It always bugged me about the lack of seat belts on school buses. Even when I was a kid. I mean, these kids are our most precious resource, right? Why deny them the use of a simple safety device which the NTSB has mandated for all passenger vehicles?
I have 3 stepchildren (who are now adults). I had a conversation with my youngest stepdaughter who has a 5 year old son who will soon be attending public school. They live a mile and a half from the school, so he will be taking the bus. I asked her if it bothered her that there's no restraint devices on school buses. She said it didnt bother her.
I'd never put my own
child in/on any vehicle that didnt have seat belts.
