 Expert in Criminal Law: the death penalty for driving a bus driver is the highest.


Peng Xinlin, deputy secretary-general of the Chinese Society of Criminal Law and professor of the Academy of Criminal Law Sciences of Beijing Normal University, said that passengers were suspected of endangering public safety by dangerous means when they started to drive buses because of disputes.

Peng Xinlin explained in an interview with Yangcheng Sent today that the crime of endangering public safety by dangerous means is an act crime, that is to say, the establishment of the crime does not take the actual consequences as a prerequisite, as long as the perpetrator has relevant acts, it can be punished.

Peng Xinlin analysis, in the bus, passengers and drivers for trivial disputes, if only insults, generally do not pursue criminal responsibility, the most is public security punishment. However, in the running buses, passengers act on the driver because of disputes is an act that endangers driving safety and the safety of most peoples lives and property, and constitutes a crime of endangering public safety by dangerous means.

Article 114 of the Criminal Law of our country stipulates that if the public safety is endangered by arson, water bursting, explosion, poisonous, radioactive and infectious diseases pathogens or by other dangerous means, and the consequences have not yet been serious, the offender shall be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of not less than three years but not more than ten years. Article 115 stipulates: Whoever sets fire, bursts water, explodes, throws poisonous, radioactive or infectious diseases pathogens or causes serious injury, death or heavy losses to public or private property by other dangerous means shall be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of not less than 10 years, life imprisonment or death. Whoever negligently commits the crime mentioned in the preceding paragraph shall be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of not less than three years but not more than seven years; if the circumstances are minor, he shall be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of not more than three years or criminal detention. Peng Xinlin also said that in the Chongqing bus crash, because of the bus driver Rans official behavior, the close relatives of the victim in the accident can claim for compensation from the bus company involved, the insurance company insured by the bus and the heritage of passenger Liu Mou and driver Ran Mou.
