When your children get into your vehicle, what is the first thing they do? You've taught them to buckle up immediately, right? Well, why isn't that the case for school buses?

According to a petition from a concerned mother, most of the 24 million children riding school buses are not fastened safely in their seats, as 80% of school buses are not required to have seat belts.

While bus turn-overs are rare, there are times when bus drivers have to brake suddenly. In such cases, it would be nice for children to be protected by safety belts. If you agree, click here and sign this petition. Then, share.
