8News Daily Poll: Should seat belts be installed on school buses?

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — For the first time, federal regulators are supporting a movement to have a seat belt for every child on a school bus.

Right now, seat belts are not required on school buses here in Virginia. Only six states in the U.S. require them.

In the past, regulators argued that seat belts weren’t needed because school buses are incredibly safe and are built to protect passengers. Now, they want to see all students buckled up. The head of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says it’s an expensive challenge, but it will “save the lives of children.”
