New seat belt Rules for Small Buses | Michigan Bus Accident Lawyers
Posted on Oct 21, 2008I read a story about the new seat belt rules for small buses that were announced by the Bush administration last week. Under the new Department of Transportation regulations, smaller buses, which usually transport young children with special needs, will be required to feature lap and shoulder harness seat belts or booster seats combined with seat belts. The rules also provide larger buses be equipped with higher-backed seats, to prevent a child from being pushed forward in the event of an accident. The move comes at a time when buses have already begun adding more padding to avoid injuries during an accident.
