While I have been advocating for seat belts on buses for some time, see my prior blogs, others are happily now joining the fray. Recently Sholnn Freeman , of the Washington Post, wrote an excellent article on the need for seat belts and the increasing dangers of bus travel. Ms. Freeman’s article, As Bus Travel Grows, Probe of Fatal Crash Revives Push for New Safety Rules, can be found at: www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/04/20/AR2009042003716.html 

Much like tractor trailers, buses would be made much safer with seat belts, standards for roof crush, and anti rollover devices such as electronic stability control.
