On October 30, 1989, the then acting Administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Jeffrey Miller, addressed the National Association of Pupil Transportation as to the progress his organization was making with regard to recommendations made by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) concerning school bus safety. While the NAS seemed to concur with other organization findings that school buses need not be equipped with safety belts, it did feel that all pre-1977 buses should be replaced and that standing on school buses should not be allowed. NHTSA's progress on the following is given: cross view mirrors; stop signal arms; school crossing programs; school bus routes and stops; school bus driver training; emergency evacuation drills; emergency exits; flammability of interior materials; structural integrity; seat back height; reflective markings on buses; and school bus accident data.
