state inspections conducted by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and overseen by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).

The bill is part of a package of legislation introduced this month inspired by a tour bus crash in Union Square in November that injured 20 people. The bus in that crash was not properly registered with the CPUC or inspected by the CHP, and while the company had passed an inspection shortly before the crash, a surprise inspection conducted shortly afterward found multiple violations.
