Regulating Party BusesDownload audio (MP3)
A 25-year-old woman was killed on Highway 17 near Los Gatos after being ejected from a party bus last Friday. The buses have drawn criticism recently for allegedly ignoring underage drinking on board and for dropping their rowdy passengers at nightclubs or suburban neighborhoods that don't want them. Should party buses be more strictly regulated?
