Frequent casino bus crashes draw mounting safety scrutiny

Nation & World

Dr. Fong interviewed with The Seattle Times about casino bus tours. The interview followed a casino bus crash on October 23 that killed 13. The frequency of crashes like this has led to investigations and concerns that casino bus tours target vulnerable demographics. As Dr. Fong discussed in his interview, the bus tours tend to bring members of older, lower-income, minority communities to far away, rural casinos.
