School buses may be equipped with seatbelts PDF Print
Monday, 19 November 2007 22:12

New rules might allow school districts to use federal highway safety funds to equip school buses with seatbelts.

 


U.S. Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters made the proposal yesterday, and, according to the Associated Press, the rules would also require higher seat backs to better protect younger children during accidents when older children or adults get thrown from their seats.

 

New small buses would be required to include seat belts within three years of the new rule. Small buses are more prone to rollover accidents.

 

The Department of Transportation is accepting public comment on Peters’ proposed rules for the next 60 days before a decision is made.
