The Bulgarian National Assembly adopted amendments that require most buses in Bulgaria to be equipped with seatbelts and video recorders. The proposals are part of the measures in the Road Traffic Act initiated after the heavy bus crash near Svoge which claimed the lives of 17 people. According to the new regulations, the carriers have six months to equip their vehicles with safety belts and video recorders. They will be subject to fines if they fail to do that in the six-month period. Carriers which fail to keep the recordings of their video recorders will be fined with EUR 750. The companies will pay EUR 1,500 and their bus drivers will pay EUR 250 if they carry passengers on vehicles which are not equipped with seat belts.​
