The National Transportation Safety Board has been investigating the March 2007 Atlanta bus crash that killed five students from Bluffton University in Ohio. Yesterday they released the report and found that one of the key factors in the deaths was the lack of seatbetls aboard the bus.

I have litigated this issue before, as have other lawyers. The busing industry needs to wake up and install seatbelts so that lives are saved in rollover crashes. It is unbelievable that citizens are still dying and national action has not been taken on this issue.
