According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, “motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children age 4 to 14. In 2000, more than half of all children under 15 years of age killed in car crashes were completely unrestrained.”

The NHTSA adds that “school age children transported in school buses are safer than children transported in motor vehicles of any other type ... because of size and weight.”

However, should school buses be equipped with seat belts? Would they save lives?

Can Knox County afford the purchase and installation costs?

Will seatbelts make it harder to extract children following a serious crash?

Did the March FHS bus accident change your mind?
