NHTSA: Seat belts in school buses won't be U.S. requirement

The previous post covered the story about a recent Alabama school bus accident. One student was killed in the accident and multiple other students suffered injuries. The sheriff in the town where the auto accident took place sees the tragedy as support for why school buses should have seat belts installed in them.

Safety advocates believe that the restraints could protect kids in accidents but also prevent bus drivers from becoming distracted by unrestrained students.
