It is about time. I would really like to hear how any bus drivers out there feel about this. I think school bus drivers have a really tough job and my guess is that seatbelts would help keep things in control as well as add to the safety of the kids.

I am not a bus driver, but it would certainly seem that school busses would have been the place to start this whole seat belt business in the first place. A LITTLE LATE, BUT A GREAT IDEA!

I have been told time and again that the bus seats are designed to protect the children in case of an accident and that seatbelts aren't necessary. Has this changed?? I would also like to hear from the bus drivers on this issue!!

Great idea. The bus seats are slippery and the slightest braking can cause the kids to slide off their seats.

It is about time.
