Seatbelts on School Buses?
Lawmakers in Rhode Island are hoping to implement a new school bus bill which would require ALL school buses in the state have the kids strapped in with seat belts.
Senator Adam Satchel tells WPRI that “There have been some accidents in the past two years where there were fatalities. My co-sponsor on the House side and I both believe that had there been seat belts on those buses we probably wouldn’t have had those fatalities.”
Those opposing the bill say that seat belts would make it more difficult for kids to get out of their seats in case of a fire.
As a mom of two elementary and middle school kids who take the bus to and from school everyday, I would like to see this happen here in Massachusetts, what about you? Take our poll.
