MAKE IT CLICK FOR SAFETY--BUT NOT ON SCHOOL BUSES!
The director of school transportation for the West Virginia Department of Education presents his argument against requiring seat belts on school buses. He draws attention to the current safety features of school buses as required by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and to the lack of evidence supporting the effectiveness of seat belts on buses. He believes that some who are emotionally wrought by concern for protecting children are led by false reasoning to believe seat belts are necessary on school buses. He concludes that, rather than spending large sums for seat belts, scare funds are better spent on effective driver training and improved vehicle maintenance.
