The head of an organization representing B.C.’s limo drivers is demanding answers after the bizarre death of a woman on a party bus in downtown Vancouver Saturday night.
BC Limousine Association director Sarb Nagra is asking whether it could have been prevented, after a 23-year-old Surrey woman fell out of the moving vehicle and died near West Hastings and Burrard.
“What happened, and what do we need to do as a industry to prevent that from happening again?”
Nagra says the party bus industry will take a substantial hit.
“A big setback, now it’s almost graduation time again, and people are going to think many times before they are going to book a party bus or anything.”
Since 2015, operators have had to apply for a special license to drive a party bus, and there are strict rules around alcohol, but some critics are renewing calls for on-board party bus chaperones after three related deaths in B.C.
