Buses shouldn’t be exempt from seat belt law

Posted: Monday, February 13, 2006

Governor Murkowski passed the mandatory seat belt law yet I called his representative and they said the public school buses are exempt. My kids ride the public school bus and they told me about the crowded conditions, there is usually three to a seat, they are all falling off their seats whenever they make a turn. I have also seen the gruesome videos of school buses involved in accidents, the children are not safe behind the large seats the system says is safe. I hope we can enforce the seat belt law, also include Laid Law so our children are not able to get launched out of their seats in harms way. Please help save our children, lets not wait and learn this the hard way.
