More than 100 bus drivers are pulled off the road as the state-wide crackdown on the tour bus industry continues.

Transportation officials say they've removed 124 bus drivers and 96 buses from the road during surprise inspections and State Police have ticketed bus drivers for more than 150 moving violations.

Gov. Cuomo ordered the crackdown after a tour bus crashed in the Bronx last month, leaving 15 people dead.

The Department of Motor Vehicles says it has used new facial recognition technology to arrest 31 drivers for using fake names to obtain multiple licenses.
