Public should demand bus seat belt studies
from Stafford County Sun
According to a report commissioned by the Connecticut General Assembly, federal law requires seat belts on some school buses. Small school buses weighing less than 10,000 lbs. must have seat belts per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. As of February 2010, larger school buses, which make up about 80 percent of the nation's fleet, are not covered by national regulations. States reserve the right to devise and implement their own school bus seat belt laws.
