Just a thought!!!!!

In California you must wear a seatbelt in your vehicle, if you or you passengers do not you will get a ticket. Your children must be in a car seat, or booster seat depending on age and weight!!!!!!! So why the hell do they not have seat belts in buses. Many of us put our children on buses to got to school everyday. In San Diego we took a bus from our hotel to the convention center every day....And no seat belts!!!!!!!!We are so careful with our children, but we throw that all out each and every time we put them on a bus!!!!!!!!!!!! It can't be that hard to install seat belts!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sooooooo what are your thoughts?????????

They are probably afraid kids will beat each other with the seatbelts. I would imagine those would hurt (the buckle part) if you were whipped with one....perhaps that's the reason? :)

I am a paramedic and have asked that question. I was told that the design of the seats were so that seat belts would not be needed. In an impact, the seat is cushioned to absorb the blow. Sounds like a scam to me. A neighboring town had a bus hit by a train a few years ago with 8 kids dying. I often wondered what role seat belts may have played there...
