How GPS Will Ensure Bus Passengers's Safety?

How Bus GPS Works1. Express bus drivers will not get away with reckless driving and speeding once a national centre is set up to monitor express buses via satellite. The soon-to-be-established hub will operate like an air traffic control centre and track buses fitted with GPS (Global Positioning System) devices 24 hours a day.

2. Above is the interactive diagram on how the GPS will ensure bus passengers' safety. It looks very doable. However, without proper monitoring, even a high-end technology can't solve express busses accidents on the road. Let's hope this is not just another "profitable-excuse" made by some party to take advantage of the situation.
