I'm sharing this post with the red one to the right. This questions answer reflects a 2 edged sword. Think hard about it's results for both edges of that sword. There's no one answer here.

Over the past few years, I have seen quite a few bus accidents with fatalities in the news. I absolutely think school buses should have seatbelts.

It helps Bus Drivers with discipline. Even though School Buses are the safest vehicles on the road by far.

How stupid to not have seatbelts in school buses. For all the school bus accidents and rollovers you'd think this is a no brainer especially in this liberal state. Really, seriously?

Ever since it was required by law for all vehicles to have seat belts, all buses should have had them installed too. I can't believe it's taken this long to get them installed! About time!

I was in the business 30 yrs. The large buses are extremely safe. The seats are designed to be compartmentalized for safety. I can't imagine trying to get 84 kids out of a bus that caught on fire.

Exactly!!! I was on a special needs bus for 6 years. The thought of evaluating was hard to fathom.

Bus belts are one size fits all. The belts fit teens, risking injury to smaller kids? They put small & overweight out of a safe zone. We all rode, we're still alive. You drive em, but buses ARE safer.
