Address school bus safety issues

Editor:
Very little pressure is placed on the safety of our children riding school buses. While we search for a way to stop bullying and harassment, letís not forget how important it is to transport our kids with safety in mind.

Is there a common good reason why school buses are not equipped with safety belts? Iím currently reading an article that says a school bus was hit from behind and 14 children were sent to the hospital. Imagine the parents freaking out. In our modern day, we value safety equipment for airplanes and vehicles. We build buildings and schools with safety codes. I just donít understand the reasoning why we donít protect our most precious resource. Itís simply a no brainer.

The first thing we can do as parents is secure a child in a stable car seat. As they grow older we do not let them in a vehicle without fastening their seatbelts. It boggles my mind that city officials havenít tackled this problem for the safety of our children.
